    Question How to use data from uploaded excel file and display a chart based on the query?

    Current situation:I have a graph chart and my row source type is a Query. So I retrieved data from the Query that I built.



    However , I want to get the data from the uploaded excel file.
    Any ideas how to do it?Vba?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have a form that will prompt user in the beginning to upload the excel file and replaced the old table in Access- "CrossSystemData"

    Basically , I want to pull data from Excel file , Run the query(Data from excel file) then excute to "display a chart based on my query"
    Is it possible ?


    Query SQL: "PolyWrongRegInsCount"

    Code:
    SELECT GROUPING.INSTITUTION, Count(*) AS NO_OF_GROUP
    FROM (SELECT DISTINCT CATEGORY, GROUP_NO, INSTITUTION, IIF(Left(INSTITUTION,1)="P","POLYCLINIC","HOSPITAL") AS INS_TYPE FROM CrossSystemData WHERE INSTITUTION NOT LIKE "*UNKNOWN*")  AS GROUPING
    WHERE (((GROUPING.CATEGORY)="WRONG REG") AND ((GROUPING.INS_TYPE)="POLYCLINIC"))
    GROUP BY GROUPING.INSTITUTION;
    My Chart SQL :

    Code:
    SELECT PolyWrongRegInsCount.[INSTITUTION], PolyWrongRegInsCount.[NO_OF_GROUP]
    FROM PolyWrongRegInsCount;

    you import the data via:
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, tbl, File, True

    then your chart should be self updating via the query you use, now that the new data is there.

    You can also link data in excel to access. There are wizards in the ribbon.
