Please bring back Dynamic Charts and Pivot Tables
Hello, some of the features that have been dropped on Access from the 2013 version is a frustrating fact.
Specifically, I'm talking about the PivotTables and PivotCharts.
I developped for my company two applications that manage the commercial activity and another for the management of operational risks.
This feature (PivotTables and PivotCharts) had been very useful for reporting in the 2007 and 2010 versions.
Now this feature is no longer supported and our IT Department has migrated the Office to the 2016 version, I am really stuck.
Please take into consideration this request and consider the possibility of its reactivation.
We realize that Pivot Tables and Charts have been a great feature and many Access users found them to be highly useful.
As you may already know, they have been removed as the technology they relied on, was no longer supported (Office Web Components).
At this point we have no plan to bring Pivot Tables and Charts back. However we are looking into ways to improve and modernize data visualization in Access.
pls give us back this amazing tool

Access should definitely provide for Charts and Graphs! In older versions the interface in Access was not equal to Excel, but at least you could insert a simple graph into an Access report! Data visualization is not a new disruptive concept, this is often an essential requirement for any business app. Asking end users of an Access app to export data to Excel in order to create their own chart/graph is a big fail.
With this feature deprecated, I changed from Pivot Form a charts to a vba call to excell ordering to generate the pivot table and the associated chart. The change was to view a open excel with the chart and pivot table instead of a open form. A lot of samples in the web with generating pivot tables and chart from vba in excell.
