Streamlining Summaries


     I feel like I made this database in a roundabout way, suggestions to streamline are welcome.

     I have a group of people (fixed) and I need to log hours they work as well as what type of hours those are.

     I currently have two tables
     STUDENTS which contains Name and a UID
     I have a field related by NAME with fields that contain Date, # of hours worked and type of hours work.

     To generate a report of what hours students have worked I created a layout with the following parts:

     Sub-summary by Students (leading)
     Sub-summary by Type of Hour (leading)
     Sub-summary by Type of Hour (Trailing)

     The result, while functional, is rather clunky. I want a layout that is just

     Hours worked in type X
     Hours worked in type Y
     Hours worked in type Z


     Thoughts? Thanks.
