Access Report

Hi guys,
I am trying to create a report from a parameter Cross tab query, when I use the wizard
and select the query there is no fields appearing.
Is there any example I can follow and design the query

There is no easy way to do this...

A Crosstab query creates it fields "dynamically".
But a report needs static fields...

One workaround is to try inserting the crosstab query into a subreport, then drop this sub report onto a main report, then print the main report.

...In other words, create a Report, ...Then just drop the crosstab into it.

You will probably have to change the Main Reports orientation to landscape..., and adjust the size of the subreport (the crosstab query) to look presentable inside the main report, ...

But now the report only renders the current Crosstab.
In other words, the Main report itself does not have any fields to reference.  It only has a "contol" (the  subreport) to display.
