How would I create a trend report in Crystal Reports?

Last Modified: 2018-02-08
I would like to create a report (or ultimately a dashboard) that looks at a particular value (a status for a particular record (e.g. "new", "in process", "completed")).  There is no data of the status at any particular time so all I can query is how many records are in each status at any given snapshot in time, but I would like to know where we stand and how these are changing over time.  Is there a way to automatically run the report (e.g. daily) and have all of the prior results be part of the most current report?

I hope I explained this well.

Thank you,
