FROM tbStudentInfo INNER JOIN (tbDetailsOfDates INNER JOIN (tbDetailsOfWeekday INNER JOIN (tbPlacement INNER JOIN tbStudentGroupList ON tbPlacement.GroupName = tbStudentGroupList.GroupName) ON tbDetailsOfWeekday.DayNo = tbPlacement.DayNo) ON (tbDetailsOfWeekday.DayNo = tbDetailsOfDates.DayNo) AND (tbDetailsOfDates.DayNo = tbPlacement.DayNo) AND (tbDetailsOfDates.WeekNo = tbPlacement.WeekNo) AND (tbDetailsOfDates.TermNo = tbPlacement.TermNo)) ON tbStudentInfo.StudentID = tbStudentGroupList.StudentID
WHERE (((tbPlacement.Venue)="4d") AND ((tbPlacement.VenueCode)="sh"))

Does the TRANSFORM statement not require an aggregate function?

e,g,

TRANSFORM Sum(tbPlacement.TimeCode

or

TRANSFORM Var(tbPlacement.TimeCode

By way of explanation, in a crosstab query, if the field in the TRANSFORM statement is not part of an Aggregate function, it must be named in the GROUP BY clause.  Normally, that field is wrapped in an aggregate function such as Sum, First, Last, Min, Max, etc. so the crosstab can serve as a collector of data, with rows as per the SELECT statement and additional columns as per the PIVOT clause.  It is hard to imagine a meaningful crosstab query without an aggregate function in the TRANSFORM statement.  When the TRANSFORM statement is an aggregate function, it is not part of the GROUP BY clause.
