Do you mean reverting the cross tab to original table, or creating a make table query?

Take a look at my article on temp tables.temp tables.  You can simply pass that subroutine the name of your query and the name you want to give your new table.

UpdateTempTable "NewTableName", "CrossTabQuery"

Why are you making a temp table?  Why can't you use the crosstab directly as the RecordSource for the form/report/code?

Hello Pat,

My boss keeps changing her mind.  My form was based off the orginal table.  I don't want to change my form..also how do you drop down options in a table or can you not?

You seem to have changed the question.  Crosstabs usually have variable columns but sometimes you can force them to be fixed.  For example, if you always want to show 12 months, you can add a ColumnHeadings property and that will fix the number of columns so even if you don't have data for March, March will still show up where it belongs.  

The second question sounds like you are asking about table level lookups and all I can say about that is DON'T DO IT!!!!!  It results in nothing but trouble once you move into queries and code.  They are only a crutch for people who don't know how to write queries.  Once you know how to write a query, you have no need for them.  All your maintenance is done via forms anyway and that is where you need the combo to be.  NOT in DS view of a table or query.
