Dynamic Crosstab...SOS

Hi

I'm trying to produce a report based on a dynamic crosstab. Ultimately
i'd like the report to actually become a sub report within a student
end of year record of achievement. The dynamic sub-report will capture
what grades the student has achieved in a list of different subjects
and the reason I need it to be dynamic is that students take different
subjects.

Basically I've been trying to doctor the KB article on dynamic
crosstabs for the Northwind Database just so that I can produce a
dynamic report, I haven't got to the sub-report bit yet. I've created
a crosstab query list the grades per subject that uses a where
parameter for a report date field in a separate form- just like the
example. This seems fine.

I've created a report with 11 headings/columns and set up a command
click to open the report from a form that contains the date- again just
like the example. But I don't think this is right as don't need 11
columns or to total anything. i hust need to be able to dynamically
change the column headings according to the list of subjects a student
is taking. I've altered what I think are the references within the
code for the report to my own forms and queries but this is where my
knowledge falls down. Using the code below I'm getting an "error code
13- Type Mis Match" with the de-bugger highlighting:

lngRowTotal = lngRowTotal + Me("Col" + Format(intX))

- as the culprit! I would be so grateful to anyone who could help me
with this, I've been struggling to do this for over a year now, plus if
I can get this report to work, I then need to nest it as a sub-report
in the main end of year achievement report. I'll gladly provide more
detailed information if any body shows an interest in helping me with
this.

The Format() should be like this:

Format(intX,"00")

The type mismatch error may mean the value of the control is not a
numeric value. Try the & string concatenation symbol instead of the
plus sign.

lngRowTotal = lngRowTotal + Me("Col" & Format(intX,"00"))
To get a zero in place of a NULL use the Nz() function in place of the
call to the xtabCnulls function:

Nz(value,0) or Nz(value)

You can even replace the NULL with whatever you want, numeric or alpha:

Nz(value,"That wasn't what I wanted")
