cross tab formatting

cross tab formatting

I have very simple cross tab as follows where I have:
supressed the Total header and lines
but want to show the 2nd summary row text and amount in red font

there will only ever be 2 rows of data as below example

Non - restricted 100,000,000
restricted 5,000,000 ---> put all this in red

Tried to normal method of font control but cant seem to get it working on this crosstab

RE: cross tab formatting

Please explain the crosstab setup. Identify the row field, the column field if any, and the summary fields. I am unsure whether the restricted/non-restricted are two instances of your row field or two separate summaries displayed horizontally and labeled.


RE: cross tab formatting

Row field is "ShortName" - this will output either Restricted or Non-Restricted
No column field
Summary field is "Amount"

As say its a very simple crosstab

I want it to show this type of example:

Non-Restricted 10,0000,000.00
Restricted 5,000,000.00 -- with this amount and text in red

RE: cross tab formatting


No worries I have found how to do this using Highlighting Expert button - something I have never used in 20 years of using Crystal, Ive always used field format and then used X-2 button to place restrictions. Always something new to learn hiden away even though its in full view!
