Crystal Reports: Cross Tab Reports without summarized detail

In Crystal Reports (v11), I would like to create a cross-tab report.  When I go into the cross-tab expert and I can add my rows, columns, and summarized fields just fine.  My main question is there anyway to not summarize the field that is in the summarized field box?

For instance, lets say I have a table that shows the following fields with the following values:
 
AcctNum      Question      Response         
123456      A      3         
123456      B      5         
123456      C      1         
789012      A      2         
789012      B      0         
789012      C      4         
345678      A      3         
345678      B      1         
345678      C      4       


Can I take that table and create a cross-tab report that looks like this?
 
AcctNum      A      B      C         
123456      3      5      1         
789012      2      0      4         
345678      3      1      4       


When I use the cross-tab expert I just get the option to summarize the field (such as count, min, max, mode, avg, etc).  Do you have any suggestions so I can have the response field not summarized?  I'd appreciate any advice you could provide.

I've heard of creating a manual cross-tab.  I'm very new to using Crystal and if this is the only way, then could someone please explain that for me? Or is the only way to get the data the way I want to see it by changing my stored SQL procedure?

Thanks!

I too am no master with Crystal, but as long as you have only one A, one B and one C against each AcctNum could you not drop them in a cross tab and just use the Max function? That "Max" would then only be applied against a single record anyway, returning what you was looking for?

I tried it, and it worked with the data provided, although appreciate this might be simplified data..

That makes sense and that should work.  Thanks!

I do have one more question.  Lets say that I want to add one more field called "Date".  The "Date" field would be unique just like the account number and I would want to show it at the end.  For instance, I would like to see the final output look like this:

AcctNum      A      B      C     Date      
123456         3      5      1      10/1/08    
789012         2      0      4      10/2/08  
345678         3      1      4      10/2/08

I don't think that will go in a cross tab anymore, and if it will its beyond my ability to produce.
Suspect you are now looking at multiple groups and a few formulas.

You can attach a file containing what you can have and I might get a chance to have a muck about, or you can see what a true expert says.

Best of luck sir!
