What do you mean all the values are NULL?

Do they records exist for that column?

There is a REPORT OPTION to USE DEFAULT FOR NULL

You could also use
If IsNull({TheField}) then
    0
else
    {TheFIeld}

Use that in the cross tab rather than the field

Maybe it is zeros. At Cross-Tab Expert window, the Summarized Fields is Distictcount of tablename.id. My cross-tab should be 3 rows and 5 columns. But one column will disapear if the values are all 0. Crystal Report changes my columns to 4. I want to have 5 and can put 0 in that column. Thank you so much.

Then you need to have data for the column or you will need to build the cross tab manually.
