Two cross tabs in a report

Dear colleagues,

I am new on Crystal Reports, and I am trying to build a small report with 2 cross-tabs.

Each cross-tab is filled its own Excel sheet (and its own dimensions).

But when I try to configure the second cross tab, it seems that it is linked to the first one... The figures of this second cross-tab are inconsistent and those of the first cross tab are changing...

My purpose is to create to seperate cross-tabes, with no link.

When I go to the database expert > links, there are no links between the two sheets (all deleted).

Did I miss something in my custo ?

Thanks for your help,

Rgds,

Thibaud

    Collet,

    You should probably either read or watch a tutorial first on Crosstabs so your questions are more specific.

    Try this:

    You should also make sure your crosstabs are in different sections.

    If the data for the two cross tabs are unrelated, use a subreport for the second cross tab and insert that into the main report holding the first cross tab.

    Do not link the subreport dta to the main report data

      Its the way Crystal works, if you have two datasets in the same report Crystal will try to relate them.

      Its not like MS Reporting Services which does allow you to do that.

      The Subreport route is the only solution for your requirement.
