Dear Experts,

Could you please check the attached small database, it contains Table1 as

Item      Sales      Qty
10101      West      1
10102      East      3
10102      North      4
10103      South      6
10103      East      7
10104      West      7

based on this a crosstab query like

Item      East      North      South      West
10101                        1
10102      3      4            
10103      7            6      
10104                        7

Could you please advise is there method in Access to not summarize the quantities, rather bringing the header category for the item? I imagined it like below

Item      East      North      South      West
10101                        West
10102      East      North            
10103      East            South      
10104                        West

thanks,
