Default Cross-Tab query


Is it possible to transform an Access cross-tab query to a table?


Cross-tab query returns:

Company South North West East
Comp1 10 11 12 14
Comp2 15 16 17 18
Comp3 19 20 21 22

I want to end up with a table which has the following fields:

Can you open the query in designer view, and then click Query in the text menu, and then select Make Table query. This will make a table from your query results, which is good for the first run. Then change the query to an Append query for subsequent runs. Then also create a delete query for the new table. Then each time you want to fill the table, do this with your code:

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryDELETEmyNewTable"
DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryAPPENDmyXTabData"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

This will clean out old data, and repopulate your table with new data. Then DoCmd.OpeReport etc.

Did that help?

Thank you Sir!

I have got the following answer from another site:(it works fine)

Create a new query that is based on your existing crosstab query. Make the new query a 'make table' query (see menu option Query > Make Table Query) and follow the on-screen steps.
