Having last 3 years in my crosstab even if no data

I am having sales values based on Customer Hierarchy and these sales values are shown by last 3 YEARs (YEAR is string in my database). Please note that data will be always for last 3 years (so no filter required in Crystal 2011 Designer). I want to see performance of current year to last year, last year to previous last year. For this, I created 2 calculated members rows in cross tab.

It works perfectly if I have last 3 years data (2010,2011,2012) for any of my Products. If no product was sold in any of last 3 years for particular customer, then my caculated rows in cross tab do not work.

Solution I want is that even if there is no data for any of year I always display last 3 years so that my formulas in calculated rows and rows header keep working. Year is my string field (YYYY).

Please advise how I can achieve it with details solution as I am not very expert in coding. I have attached complete example in attached MS Word (97-2000) file.

If not possible, then advise how I revise my formulas in calculated rows header/ values to overcome this.

Many thanks.
