I need to find another option since I cannot put a crosstab query on my form. I need to show usage by item with the month/year as the column headings. I could use the ColumnHeading properties in the crosstab query but then I would have to keep adding new months to it as the year goes on. Is there any easier way to do this? If so, any ideas you care to share?

Yes, you can force the Crosstab to  display columns that don't actually exist in your query using the PIVOT clause.  The last element of the Crosstab query looks something like:

PIVOT yourTable.yourField

You can modify that to something like:

PIVOT yourTable.yourField IN ("JAN/2013", "FEB/2013", "MAR/2013", ...)

Make sure that the spelling of the spellings in the IN ( ) clause are accurate because only those values that show up in the IN clause will be displayed.  And even if a value is not in your query results, that column will be displayed.

I'm not sure I follow you 100%. Here is the SQL for my crosstab. How would it use my date field to show the month/year and increment as the year goes on?



PARAMETERS [Forms]![frmPurchasingAnalysis1]![cbofpartno] Text ( 255 );
TRANSFORM Sum(qryPOHistory.fqtyrecv) AS SumOffqtyrecv
SELECT qryPOHistory.fpartno, Sum(qryPOHistory.fqtyrecv) AS [Total Of fqtyrecv]
FROM qryPOHistory
WHERE (((qryPOHistory.fpartno)=[Forms]![frmPurchasingAnalysis1]![cbofpartno]))
GROUP BY qryPOHistory.fpartno
PIVOT qryPOHistory.[Month/Year];

I'm not certain how your [Month/Year] field is formatted, what do those values look like.

Lets assume it is: mmm/yy

If that is the case, you could use:

PIVOT qryPOHistory.[Month/Year] IN ("Jan/13", "Feb/13", "Mar/13", "Apr/13", "May/13", "Jun/13", "Jul/13", "Aug/13", "Sep/13", "Oct/13", "Nov/13", "Dec/13")

This would give you all of the months for 2013.  If, however, your [Month/Year] column contains more than a single year, then you might have to write some code, to determine all of the [Month/Year] combinations and build that IN ( ) clause and append it to the end of your query.
