Columnar report

Postby papadcha » Fri Mar 13, 2015 10:33 am

Hello everybody.

I want your help to create (if possible) a columnar report in the following database using the table "Κινήσεις" sorting by "Ημερομηνία" and creating columns with specific record values in the following fields "Λογαριασμός πίστωσης 1", "Λογαριασμός πίστωσης 2", "Λογαριασμός χρέωσης 1", "Λογαριασμός χρέωσης 2" and under each column displayed the value of "Αξία πίστωσης 1", "Αξία πίστωσης 2", "Αξία χρέωσης 1", "Αξία χρέωσης 2".

I include the base file for and an image to zip (link below) to show you how I want the report to be.

Thanks in advance.

This type of "report" is better shown as a "Base form" rather than a "Base report" (confusing, I know, but sometimes forms makes better reports than "reports" do). You would make a query, and then put a tablegrid based on that query into the form.

But looking at the image - that is a very wide report. Just due to the width, I agree with Villeroy you're better off importing the data into Calc. You'll still need to write a query to get the data together, then import the query into Calc and format as you want.
