Crystal Reports in the Real World—Advanced Cross-Tabs

Although a single Cross-Tab that covers all the data in a report can be quite useful, with some large datasets it can be quite unreadable. A simple solution to this is to group the report and place the cross-tab in the group header or footer. Cross-tabs are context sensitive and if placed in a group header or footer will show only data for that group.

Using the skills described in earlier chapters, create a new report from the Xtreme Sample Database. Add the Customer table to the report, group the report by country, and remove all fields but the Country field in the group header. See Figure 10.15 for a visual of the report's starting point.
