formula names in chart legends

Dear experts,

I use a chart with formulas. Now the names of the formulas are displayed in the chart legend as "@formulaname". I see no way to change this. Even if I rename the formula, the "@" would remain.

F1-Help says "Label aliasing and legend entry aliasing on charts is not supported by this version of Crystal Reports." (SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise)

Do I realy have to paint my own legend?

thank you

    Hi Phil,

    Yes, we cannot change the Legend labels in Crystal Reports 4 Enterprise; I'm on version SP02 by the way.

    I know we can change the labels in Crystal Reports designer, however you might have to wait to see if this works in 4.1.

    found something interesting on idea's place for next version of CR

    "The current workaround is to use a second chart that is modified in such a way that the legend of the second chart fits what you want to have as a legend for the first chart."
