Multi columns in a group

Hi all,

I am having trouble getting data that is grouped the way i need it.

I know crystal groups very well and i can do it that way but my

report needs to have two columns.

Is there a way to do this or do i need to press on and figure

out how to group before I call Crystal?

thanks

Timalaugh

    Hi Tim, I am not sure I am clear about what you are trying to accomplish, however, if you have CRXI,

    this is what I would do.

    Right click the details section and go to section expert

    Click where it says... Format with multiple columns

    at the top right of the expert, you should now see an extra tab that says Layout

    Click on the layout tab.

    Check format groups with mulitple columns.

    Set detail width, gap, etc as needed,

    also printing direction. Across then down will most likely be what you want.

    By adjusting the width, gap, page margins, etc, you can control how many columns show up.

    • Hi,

      Yes, 'Format with multiple columns' is not available with Group Sections.

      So, if you wish to use this option with the detail section, you need to make sure the data is grouped before it comes into Crystal Reports.

      Or, you can even use sub-reports, however I wouldn't prefer that way, as it is an overhead to the database and it is not needed when you can simply write a SQL.

    Thanks.
