Crosstab- need a distinct count for each row

I have a crosstab listing each product number as row and each "selected" store as column. Summary is the # sold for each item/store.  I need to do a distinct count of the stores selling each item and put it in the Total column only.  I can do this for each column, and it works quite well.  I cannot figure out how to place this in the Total column only.  I tried an embedded summary, and this gives me a column with each line the entire count of stores.  

Is there a way to do this?

I don't think you can do that in the cross tab.

If you're getting the grand totals that you want, and the problem is simply that you don't want to see the subtotals in the columns, you could try making the field as small as possible and suppressing it.

I have tried suppressing the column, as James0628 suggested, which works for printing or viewing, but the request is to be able to export this to Excel, and then there will be an empty column in the spreadsheet, which the users do not want.

You know, I thought of the Excel thing, but you didn't mention exporting, so I was hoping that that wouldn't be an issue.

 I don't know if there's any other way to do that.  In the past, CR cross-tabs were pretty rigid, and I haven't used the newer versions that give you some additional capabilities.  The only other thing I thought of was actually putting a second cross-tab (with a single column with a total) beside the first one, but even if you could get that looking OK, including working out the spacing due to the variable number of columns in the first cross-tab (the simplest thing would probably be to put the new cross-tab on the left), then you'd probably have more issues with the export.
