In the report example posted on 09/26/11 06:33 PM, ID: 36656043  , I can't figure out how you got the "columngroup" in the cross tab to show the headers. COQ-test-crosstab.rpt

If you right mouse click on the @columngroup  field in the crosstab -> format field -> common tab -> display string this contains the headings

"    Frame             Glass            CSI             Total " & chr(13) &
"   Revenue         Revenue     Revenue   Revenue"

Not sure why it's been done this way you could just have this as the formula for @columngroup

Mainly because I was thinking about the display string and didn't think about just changing the formula

Another way of doing this would have been remove @columngroup from the crosstab and on teh customise style screen select 'Show labels' thsi then adds a text label for each summarised field which you can then edit with the necessary column title.

I tried removing the field and checking the box and the cross tab didn't show anything.  It needs a column to be able to show the data.
You can suppress the column group and it does show the headings.

You also need to uncheck 'Suppress row grand totals' on the customise style tab

You must have missed my earlier post #36717891

"You also need to uncheck 'Suppress row grand totals' on the customise style tab "

I'm using CR XI R2 but I've been using this method for many years in previous versions.

Thanks.  I missed the comment on unchecking the total suppression.  
What is shown is the row totals and not the columns

Reports I have built never lent themselves to cross tab except to create charts so I never really played with the options and features.
