Forcing Crosstab Query to show columns with no data

I'm using a crosstab query to flip data sideways.  But, if a field has no data, then the crosstab doesn't show the "empty" column.

Is there a trick to cause empty columns to show in the query results?

Thanks

yes, you can force empty column to show, example

hardcoding the pivot columns

pivot [Month] in ("Jan","Feb",........"Dec")


upload a copy of the db..

if you have a fixed column names, you can create a table for the column names and use it to produce the empty columns...
