Crystal Report 11 -- Cross Tab formatting

I have a cross-tab with a text box on top of it, (I kinda made it fuse with the cross tab, see attachment). Is that possible to make that text box grow or shrink based on the cross tab. Since the text box is a static one, if the cross tab goes bigger or smaller the text box is not in sync with cross tab. Any thoughts?
Thanks

You could try the text box property "Extend to bottom of section when printing". One concern, however, is that while a text box can grow vertically, it can't grow horizontally (at least on the same page).  So, if your crosstab grows in width, the box won't grow with it.

The text box is like a column heading of the cross-tab. In my example I have dates, I want to label the dates as "Salary by year" on  top of those columns..
