Crystal Reports Line Chart

I am preparing a chart in Crystal Reports XI. This is a line chart, showing weekly sales for one year. I would like to change the time axis to display months, rather than the week.

If I use onChangeOf Week, I see all of the data points, but the labels for each week are too cluttered. If I use OnChangeOf Month, then I don't see the weekly data points.

Thanks,

Tom

Keep it weekly.  Rt-click on the chart and select Grid.  Select the Group tab and then click on the Labels tab.  Check Use Manual Number of groups and then enter a number - start with 3.  This will space out your labels so you keep the data points but don't have the labels for every week cluttering up the axis.

Thanks for your response Frodoman,

Just to clarify, I did not see the "Grid" option you mention in your response. In Preview mode, depending on where you right-click, (either an x-axis label or white space in the chart), I did see the "Group (x) Axis Options". When I select that option, there is a checkbox on the Layout tab called "Skip Group Labels", and a box where you can enter a number. I was able to get this to work, where now I can print a label every 4th week. This is closer to the requirement.

I was wondering if there is another way to display weekly data points, but monthly x axis labels.

Thanks,

Tom

Mlmcc,

I don't see any properties for major and minor labels. There are majjor and minor gridlines.

Can you be more specific

Thanks,

Tom

I don't use chart so it probably is the gridlines.  If you make the major the ones you want labeled then don't have a label n the minor you should get what you need.
