Cross-Tab export to excel


I have a problem exporting crosstab to excel format from ASP page as sell as from crystal IDE.

To be more specific the content if crosstab itself exports successfully,

but i do have header titles above the crosstab I add in report design.

These headers look great in crystal viewer and in PDF format export, but when exported to excel these headers goes below the crosstab content.

to finalize the question:

Is there any way to keep custom headers to crtosstab and see them in excel export ?

We are using RDC component of crystal 10 (CRAXDRT.dll) in ASP pages.

    Hi Daniel,

    As you likely aware 10 is past it's end of life. Crosstabs had limited functionality, still does.

    The easiest way to get the format you want is to create your reprot manually so it looks like a cross tab but it's not. In other words don't use the cross tab wizard.

    THank you

      Believe if i could i would replace the crystal reports 10 with a newer version 😊

      I am drawing the crosstab header manually and it works really well in when rendered to HTML and when exported to PDF, only excel meses the header.

    If applying all patches for CR 10 doesn't resolve the issue then only option is to upgrade and use the trial version to confirm the issue is resolved.
