Demographics.mdb Desired form Example Sample table layoutHello:  I am trying to create a form that will show demographics information for certain properties that we own,  These properties are identified by the txtID field in my table.  I then have a series of demographics information for that property.  These are designated by 6 datapoints for each property.  There are 230+ fields for each datapoint.  The form or report that I am trying to accomplish is attached as well as a copy of the db.  My problem is that the data is not really tailored for easy access as a record source for the form.  I have tried to write individual queries for each of the datapoints and then join them by I get the error message "too many fields" .  I was hoping to write a query or vba code instead of having a huge data entry or cut and paste effort if I could but am stuck on where to begin.  I think if I could make a table with the following info I could make it work.  
txtID CategoryCode(or Demographics Description) DP1 Value DP2 Value DP3 Value  ...

Any suggestions on where to begin?  I am sure you may need further explanation so feel free to ask.  Thanks in advance.
