Hi Guys,

Anyone know how about creating a List Report like the List Object in Cognos?

Like for example, I wish to have different years of Profit and Loss in three columns for analysis purposes.

You can create data item with if or case statements.
for example,
if ([year] = 2012) then ([Profit]) else (null)
do the same for each year 2011, 2010 etc...
You may have to use cast to match datatype and filter for null afterwards.

Hi mlmcc, crosstab is rigid in designing, many requests cannot be fulfill, that's why I am looking into list objects. Even when using Cognos, I seldom use Cross-tab unless it's quite a simple relationship. List object is always the best to tailor to special needs. Especially when it comes to formatting the report, Cross-tab is a pain.

Hi SNeupane,
What you suggested will be a pain to match them. What if I wish to write a 12 months rolling forecast + budgets with full year budget comparison for a Profit and Loss lol....

I was just looking for a yes or no answer. That means Crystal do not have something like List Object that I can do the same like Cognos.

Let's see if anyone else throw in their opinions, otherwise, I will segregate the points among you two.

Cheers.

Oh mlmcc, thank you for your warm offer to help. No lol. Because most of the masses marktet use Crystal report than to Cognos. As a matter of fact, it's simply uncomparable in prices, so I was thinking if Crystal can achieve like the list object would be a great thing to have. Cheers.
