Using Cystal XI. Is there a way to add row numbers to a crosstab report through Crystal?

So that this:

Ptr A
Ptr B
Ptr C

Ends up like this:

1    Ptr A
2    Ptr B
3    Ptr C

I just need it to be the first column in the report, not a summary or anything.

Not without building the crosstab manually. Then you can use a running total to store the number.

Crosstab formats are very limited. Whilst there may be a method of getting this counter in there in Crystal 2008, it still couldn't be the first column.

What is the nature of the columns of the crosstab? Could it be done manually instead?

It's for a customer who wants this in a very specific way. I've already had to convince them to change a lot because of limitations with the crosstabs and was hoping that I could at least get this. I will try doing it programatically and see how that goes.

Thanks,

It would be possible in CR2008

Is the functionality for crosstabs and charts enhanced in CR2008?

For cross tabs it is.  You can add your own calculated fields to it.

I don't know about charts.

You still can't put the calculated field to the very left of the crosstab, you can only put it within the crosstab body.

Thanks PCIan.  I haven't used the feature or even read up on it much since I am still mainly using CR XI.
