    pivot table query source (2003)

    Is there an easy way to determine the source of a pivot table? I'm working with a table someone else built, and I'm not sure what query the data is coming from. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    the way i find the source data is to right click on the pivot table > Wizard... then click the < Back button and click the box next to the source data to be brought to it.

    Re: pivot table query source (2003)

    That gets me to the type of source (external data) but not the specific query. Is there a way to locate the specific query that is the underlying source?

    If the pivot table is based on external data, click the "Get Data..." button in Step 2 of the Pivot Table Wizard. The Query Wizard will be displayed, with the choices already filled in.
