Dear all,

The title of my question might be confusing. I'm trying to convert the values in the Dates column to headers, populating its contents with the values data.   See below tables.  I won't know the contents of Dates, its type is Data/Time. Is this possible?

You can use Crosstab query:
TRANSFORM Sum(Table1.Values) AS SumOfValues
SELECT Table1.Name
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.Name
PIVOT Table1.Dates;

Open in new window

In designer:
crosstab
