Hey guys,

I'm curious how crosstabs work.

Just a follow up to my previous question about "crosstabs".  Do "crosstabs" use the query from the main report, as opposed to subreports that are built off their own seperate queries?

The cross tab uses the query for the report it is in.

It can then be filtered based on where it is.
If it is in the report header or footer, it uses all the data for the report
If it is in a group header or footer, it is limited to the data for that group
