Thank you so much for your quick response. So sorry the program is in 2003 version. Appreciate if you can give me your demo in Access 2003.

Hi: PMFJI, but I see you haven't gotten the A2003 version yet (looks like George is busy). So I thought I'd do that ...

Thank you so much Joe. Yes, still using the 2003, but in the midst of migrating to Version 2019.

Thanks you so much, the multi columns cross tab works perfectly. With that I can create standard Statistical Cross Tabs for those guys who do not know how to do pivoting in Excel.
Thanks again.

Can't they use Pivot Tables?

Hi MadPiet, that's interesting. How you go about it? Appreciate very much if you have a working sample for me to follow.

If you're using 2007, I'm not totally sure. I haven't used it in forever.
Later versions of Excel will let you do pivots until you're blue in the face, but they're more suited for analyzing data than just cranking out a standard static crosstab. So it depends what your needs are. The catch is that PowerPivot (2010 and later) uses DAX. You can avoid it for simple stuff, but if you learn some of it, you can do some seriously awesome analyses.
If that's what you're after, check out chandoo's channel on YouTube. (he has a great intro lecture that's maybe 10 mins long). If you can get your hands on a copy of a newer version of Excel, check out Rob Collie's website, - if you look at the Book stuff, there's a place to download the files. You can poke around in them and see what you can do. But that's if you need more analysis and less just reports.

Hi MadPiet
Thank so much for your feedback. I will look into it, cause I need to create Statistical Reports for Management. Thanks again
