Pivot design to add more (stationary) column headers

P: 1
I have this data:

Company Service Planned Authorized Date
XYZ 1 100.00 50.00 FY12
XYZ 1 100.00 25.00 FY11
XYZ 2 20.00 20.00 FY12
XYZ 3 100.00 25.00 FY11
XYZ 3 100.00 25.00 FY12
XYZ 3 100.00 25.00 FY13
XYZ 4 15.00
XYZ 4 15.00
XYZ 5 54.00 23.00 FY12
XYZ 5 54.00 15.00 FY11
XYZ 6 70.00 70.00 FY12
XYZ 7 125.00 75.00 FY12
XYZ 7 125.00 25.00 FY11
XYZ 8 63.00
XYZ 8 63.00
XYZ 9 48.00 20.00 FY11
XYZ 9 48.00 4.00 FY11
XYZ 3 100.00 25.00 FY14

I need to turn that data into:

Filter by: Company Name
service (row)
amount planned (column)
authorized total (column)
years (column)
delta (column) = [amount planned] - [amount authorized]
authorized amount per year (values)

I have tried using pivots, but it seems to limit me on the column headers...

The idea is to build this in access so I can import data tables, format into the above, and export the documents in excel. If there is a better way to do this please let me know as well! Please help!

I usually start with good ole Allen Browne's crosstab tutorial when trying to do something beyond what the wizards will accomplish.

See if this information will help: •Crosstab query techniques

If not, please post back with your questions.

Might be easier to just query the table from excel as the data source when you create the pivot table, I find managing pivot tables in excel much, much easier.

*EDIT: Ensure you set your connection to "Share Deny None" to avoid locking your db!
