Crosstab query problem

I get an error when I try to open a report which is based on a crosstab query.  The error is due a missing field the crosstab after it is run on a certian set of data.  The report has fixed fields which display the count of records which contain a certain value in a table.  Is there some way that I can make the crosstab query display certain value feilds even if the table/query that the data comes from is not present.  Also I have tried IIF statements in the report to ignore the missing feild and display 0 but this did not work.  

Any ideas?  

The report works fine if the feild is present in the crosstab query.

You can set fixed field names in the Columns property of the query - you must match exactly the spelling in the data.

randyone,


Try Pete's suggestion first.


Some common things you can try, depednding on how your data is structured.

- Do not use fixed Fields in the report, simply insert the crosstab query as a sub report.
- Create a table with all of the fields and use a Join to display all the fields (even if they are missing)

Thanks guys for the suggestions, but I after digging that that I can add a IN option after the PIVOT statement in SQL which fixes the feilds.  I ended up with something like this:

PIVOT queNetRecordsAll.block_code In(0,4,5);

Worked perfectly!

Thanks again,

Randy
