Hi Experts!!! I need help in creating a report/subreport from a table which will have dynamically built/variable columns. I have attached a screen shot of the actual table.

Any help will be appreciated.

The biggest problem with doing this is that you don't have design access to objects when running under the control of the runtime engine or if you distribute the database as .mde/.accde/.accdr

I'm hoping this isn't really a dynamic table but is rather a crosstab report that changes header labels as columns change.  You can find an example in this KB article.

You don't have to change it although temp tables cause bloat and so they are not good practice.  You can use the KB article regardless of whether the source is a table or a cross-tab query.
