Summarize a Group Summary field


Post Author: Mariano42

CA Forum: General


I am using Crystal XI, and can not seem to figure out something that doesn't seem like it should be that hard.

I have a report with two groups, a date group and a project group. For example the first group would be 7/1/2008, then it would have subgroups to show all the activity at a Project that starts in July of 2008. The group footer for the Project group should have a summary field for the average of hours of all the tasks for that month for that project. The group footer for the Date group should have the sum of those averages. I can not figure out how to create a summary field in the Date Group footer that will summarize the summary field in the Project Group. I need to create a Chart that shows the Date footer as the X axis and the number of hours as the Y axis. I hope this makes sense, thanks!

Here is how the Report should look:


Project 1

Task 1: 40 hours

Task 2: 10 Hours

Average: 25 hours

Project 2

Task 1: 20 hours

Task 2: 20 Hours

Average: 20 Hours

Sum for 7/1/2008: 45 Hours
