I have a small requirement for report, i want to develop a report based on dates and employee performance.Suppose i give the parameter from date as 01'st jan 2011 and end date as 31'st Jan 2011 then employee hrs will be as summary as rows distributed among days with the given date range as columns.How to make each day as column automatically.

Sounds like a matrix report. Employees names as rows, dates as columns, hours as cells.

One Suggestion create one table use Before Report trigger & Insert data into a date column on the bases of from & to parameter and select this column in main query.
LD number;
begin	
Select  to_number(to_char(:To_Date,'dd'))  into LD  from dual;
Delete from Date_Range;
commit;

for i in 1..LD loop
Insert into Date_Range values(i||To_Char(:FromDate,'Mon-YYYY'));
end loop;
Commit;
  
return (TRUE);

end;


Output

01-FEB-12
02-FEB-12
03-FEB-12
04-FEB-12
05-FEB-12
06-FEB-12
07-FEB-12
08-FEB-12
.
.
.
29-FEB-12


Hope you'll get idea.

Regards,
Irfan

I prefer row generator.
SQL> set verify off
SQL> get p
  1  select to_date('&&date_from', 'dd.mm.yyyy') + level - 1 res
  2  from dual
  3  connect by level <= to_date('&date_to', 'dd.mm.yyyy') -
  4*                     to_date('&&date_from', 'dd.mm.yyyy') + 1
SQL> /
Enter value for date_from: 01.01.2012
Enter value for date_to: 31.01.2012

RES
----------
01.01.2012
