    No coding. Open the query in design view, click on menu VIEW - SQL View.
    In the last line of the SQL statement you will see something like this --
    PIVOT Staff.Initials;
    Staff is the table name and Initials is the field name that has the column
    data.

    Edit it to look like this --
    PIVOT Staff.Initials IN("FF","CD","JF","SF","KK");
    The information in the quotes are the data stored in the field. Just
    include all the possible data the will be in the query results and place it
    in the order you want it displayed.

    Thanks for the suggestion. On the one hand, it will get rid of the
    #Name? error which is nice but on the other hand, I have all these
    blank columns with no data in them. That will be confusing to some
    people. Is there a way to hide/unhide based on whether or not there is
    any data in the column?

    Thanks,

    I am sure there is code to hide if there is no data but you will still have
    blank horizontal space. Text boxes can shrink vertically but not
    horizontialy.

    I was finally able to work something out. In the Form's OnLoad event I
    put this code

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    ' Created by Charles D Clayton Jr
    ' May 9, 2006
    ' Dyamically populate Datasheet from crosstab query
    '
    Dim I As Integer
    Dim Z As Integer
    Dim rst As Recordset

    Set rst = Me.Form.RecordsetClone

    ' Hide all columns except Iso
    For I = 1 To 7
    Me("txt" & I).ColumnHidden = True
    Next

    ' Ignore 1st four columns (Iso, Sheet, Service, Line)
    ' Unhide those columns that have data
    On Error Resume Next
    For I = 1 To rst.Fields.Count - 4
    Z = I + 4
    Me("txt" & I).ColumnHidden = False
    Me("txt" & I).ControlSource = rst.Fields(Z).Name
    Me("lbl" & I).Caption = "Rev " & I - 1
    Next

    ' Clean up
    Set rst = Nothing
    End Sub

    In my form I have 8 text and label boxes (txt1, lbl1, txt2, lbl2, etc.)
    plus one for the drawing (txtIso). txtIso remains unhidden but I hide
    all remaining text and label boxes. I determine how many fields of
    data are in the crosstab query and then subtract four since for my
    query I have 5 rows with the 1 column and 1 value. Finally I unhide
    the columns that have values.

    Hopefully several people more experienced than me will look at the code
    and make some suggestions on how to improve/correct it.

    Blessings,

    Charles D Clayton Jr
     
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.

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.
