Access - Grand Total Column in Crosstab Query

Please offer if there is a way for me to include a Grand Total for the column field in a crosstab quert - Access 2013.

I am able to calculate totals (based on counts) for rows, but not columns.

Thank you.

If you use it for a report then you can use this approach to get the desired result...
If you want it as a query then probably you want to create another query that uses crosstab as its source and manipulate it accordingly.

Yes, you can create a "Totals" column by simply adding a field to the query grid, setting it up as a rowHeader

Field:   Row Total: [yourField]
Table:  tablename
Total:   Sum
Crosstab: Row Heading

However, this column will by default show up to the left of the values in your "Value" column (matrix).  But when you display this a report, you can move that column to the far right side of the report.

Yes, that is from the query grid.

if you provide some sample data, I could set it up for you.

The step you offered I can do. Please let me clarify - this will create a separate totals column across the row, but how can I add a separate Grand Total row at the bottom of all rows in the query?

Hope this makes sense.
You would need a union query to do that.  However, it would appear that you are making the mistake of thinking of a query as though it were a report.  It is not.    If you want to make a report out of a crosstab, the best option is  to export to Excel and add totals there.  Or, create a report.  The report can be problematic if the columns aren't fixed but there are ways. offers a sample database that shows how to build a variable report.  They also have many interesting articles and excellent tools.
