    Unanswered: Convert from a Crosstab to Table format

    I am working with survey results which are downloaded from a web provider. These results are in a CSV (comma separated values) file and presented in a crosstab / matrix type format (see attached Zip file containing the document Survey.CSV).

    The number of questions are fixed. I can import the CSV file to a table without any problem. However is there anyway, via code, to append this data to another table that has the following fields?


    Using the attachment as an example, I would like to have the values of cells D1 through AF1 appended to the Question field and the values of D2 through DF2 appended to the Response field.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Any assistance and/or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    yes, here the code i used
    Sub makescraptable()
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, i As Integer
    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryScrap")
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    While Not rs.EOF
    For i = 2 To 49
    If rs(i).Value > 0 Then DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO Scrap ( MachineID, PostingDate, ScrapCode, Quantity )SELECT '" & rs(0).Value & "' , " & CDbl(rs(1).Value) & " , " & Val(Right(rs(i).Name, 2)) & " , " & rs(i).Value & ";"
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
    End Sub
