TRANSFORM Sum(WeekAvg.DayAvg) AS SumOfDayAvg
SELECT WeekAvg.Store, Sum(WeekAvg.DayAvg) AS [Total Of DayAvg]

I don't know exactly what you mean, but suspect it cannot be done easily.

In Microsoft Access' crosstab queries, you can only have one Column Heading and one Value option.

can you provide an example, perhaps an screenshot of what you would like it to look like in Excel?  and maybe some sample data as it is configured in your table.

I would suggest using some functions in a form, i.e. not part of the query itself, but as Text Boxes.

It would help if you could provide what Dale has asked for, and also what is the start of Week 1 of this year is for your calculations.

You can't do that in a query.

But you can create a report or form. Insert the week data in the header and the query data in the details section.
Or you can create an empty form and just drag-and-drop the query to create a subform with datasheetview of your data. Then insert the week data in the header.

The above would make your Week 1 start on Sunday 29 December 2013 - is this correct?

this is doable, if you will export the crosstab query to excel and manipulate the Excel file using VBA codes.

No, it won't. In fact, nothing will. But with a form having the crosstab as a subform, you can scroll horisontally and/or hide columns of little or no interest.

but any how i have to export it to excell to do chart analyse

Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Then you would export the crosstab to Excel, either a worksheet or a Named Range.

Look up the on-line help for:

    DoCmd.OutputTo
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet

Thanx
by the way , i just have small question in exporting to Excell
what is the code if i want to open a query , select specific data , and copy it to a specific cell in excell
for example if i want in same our example to only copy value of store number 135 where weeks in (5 to 10)
0
 
Rey Obrero (Capricorn1)Commented:
just create another query with this statement and save as "myQuery"

TRANSFORM Sum(WeekAvg.DayAvg) AS SumOfDayAvg
SELECT WeekAvg.Store
FROM WeekAvg
WHERE (((WeekAvg.Store)=135))
GROUP BY WeekAvg.Store
PIVOT WeekAvg.WekNo In(5,6,7,8,9,10)

then in the code to export to excel, change

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("WeekAvgByStore")

with

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("myQuery")
