    Hi
    I have a simple table that has the following fields:

    Name, Assignment_number, Description, Start_date, End_date

    I need to display either in a form or a report a track of the workload
    of different individuals over a given week (or between two dates) in
    the following format:
    1/1/2006 1/2/2006 1/3/2006 1/4/2006
    1/5/2006 1/6/2006
    Name1 Description Description Description
    Name2 Description Description
    Name3 Description Description
    Description

    I can do it easily in Excel. Is this do-able in Access? How? Any help
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Utkarsh,

    Is this do-able in Access? Yup! But I guess you want the longer answer. I
    can envisage two ways of doing this: one is to use a fairly complex query (or
    command object) and the other is to create a temporary table compatible with
    your report format. I need however to know how proficient you feel yourself
    to be with SQL and/or VBA and/or Access.

    I guess your column headings that are the first days of Gregorian calendar
    months will change over time. They are therefore candidates for query
    parameters (or perhaps you only need to supply the first one from which you
    can generate a fixed number of successive dates). Also what happens when an
    assignment period spans a month break? Do you include the description twice,
    once under each month?

    Finally, as a 'wicked' thought: do you have MS Project on your system? This
    application 'cries out' for Access to post the data into Project. By
    implication I know you have Excel which would be a second-best output medium.

    Regards,

    Rod
