Easy Method to convert from row to column format

I have a table with the following structure
  ProductID / ProductionDate / NumberProduced
  888               12/15/2013           25
  889               12/15/2013           17
  890               12/15/2013           19

  888               12/16/2013           12
  889               12/16/2013           30
 
  888               12/17/2013           75
  890               12/17/2013           50

I need to print a report that converts this from a row format to a columnar format
                      First          Second     Third
  Product      Date          Date          Date               Total
                     12/15/13   12/16/13  12/17/13
  888             25              12              75                   sum(888)
  889             17              30                                     sum(889)
  890             19                                50                   sum(890)
                     sum(15)     sum(16)    sum(17)         Total(sum)

The dates will be variable from 1-31 days (ability to run for whole month)
I had thought of  doing the following
  Create a query (will be modified by code for days 1-31). Query will place data in a work table with columns labeled from 1-31 (example column names: Day01Production, Day02Production, etc)
  Then my report or form will access the values in these fields to print or display.
  There are a couple of other fields that will need to be presented also. I just kept it simple
  Can this be done with a pivot table? I have worked with them in Excel. Not much experience with pivot and Access.

They're known as Crosstabs in Access. Essentially you create a Crosstab query, and then build a report using that Crosstab.

Here's an Office tutorial that might help:

Here's an example of Creating an Annual 12 Month Summary Report without VBA Code by Creatively Using a Microsoft Access Crosstab Query
http://www.fmsinc.com/MicrosoftAccess/query/crosstab-report/index.html

It's designed to handle any 12 month period. Could be adapted to handle days vs. months. A free sample database is included that you can download. Hope this helps.
