Cell padding in a CrossTable


Hello everybody,

I'm searching for a good method to illustrate cell padding in a crossTable. In Crystal Reports there is the function "show cell margins".

If this option is activated, there is a gap between the data fields and the margin of the cells. Because of the gap it is impossible to colour the whole cell by a condition.

If the option is not activated theres is no gap between the cells and the margin. This results in a really crimped cross table layout.

So, what I need is the following...


A conditional format of the cross table cell background, depending on the value of the data field in that cell


The possibility to set a text indention for number cells

Does anybody know if these functions exist?

What's the alternatives?

Thanks for helping me... 😊
