Chart type report in Access 2003

I think this to be one of the hardest questions I will ever ask.

I would like a report that display all the names of personnel assigned to a division on the left hand side of letter paper, landscaped, going from top to bottom and a list of all the PQS's we have going across the top.  Then placing a C in a box where the person completed the PQS, an A where they are assigned or an I where it's in-Progress.  Is this possible in Access 2003? If so How?

Thank you
John Sheehy

This sounds like an excellent candidate for a PivotTable report.  First make a query containing just the fields you need in the report, including the C and A as calculated fields, then make a PivotTable based on it.  See my Access Archon articles on PivotTables and PivotCharts -- it was written for Access 2002, so you will have a few more features available in Access 2003, but the basic principles are the same.
Here are links to download these articles (including a sample database):
And here is a screen shot of a PivotTable:

BTW, PivotTables and PivotCharts are an exception to the general rule that it is not a good idea to print forms -- if you don't need report headers or footers, you can just print the forms; if you do need report headers/footers, use a subform/subreport control with the PivotTable form as its source object.

Sorry it has tken me so long to get back, I have been away for the past two days.  I am looking at your possible solutions now and will return in a bit with any questions I may have.  Thanks
