Dear Experts

I need to produce a report to show responses for an event (ie Yes / No / Maybe)

The report is basically a list of names which are grouped by their response.  I would like to show the results in 3 columns - this I can do but only by applying columns to the whole report which means that each grouping starts on a new page - which I don't want.

Is there a way to in effect just apply columns to the detail section of the report?

Alternatively is there a clever way round this issue

Many thanks

create a query with these columns , and use the query as the record source of your report

YesResp:IIF([response]="Yes","Yes","")  
NoResp:IIF([response]="No","No","")  
MaybeResp::IIF([response]="Maybe","Maybe","")  


see if that will work for your report

Hi capricorn1

Thanks for that - I tried it but has the same effect as per previously - the original query had 2 columns [Full Name] & [Attending].  or have I missed in what you're suggesting

Hi capricorn1

here is the query ,..

the original ( I added a grouping bit to put the groupings in order) ....

SELECT [AGM This Year Responses].[Full Name], [AGM This Year Responses].Attending, IIf([Attending]="Yes",1,IIf([Attending]="No",2,IIf([Attending]="Maybe",3,4))) AS GroupOrder
FROM [AGM This Year Responses];

Open in new window


The one post your post ...

SELECT [AGM This Year Responses].[Full Name], [AGM This Year Responses].Attending, IIf([Attending]="Yes","Yes","") AS YesResp, IIf([Attending]="No","No","") AS NoResp, IIf([Attending]="Maybe","Maybe","") AS MaybeResp
FROM [AGM This Year Responses];

Open in new window

did you use the last sql statement as the record source of your report?

open report in design view,
add three textboxes and set the control source to YesResp, NoResp, mayBeResp  accordingly

you can remove the textbox for "Attending" if you want to.
