    Im using the template above from MS and would like some help. How can i
    make it so that when i click to add a new "issue", the form opens up blank
    and not filled in with the first record in the database?

    Also, i asked this questions yesteraday, but thought maybe i can consolidate:
    Does anyone know how i can change the title on the charts in the template?


    Thanks!

    Change the Data Entry property to Yes and it will open to a new blank
    record each time.

    Open the 'Open Issues by Assigned to Chart Subform' in Form View (not design
    view).

    Right-click on the 'Issues by Assigned To' title and choose properties.
    Click on the Format tab and edit the Caption at the bottom.

    I tried that, but there is no option to open in form view (grayed out). I
    can only do Design view, pivot chart view, and pivot table view

    All I did, was double click it in the database window. Actually that opens
    it in pivot chart view - so open it in that and follow the steps.

    hmm...this was weird. I was trying to do this at work on Access 2002, and
    did not have the option to do the change. But then i went home and tried it
    on my Access 2003 version, and it worked beautifully. Weird...but its done.
    Thanks.

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!
