How do I create a Cross Tab Look alike, which I can update ?

How do I create a Cross Tab Look alike, which I can update ?

How do I create a Cross Tab Look alike, which I can update ?


I have this problem - something which I would think Access would be
able to do, but can I find a way - can I buggery.

I posted a message yesterday asking for help with an update able cross
tab - but I think I did not describe the problem correctly.

I'm working on a program to record student grades in a college.  I have
normalised my tables into tblAssignments, tblStudents and tblResults.

tblAssignments has a list of assignment codes and descriptions
tblStudents has all the necessary student details and
tblresults has the link between tblAssignments & tblStudents with their
awarded grade.

 Example contents of tblResults:

                         AssignmentID    StudentID    Grade
                         AVCE1-1-1        1            P
                         AVCE1-1-1        2            P
                         AVCE1-1-1        3            P
                         AVCE1-1-1        4            M
                         AVCE1-1-1        5            P
                         AVCE1-1-2        4            P
                         AVCE1-1-2        5            P

I wish to create a table/query or form that display and allow the
UPDATE of the tblResults, in a format similar to the following:

                         StudentID    AVCE1-1-1    AVCE1-1-2
                         1            P    
                         2            P    
                         3            P    
                         4            M            P
                         5            P            P

If I wanted to display the information, I can do it with a cross tab, but
I'm looking for ways of allowing the users to input the results for their
course/students/unit  in a more user-friendly format.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks Shane.

Use a Crosstab query result as the recordsource for another query.
