    I'd appreciate wise advice and opinions about the best strategy for user
    reporting. I have my Access
    DB, full of data. Users may want to analyze it in various ways (decision
    making, synthesis). I don't want to design and redesign custom forms,
    reports or graphs. I need to provide lists, folding (hierarchical) lists,
    tables, charts. Therefore I'm planning to use Excel for data analysis and
    reporting, as it's both powerful and widely used.
    I tend to exclude Access pivot tables in favor of Excel pivot tables, as
    anyway any change in Access table semms to imply opening in XL.
    I investigated:
    - access queries, built with general purpose in mind
    - import into XL straight from Access query
    - import into XL via Query
    - import via OLAP cubes but these seem less flexible than the above.
    Can you expert help me choose a good strategy? What are the pros and cons?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
