What is "detail in columns"? Calc's pivot tables can be linked to registered databases.
Tools>Options>Base>Databases, add your database under some name.
Calc menu:Data>PivotTable>Create...
[X]Create from registered database ...

I only know how to speak in Access terms. There I would format the page to display the report in columns and it would let me choose left to right or top to bottom, column width, etc.

Please do not move away from MS Access. Once you used Access only for some time, you will not be able to use anything else. I don't know why. If you want to use your Access data in the context of this office suite, you can connect a Base document to your .mdb and add some queries to the Base document (including pass-through queries which are interpreted by the JET driver so you may even use the datedif function)
