Hello,
have attached a sample db.
if you look at the table [tblFinal]
I need to create a report from that table- that displays like rptTest-but that works-
I created a crosstab query to create this report- but not sure this is how to do this-
in rptTest- i have a total field that is empty
i need a total field column to total all the weeks totals for each record.
and am trying to capture 1 week of data in report-
thankyou

Try this query...


SELECT  name,  round( sum(totalhours) , 2)
FROM tblFinal Group by  name


You can use this query to create a report.
For testing this query Goto Create then Query Design then add table then right click on query name (small tab) and goto SQL view.

The issue with Crosstab "Reports" is that they hardcode the column headings

This means that if you run the report and 8/21/2011 is not in the dataset, the report will fail.
The same issuse arises when you have a new date, since it is not in the original report, it will fail.

You can create a "Dynamic" Crosstab report though...

...But this is way too complex IMHO.

It might just be best to leave it as a crosstab query.

Finally an alternative may be to do this in a Pivot table.
