I have a text field in sql table that may or may not have a value (if not it would be NULL) and I have a report that shows the content of that field in Group 1. What I need now is a way to show all of the distinct values that were found and also show a count of how many of each one were found at the end of the group report. I am running Crystal reports 11.5. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried a cross tab?

Click INSERT  --> CROSS TAB
Drag into the report footer
Right click the Cross Tab in the upper left corner
Click CROSS TAB EXPERT
Rows - FIeld you want
Summarized field - Field you want  - make sure it says COUNT
Click OK
