    I have a table with a list of names e.g. surname, forename, telephone
    number, emailaddress
    I would like to show this in a table where the surname is the column heading
    preferably with row heading showing what the data is.
    Is this possible with a crosstab query and if so how?
    Thanks

    I think so, but it's quite horrible (the surnames should be unique):
    Create a union query like the following:
    Select "forename" as attribute, surname, forename as data
    From [your table]
    Union All
    Select "telephone number" surname, [telephone number] From [your table]
    Union All
    Select "emailaddress", surname, emailaddress From [your tablename];

    Then write a crosstabe query based on this union query that is grouping
    by attribute and surname and uses the "first" or "last" function for data.
    Use attribute as row heading, curname as column heading and the
    "first of data" column as value.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
