My question was not clear I am looking to have this data returned to crystal reports for a report reflecting the data in a grid design.

I am guessing that the crystal report would have to call a stored procedure that would return the results to the report like so

product, queue, column 1, column 2, column 3.... column 8

for CR :
you can

get Tables : and in place and run select statement\design report from the table fields, etc
or
 as you said
the better solution (if it is good for your report requirements)
Stored procedure..
