    Arrow Displaying multiple text values in crosstab query


    I've created a cross tab query using the query wizard. There are two row headings. Center and Team Description. As far as the headings they relate to different teams. Team 1, Team 2, etc. Now the field used calculated for each row column intersection is Person. I was wondering if there is a was to create a function to display all of the persons on the particular team for that center and team description. I was thinking about trying to do something along the lines of name1, name 2, etc. but all I can get the query to do is output the first or last name. I'm familiar with access but haven't dived into much SQL code at all. I've looked all over this forum and internet and have had no luck. Really would appreciate some help thank you!

    Not following your description. Could you show sample of input data and the output you now get?

    Output: ||| Center ||| Team Description ||| Team 1 ||| Team 2 ||| Team 3|||||| EXAMP ||| Communications ||| John D ||| ||| ||| (Now say theres another person in the Center: EXAMP, Team Description: Communications, and on Team 1 they would be placed in the same field as John D)

    Crosstab can't do this. How many teams. Create a field for each team with an expression:
    SELECT Center, Team Description, IIf(Team="Team1", Person, Null) As Team1, IIf(Team="Team2, Person,Null), ...;

    How does this structure help you? Why not just a regular SELECT with sorting on the Center and Team Description fields?

    I'm using it to generate a report from a sharepoint site. I'm going about it this way because the format the report needs to be cannot be achieved from the table layout. I'm getting a syntax error reguarding the expression 'Team Description' when I try to build the query right now. Heres my code: SELECT Center, Team Description, IIf(Team="1", Person, Null) As Team1, IIf(Team="2, Person,Null), IIf(Team="3, Person,Null), IIf(Team="Pool, Person,Null), IIf(Team="Shift, Person,Null); Sorry I'm very new to coding in SQL

    You are missing second " around the text values in each of the IIf expressions, except the first one.
