I have a query that gives me the data I need, but I want to change the display of the results in the way that Excel can Transpose. Is there a way to do that in Access 2003?

Current query result gives me
User ID    Num Inspections  Num Inspections complete
Cane12          412                                 389
Brandy34       321                                 145

I want to Transpose this to
User ID                                  Cane12          Brandy34  
Num Inspections                    412                  321
Num Inspections complete   389                  145


PS Crosstab does not work for what I wish to do

Why not simply do this?

1) Leave the query alone

2) Export it to Excel

3) Open the Excel file, select the query results, and hit Ctrl+C to copy

4) In an open cell, right click and select Paste Special from the popup menu.  Select Values and Transpose

If it was just me that was using it that is exactly what I would do, unfortunately one of my colleagues has to use it and he is very computer illiterate, I have tried to show him how easy that is in Excel, but, he wants to be able to click a button in the database and be shown the data in its transposed form :(
