SQL OR CRYSTAL HELP

I'm trying to create a report that has a table that lists part numbers and a table that lists an attribute name and a third table that lists the attribute value.  There are up to 7 different attribute names but each part number usually has between zero and four attributes.  When I create a CR that shows the part number and the attribute name and value, a part that has four different attributes will show up four different times, one for each attribute.  I want to somehow display all attributes 1's in one column, 2's in a second column and so forth, with the part number listed only once.  The attributes have a UID (1-7) but they also have a name. Ultimately, I would like to create a new view for this as I seem to always need this info.  I'm not too familiar with SQL so don't really know how to do that.  How can I get this info all on one line in a report?

While I do not fully understand what you are trying to accomplish it would help the community if you share the sql you have created so far and maybe a screenshot of the report layout you have created.

My first thought was that you may benefit from a subreport to show the attributes for each part but then you mentioned to have all of the attributes on one line which I do not understand.

You need to use left join between the parts, attribute name and attribute value. This will create a view with all parts, attributes name and corresponding values (if any). Then use a Cross tab to place the parts and rows, attribute names as columns and attributes values as values

I can think of a few ways to do something like that in CR.  How many UID's can there be for a "part"?  Is there a set limit of 7, or could there be more?  If there could be more, and you're not sure how many, then you may need a more sophisticated solution (like a cross-tab, like vasto suggested).

 If there is a set limit, you could try something like this.

 Using your sample report, with 4 formulas for UID's 1 - 4.  Group the report on whatever identifies a "part" (lot and item_id?), and suppress the detail section.  Put lot, item_id and item_desc in the group header or footer (your choice).  Right-click on each of your formulas in the detail section (eg. @COO) and select Insert > Summary, and create a Maximum summary for the "part" group (not a grand total).  Put those summary fields in your group header or footer with the other fields.

 I think that should work.
