Cross tab not joining columns

Cross tab not joining columns

Cross tab not joining columns

I am very new to crystal reports and am trying to create what I think should be a fairly simple report. I am using version 11.5. I have 3 fields that I have inserted into a cross tab. It is creating two separate tables instead of one. Here is what I'm using:

loan type - row 1
term - column 1
amt packaged - summarized field

My group header is grouping by the term. The fields are pulling from a database and vary. What I am getting is:

term 1 total
loan 1 amt
loan 2 amt

term 2 total
loan 1 amt
loan 2 amt
loan 3 amt

What I need is:

term 1 term 2 total
loan 1 amt loan 1 amt
loan 2 amt loan 2 amt
loan 3 amt

What am I doing wrong here? I also attached a screenshot of what is pulling into my report. I appreciate any help!

RE: Cross tab not joining columns

Didn't look at your attachment, but from what you describe, you have put the crosstab in a term group header section. Instead, put it in the report footer and suppress the detail section and other sections, if you only want the crosstab to display.


RE: Cross tab not joining columns

Yes I had it in a header. When I put it in the footer nothing displays. I can't hide all the other sections because they contain data. This is being inserted into a letter to a student advising them what they have been awarded in aid and loans.

RE: Cross tab not joining columns

Are you sure you placed it in the report footer? And that the report footer is not suppressed? You don't have to suppress other sections, I just thought you didn't have other data to display, and would not want a lot of blank lines.


RE: Cross tab not joining columns

You are right, I was in a group footer not the report footer. Thank you so much! I've been pulling my hair out with this trying to figure it out. Such a simple fix! smile
