record inflation!!!

Morning Guys,

I have created a crosstab in my report footer and for some reason when the formula calculates the records it displays those records which are filtered. i.e. those records which doesn't need to be on the report.

According to someone in another forum he suggested that I should create a manual cross tab because I have a record inflation going on in my crosstab.

I don't get it, what is this record inflation and how can I cure this problem.

Any ideas?

My report displayed (Initially)

Total - 102 jobs

Cancelled - 1

Number of Days - Number of Jobs - Percentage

0 102 100%

1 54

2 12

3 23

......

Total 102 100%

The report counts all the records and puts it into the Day 0.

I fixed the issue by using formula to count number of records however, that didn't work out either.

Now my report displays

Total - 102 jobs

Cancelled - 1

Number of Days - Number of Jobs - Percentage

0 1 100%

1 54

2 12

3 23

......

Total 102 100%

How can I fix the above issue? please help!!!

Many thanks

Kind Regards

Jehanzeb

    Hi Jehanzeb

    How are you calculating the records? Try using a manual running total in the cross tab for calculating the records. For help on this search for the Note 6362411.

    A bit more information, a manual Cross tab is nothing but a custom design created using text objects, that looks like a cross tab. For information on this search for Note c2008472.

    Hope it helps!!!
