Report based on Crosstab Query

I had this question after viewing Ms Access Crosstab Report with variable number of columns.

Dear Experts,
I am facing a similar situation but the problem is instead of numeric columns, i have Text Fields as columns. Any addition of column (Storage_Port) does not reflect in report. However, any change in Product / Qty gets updated.

Would be obliged if i can get help.
Db is attached herewith for reference purpose.

no db attached
I have a database with a working example.  Look at "Expense Example" which runs the report and  "Report from variable crosstab" which builds the table that contains the ID's and headers used in the report.

As you will see by the example, it doesn't matter what data type you are pivoting.  The table that holds the headers holds the IDs that are used for joining and selecting records as well as the text that will go into the column captions.

The database is too big to upload.  If you would like me to send it, please send a PM with your email address.  Do not post it here.

I did not spend much time with the MS example.  In fact I stopped reading it when the author referred to unbound controls as unbounded.
