A similar question has been asked several times before, but none have quite answered mine sufficiently.
I have an Access crosstab query which is used to produce a Report. The problem is the columns that the query produces are different each time. The report needs to know which columns to expect, but it's impossible to know.

Is there a way around this?

This is because this is not inherently an easy thing to do...

So I am not sure any posts here will make this any less painful...
