Default Crosstab Query Reporting Question

Hi All,

I have a problem that has me running in circles, so i have come to ask for some assistance. Here goes

i have a crosstab query that works perfectly, the query design is as follows
Field 1 = Stores (Group By and Row Heading) - txt field
Feild 2 = RunNumber (Group By Column Heading) - txt field
Field 3 = Amount (Sum, Value) - Curr Field

nb no data in this crosstab is static, it changes monthly and each months data is set via a simple date param.

Now i can create a report for this no probs, but the report uses the Row and Column Headings as fields,(which is how the reports work)

My Prob = as the data in the Row and Column fields changes monthly i cannot have a std report stored in access to use each month. Is there a way of being able to output this data to a report each month without the need to create a new report or export to excel, rft etc.
My goal is to have the end user click a cmd button and the report will print for the month they are working in.

I realise this may be a major task to post here, but even if a few pointers could be given to me that could set me off in a positive direction would be great.

if my explaination is a bit grey let me know and i will try to explain further

Yes, I am not sure I know what you mean when you say that "as the data in the Row and Column fields changes monthly i cannot have a std report stored in access to use each month."

Usually the row and column headings would either stay the same or be dynamic month to month. What about this is changing that does not allow you to use a standard format?

Otherwise, you may have to make changes to the report programatically. Can you post some sample xtabs that have the different values?
