This should be a s simple as

Insert a cross tab
Choose SALESMAN for the rows
Choose the date for the columns (summarize by month)
Choose the qty for the summary fields.

maybeu dont under stand me ok
i agree its crosstab remember that i have date with the format ( DD/MM/YYYY ) inside the data base
i need this date to be filtered

i mean all the sales invoices between 01/01/2008 - 31/01/2008 will be Month ( 1 )
                                              Between 01/02/2008-28-02-2008 will be month(2 )
as columns


i need the month withour the day and year

Perfectly clear.  Is it a date field or a string?

If string create a formula to use in the cross tab.  Something like
Date({YourDAteField})

When you put a date field in the cross tab column you have an option to use each day, week, month etc.
