I am using a cross tab in a reports as follows.

Column (datefield) by day
Rows - resourcename
Summarized fields - this is a count

The report looks something like the following

                      12/05/2009    11/05/2009    10/05/2009       Total
Mark Smith           3                       2                     2                 7
Mark Jones           23                     3                     9               35
Mark Cross            1                      1                     46             48

I now need to sort the crosstab, not by the total column but always be the first column, which contains
the previous days data, the reult would be

                      12/05/2009    11/05/2009    10/05/2009       Total
Mark Jones           23                     3                     9               35
Mark Smith           3                       2                     2                 7
Mark Cross            1                      1                     46             48

I am using Crystal Reports XI

Does anybody know how this can be done?

Thanks

Yes it is.

Add a formula to the report
If ({DateField} = CurrentDate-1) then
    {AmountField}
else
    0

Add a group to the report on the NameField

Put the formula in the detail section
Right click the formula field
Click INSERT --> SUMMARY
Make it a sum
Put it in the group footer

Right click a row label in the crosstab
Click ROW OPTIONS --> ROW GROUP SORT OPTIONS
Set the dropdown to ALL
Choose the summary field
Set orfer to descending

If you want you can then delete the formula and the summary field from the report
You can delete the group header label
You can suppress the sectiions
