I have created a report in Access2010 and seems like the data alignment in report view is not what I want. My current view is like the pix in the following URL. Is it possible to have those tasks shown just below the headers (months)?
I tried to merge those cells for display or even those criteria like Does Not Equal blank but both are not what I want. Or should I better modify my query?
my current tabular view
There are two tables for such layout.
Tasks: TaskTitle, ProjectID, StartDate, DueDate
Projects: ProjectName, ProjectID
key: ProjectID (number)
For the query I am using, it is a bit "weird" and I wonder that is the main reason I can't get those tasks aligned to top. However, some of the tasks may have StartDate and/or DueDate empty. A big thank you in advance for your help since I seldom work with MS Access. Thanks in advance!!!
TRANSFORM [Tasks].[TaskTitle] AS [the value]
FROM Projects LEFT JOIN Tasks ON [Projects].[ID] =[Tasks].[ProjectID]
GROUP BY [Projects].[ProjectName], [Tasks].[TaskTitle]
ORDER BY [Projects].[ProjectName]
PIVOT Format ([Tasks].[StartDate], "MMM-YYYY");
