Add Pivot Charts back to Access.
The original Pivot tables and Pivot Charts in Access 2007 were very easy to use and a great benefit to builders and users. I am still using 2007 for that very reason, since I have many applications that rely on the pivot functionality and I am a great believer in graphical representation using Pivot Charts.
Thanks everyone for voting and supporting this suggestion.
As you are all aware, Pivot Charts and Pivot Tables have been removed from Access 2013 because the technology they relied on was deprecated (Office Web Components).
Voting and commenting on this suggestion (and on this https://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop-application/suggestions/11510094-put-pivot-tables-back-into-access-surely-a-databa) has been very valuable to us to distill the requirements and needs.
Since Pivot Charts as we all know them, will not come back to Access, we are updating the status accordingly and would like to encourage you to continue and use your free votes to support other suggestions.
The fact that you need unnecessary extra steps to create a PivotTable by exporting it to excel plus the need for other extra cell adjustments is a very waste of time and annoying especially when using such tools frequently. Access should have its own PivotTable tool just like the previous versions and not crossing from one program to another. I do not expect to use other program like Excel or PowerBI to get what many of us want when this was seamlessly done through Access by itself. Its an indispensable tool that Access should get back. PivotTables make Access more usable and powerful. WE NEED IT!
Please put pivot back in!

The removal of pivot tables and pivot charts prevents my company from migrating to new versions of Office such as OFF 2016 or OFF 365, due to the functional regressions induced in various production application systems.
We will have to stay in Office 2010 a few more years.
MS Access becomes pretty darn useless beyond basic usage without pivot tables. Do you and Microsoft want to enter the age of Data or not?? what a regressive move...
Ms-Access, le seul logiciel qui rétrograde ses fonctionnalités avec les nouvelles versions !
Et qui ne tient aucun compte de l'avis des utilisateurs.
C'est incompréhensible. J'aimerais avoir une explication.

If Access will be part of our future, pivot tables and charts are a must. Shame on Microsoft for removing the tools we need to maximize the benefits of their products. This fuels us looking for alternatives to Microsoft.
With out these functions my colleges will stop using access. Maybe that is the intention? How can you take away something so useful and uis the only reason I used access in the first place
I was shocked when I couldn't find my charts in access 2016. I cant believe that Microsoft has depreciated this nice feature in new versions. please put it back in newer versions.
Please put it back to Access 2019, we all need it. I believe it's realizable for them to bring Pivot tables even office web components back.
Please put pivot back in
please put pivt chart and pivot table in ms access 2019
Microsoft is only doing this so they can make more money on their other BI applications. This really is insane. This has burst my microsoft bubble. I will be stepping away from microsoft. I was even looking at moving to business central. But seeing this.... Not a company I want to work with if I have the choice.
No Pivot Charts in Access 2019!
I just can't understand your development, you could have the BEST business intelligence tool in access, Tableau is not good enough.
I'm going to be stuck in Access 2010 forever!
Put Pivot Tables back into Access. Surely a database should be able to analyse data, including text fields
HUGE, HUGE loss. Please bring pivot tables back to Access 2016. Besides being inconvenient, MS Excel does not have the same functionality as MS Access pivot table. Will have to find and use my old Access until then, I am so deeply dependent on these pivot tables. What was MicroSoft thinking????
I was kinda hoping that they would improve it (integrate charts so that we could copy them to MS Word), not remove it.
Please added back to Access
removing this feature is damaging our business.
I spent weeks creating charts.....and now nothing. Access used to be an all-in-one small platform tool. Not any more. If I have to use Excel to process graphics for data stored in an Access split database, then I'm done developing in Access for more than to support legacy tools already out there
I really don't get it, the business reason behind it!! Bring it baaaaack. I m the business for you MS, and I m not happy, so here is your 'business' reason to bring it back!

Shame on you. What about all the hours I spent in creating pivot-graphs? You have no care for customers.
I cannot believe this! Pivot tables and charts are extremely helpful in Access. Please bring those features back.
