Crystal Reports

I Created a crystal report that have varying field data. I am trying to create a cross tap chart for the initial 100 field data entries that would include a Std Dev and mean. I tried to do that using select expert data but it would only show the slected data and not the whole data. my questions are:

1. can I create a formula that shows the initial 100 data entries, and still show the whole data.

2. is it possible to create the cross tab chart right after the initial 100 data entries in the print report and let the rest of entries continue right after the cross tab .

    Assuming that by "data entries" you mean rows of data, try this:

    1. Create a formula that looks something like this:

    {@RowGroup}
    if RecordNumber <= 100 then 0 else 1

    2. Use this formula as a group for the report.

    3. In this group footer place a subreport that will display only the first 100 rows in a cross-tab.

    4. Right-click on the subreport and select "Format Subreport...". On the Common tab, click on the formula button to the right of the Suppress checkbox and enter the following (DO NOT check the checkbox!)

    {@RowGroup} > 0

    5. In the Section Expert, use this same formula to suppress the group footer section where the subreport is located.

    This should give you the cross-tab after the first 100 records and before the rest of the data.

    • It did not work. I have tried numerus formulas and ways and whenever I think I got close enough it will not work. The closest was showings either 0s,1s, blanks after 100 data entries, or it will start at 100 and not show from where I wanted the data to start, and it will always shows blanks. I talked to the lead programmer and hopefully we will try to make it as a field from Microsoft server server and not from Crystal Reports.

      Thanx for your hints and help,

      if someone have a suggestion I will try and give feed back.
