I have a crystal report chart that I am attempting to show the percentatage as a data label and the amount formated as $1,000,000.00 in the legend.  I can show the amount in the legend, but the if i format it as I need, the data label changes to that format. How can I format both?

I applogize, but this does not address my issue. My issue is that I can only show a percent or currency amount in both the data label and legend. If I format the data label as an percentage, then I lose all formating in the legend. If I format the legend as currency, then the data labels are formated as currency. I need to format the data label as an percentage and currency in the legend.

You might want to check out the 3rd party add-on tool CRChart. It has much better support for this kind of stuff.
