Crosstab numbering issue

Morning all,

I am using Crosstab in my report, the problem I am getting is that when there is no data against the column, crosstab does not show that number.

For example

Days - 1 2 3 5

Jobs - 1 2 3 6

Here in the above example the Day 4 did not have any data, i.e. 0 number of jobs went through, the crosstab is missing the 4th day.

How can I make crosstab to show all the number of days regardless of number of jobs?

Any ideas

Regards

Jehanzeb

    Hi Jehanzeb,

    Please try the following:

    Goto File-> Report Options-> Check the two options

    1.Convert Database NULL values to Default

    2.Convert Other NULL values to Default

    Click OK and refresh the report.

    Hope this helps you!

      Any ideas how to do a manual crosstab?

      I think that is the only way to get around this issue.

      Regardless of number of jobs, the total number of days from 0 to 10+ should show up. I think that is what Crosstab cannot do.

      and I don't know how to create a manual crosstab column wise.

      Any ideas?

      Regards

      I just ran the report without any data i.e. any record except Number of days. When I ran the report using the date range and Account number, it showed me number of days

      Days = 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 9 - 10+

      So this means that the number of days are getting filtered by the entry I put into the parameters and that reflect into the crosstab.

      I tried using a manual Mock Crosstab but no luck it still doesn't show the missing number of days.Additionally it shows the data by Row and I want it by column.

      Unless I fake the days by using a text object it won't display all days, however you can't really fake days in crosstab can you?

      I think I am stuck with this because the when there is no date entry against a record how can it be shown?

      Regards

    Hi J,

    Go in Cross Tab Expert--Customize Style tab- and uncheck Suppress Empty Rows and Suppress Empty Columns
