conflict in creating a group by function in mock up tab


I am generating a mockup tab(crosstab in crystal reports XIR2).

scenarios#There are 3 developers(example: phani, ram , robert, etc) in my project those who report to my manager.

I need to develop a report to show the total number of crystal reports developed by monthly by each person for the current year and the previous year.

In the below screen shot , i developed the person "phani" count for the present and the previous year.

However, I need to repeat the same mock up tab for the remaining persons (ram, Robert etc.) in the same report.

My problem is that technically I can generate mock up tab for one person in the crystal report, but i don't know, how to generate entire people (phani, ram, robert etc) mock up tab in the one report.

    Make sure that your Group1 is on the person who develops the reports. You can configure the group to be "In Specified Order" so that you include the three people who develop reports and then an additional entry for "All Others". You would then format the mock tab using additional groups inside that Group1.

    Hi Phani,

    In your sample mock tab you are showing like :

    2013 Total

    2013 Total - Phani

    2014 Total

    2014 Total - Phani


    2013 Total

    2013 Total - Robert

    2014 Total

    2014 Total - Robert


    Is that you want to print '2013 total & 2014 total ' (without developer name) in each block ? If so, you need to create sub report for each person and insert in your main report footer.


    If you want to print like :

    2013 Total - Phani 5

    2014 Total - Phani 2

    Total Phani 7

    2013 Total - Robert 2

    2014 Total - Robert 3

    Total Robert 7


    Then you need to insert a group on person name and insert summary. If you don't have person name field then you may have to extract from '2013 Total - Phani' field by writing a formula.

      Your suggestion is like a static subreports (group by person name) inserted into the main report. But the number of persons may vary for each year and the reports needs to be dynamic

      table= table;{phani, ram , robert,... n persons}

      The number of persons may vary# The number of persons may vary and i need each person report
