Hi,

I have a report with a crosstab on it, as attached below;

Basically, the crosstab is giving the area name, and the number of litres and the number of records for the date specified.

It looks like this at the moment:

                             2012/01/01
AreaName             123
                               221

Now, what I want, is to make it look like this:

                                  2012/01/01
AreaName                 Litres                   123
                                  No of Records      221

Any ideas on how I can add those labels in there?

In the crosstab expert click 'Show Labels' in the Customize Style tab.

Thanks.  But the fields are calculations, so, it's giving me a label of @CountFuelID.  Can I customise this label to something else?

Try this

Right click the label
Click FORMAT FIELD
Click the COMMON TAB
Click the FORMULA button to the right of DISPLAY STRING
Enter the text you want

But there is no option called "Display String" on the common tab.  When I right click on the field, the option is FORMAT TEXT, not Format Field.

Ok, I seemed to get it working but right-clicking and selecting "Edit Text". Now, I need this to be exported to Excel, and look legible, but at the moment, it is creating rather large columns on Excel  See attached.  Can you help?

WHat options did you choose when you exported?

Without saved data we really can't try ideas to see if they will work.
