Crystal arrays

Crystal arrays

I have a report listing customer rankings based on ytd sales. Now I need to add a column ranking
by prior YTD sales. Any suggestions for an array to do this? There may be up to 2000 customers.

RE: Crystal arrays

This would mean that a particular customer would be 7th on one list and 12th on another, right?

An enormous amount of work to do with arrays in Crystal, both sets of data would need to be put into tables and recover them.

Much easier to have a 'frame' report that showed ytd sales and prior YTD sales as a pair of subreports, put side-by-side.

RE: Crystal arrays

That was my first thought. I went the sub report route to get the prior year ranking. It takes a while to run because of the volumn of data to sift thru, but it works. Thanks for the response.

RE: Crystal arrays

Use a command to run the same SQL for both periods and join the results
