I'm assuming you're in Cognos 8.  IN Cognos 8, List reports are represented directly from the data, but Crosstabs are represented from a in-memory dimensional cube, which is populated from the data.  IN theory, this allows for much more complex crosstab reporting, but if the model and report aren't designed carefully, it's easy to confuse the system into applying filters and calculations in the "wrong" place (giving invalid results).
