Limitations on Particular Fields

Limitations on Particular Fields

Limitations on Particular Fields

(OP)
Hi.  I am reasonably new to CR.  I have a report where I will need to have the days down the side of the report and then I will have many different types of columns.  

For example, one of the columns might be Actual, but this column is not in the database.  It needs to be computed by taking (Estimate - Imbalance).  The problem is that the data is all in one table under a field called "Value".  The data is described as Estimate and Imbalance in a different table.

At this point I have grouped the report by day, which should give me the values for each day.  Now I need to figure out how to get the Actual.  

Can anyone help me out.  If you need more information, please let me know.

RE: Limitations on Particular Fields

Write a formula that says:

If value = "Estimate"
then {Amount}
else - {Amount}


Then do a subtotal of this column.

What you gave me works great for a list, but I need to get more specific.  

What if I want the day down the side and the hour across the top.  I still need these values, but I need to have them all in one cross-tab.  CR will not allow me to put this subtotal cross tab in the detail section.  When I have it in the group section it is returning multiple cross tabs by the group.

RE: Limitations on Particular Fields

Put it in the Report header  and you will get one cross-tab summarizing the entire report.
