I have a table that lists certifications for employees. 

Each record contains the employee name, the certification name, a ertification date, and expiration date and a level.  Levels are formatted a text because they are sometimes numeric but other times letters.

 I would like to create a grid report with employees in the rows, columns for each cert name, and have the level displayed in the grid body.  How would I do that?

From the looks of it, you are looking to make a table report, but with some styling that will help present the data the way you need.

Start with the columns set as:
- Employee Name
- Cert 1 
- Cert 2
- Cert etc,

Then you can set the sorting as
"Sort & Group from low to high by" then pick your 'employee name'.

There are a few different tweaks you can make to get the styling and appearance you need, so just play around with it until you get what you like.
