How to create and add a calculated column in a crosstab

Hi All,

I need to be able to create a crosstab that looks like following:

Employee Activity Productive Activity Productive Activity Productive

Name Name Hours Name Hours Name Hours

Charts Check-In Check-Out

John Doe 100 2 200 1 300 3

Jane Doe 50 1 100 0.5 200 2

As seen above, The cross tab should have Activities listed in the Columns section and the Employee Name in the Rows section. The second column for Productive Hours will be a division of the No. of Units per Activity / Standard per hour for each activity.

The standards for each activity will be pre-defined. e.g. Charts activity will have a standards of 50 units per hour, Check-in Activity will have 200 units per hour and Check-out activity will have 100 units per hour.

Hence based on the above standards when the employee John Doe has completed 100 units of Charts his Productive Hours will be:


No. of Units per Activity / Standard per hour = 100 / 5 = 2 hours as indicated in the above cross tab.

Will it be possible to build this logic in a cross-tab report? Any help is highly appreciated.

    Hi Nimish,

    Would you be able to send me a data sample or the actual .rpt file with saved data?

    The crosstab would have the Activities listed as the first column and not the way you've listed it above.

    Each Activity would have Activity and Productive as the two columns below it.
