    Copy and Paste Charts in Access (Access 2000 or hi

    I have a need (well someone does anyway) to be able to copy and paste
    a chart from an Access form to somewhere else. Possibly a word document.
    The sort of thing it's a piece of cake to do from Excel.
    As far as I can remember it's a nightmare if not impossible in Access.
    Are there any handy tips available on this, or am I back into the murky world
    of VBA.
    I know that I can write some code to do it eventually, but I want an easy life.

    Make sure that the chart control has its Enabled property set to Yes. You (or the user) can then right-click the chart and select Copy from the popup menu. The chart can then be pasted into Word, Excel, ...; select Edit | Paste Special... to see which options are available.

    Many thanks Hans.

    Amidst all the programming clutter in my brain
    I had forgotten the simple and obvious.

    Oh well.
