Crystal Reports - Legend showing full database field description: "Max of CostSummaryChart.Hardware" - How do I concatinate?

When I generate a crystal report with a graph inside it I am showing the max values in the chart, the legend show the full description of the database field - I don't want this.

I want

"Max of CostSummaryChart.Hardware"

to look like


I've looked for an hour to find a setting for luck, any help?

Thanks, NateDizzle

its nothing  that is in the code, I'm using Crystal Reports 9.5 to format a report.  It must be a setting within the IDE, i couldn't find a "Crystal Reports" section of this website for the question.  If there is a better category please tell me.

Solved it, you change this setting in the previews pane.  Right click on the previewed chart caption and select "Edit Axis Label"...or something like that, then set the text to how you want it to look from then on.

I'm glad you solved it, but I dislike being given a 'C'. Check the grading polcies:

    Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

        * A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.
        * B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.
        * C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

    Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support. It's also true that a "C" is the lowest grade you can give, and the Experts know that -- so use it judiciously.

Whatever you say man.  I have not once looked at an experts credibility through grading, if they suggest something and it sounds good, I try it.  If it works I give them the points, which is essentially why you're in the game anyways.  I couldn't find a "close question" type button so I just awarded you the points, and obviously the comment given was worth a C, so I gave a C.

You're welcome for the points.
