That is either a Pivot Table or a Crosstab query.

There is a crosstab query wizard in Access to help with the crosstab

You can make a Pivot table as well by changing the "View" of the table to "Pivot Table"

Then dragging and dropping the fields wherever you want them to be.

You will have to play around with both methods to see which is best for you...

But also wait for another expert to come along to give more explicit instructions.

copy and paste this sql statement in the SQL view of a query


TRANSFORM Sum(tbl1.[Total #]) AS [SumOfTotal #]
SELECT tbl1.[Item #], tbl1.[Item Desc], Sum(tbl1.[Total #]) AS [Total Of Total #]
FROM tbl1
GROUP BY tbl1.[Item #], tbl1.[Item Desc]
PIVOT tbl1.[Month] In("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December")


run CrosstabQuery

I think the Cross-tab looks better...

You need a Crosstab Query, which will give you a spreadsheet-like layout

1.Click on Create/Query Design
2.Close the Show Table window
3.Right click on Query1 and select SQL view
4.Copy this code

TRANSFORM Sum(tbl1.[Total #]) AS [SumOfTotal #]
SELECT tbl1.[Item #], tbl1.[Item Desc], Sum(tbl1.[Total #]) AS YTD
FROM tbl1
GROUP BY tbl1.[Item #], tbl1.[Item Desc]
PIVOT tbl1.Month;

5.Right click on Query1 and select Design
6.Save the query as qtabMonthlyTotals, or whatever suits you
7.Run the query

8.The columns will not display in calendar order, but you can move them when the results are displayed and they will stay in the order you set.
9.You may want to format the values in design view

Please evaluate capricorn1's post first.
He is much better at Crosstabs/SQL than I am...
