Reverse a CrossTab Query

Her is my data:

REASON            10/29/06      10/28/06      10/27/06
15            0      1      10
CANCEL_1            5      5      14
CANCEL_2            36      22      79
CANCEL_3            40      36      74


I want to change it and move it around so it looks like this:

REASON      DAY      VALUES
15      10/29/06      0
CANCEL_1      10/29/06      5
CANCEL_2      10/29/06      36
CANCEL_3      10/29/06      40
15      10/28/06      1
CANCEL_1      10/28/06      5
CANCEL_2      10/28/06      22
CANCEL_3      10/28/06      36
15      10/27/06      10
CANCEL_1      10/27/06      14
CANCEL_2      10/27/06      79
CANCEL_3      10/27/06      74

This is like reversing a crosstab in ACCESS.  

How do I do this? Union Query ? Cross Tab?  Can I use a Query Wizard in ACCESS?

Hi,

I'd do

Select
   Reason, "10/29/06" as Day, [10/29/06] as Values
From tableName
union
Select
   Reason, "10/28/06" as Day, [10/28/06] as Values
From tableName
union
Select
   Reason, "10/27/06" as Day, [10/27/06] as Values
From tableName

unfortunatley there is no tool to do this for you - so you would have to rely on union queries.

I never had used SQL Viewer while in ACCESS.  

I had to use it here.  This code worked well except I cannot use the FIELD name, VALUES.  That name is a reserved field name and I had to change it.
