03/01/2000, 3000
04/01/2000, 3000

Month                  2000        2001            2002   2003

You'll want to group by month.  Create a formula to calculate the month of the date value and group on that.

If the years are static then you can create separate formulas for each year

Formula: 2000

If Year({datefield]) = 2000 Then

repeat for each year you want a column for

create summaries for each of these "year" formulas grouped by month and display those.
Or a simple cross tab query would give you this same results.
