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.

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

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)
