Hello everyone,
 
I am a newbie to Crystal Reports.  My question seems simple but I can't find a solution anywhere.  I am trying to implement Crystal Reports in ASP.NET 2.0.  The report is displayed after user select a value from a parameter field, i.e. account = "windows".  All users with "windows" account are displayed.  Also, I want to display the number of records found too.  Basically, the number of users who have "windows" account.  Can anyone give me some pointers?
 
Thanks

Hi btran,
 
I don't know about ASP.NET, so this answer might not work for you, but from a Crystal Reports viewpoint the following should work.
 
What you want to do is "Insert" a "Grand Total..." object into your report.  You can do this by clicking on "Insert" and selecting the "Grand Total" option.  In the pop-up that appears, select a data field that is in the Detail Section of your report (ie. Name, Account) and choose the "Count" summary option.
 
I hope that this what you were looking for.
 
Regards,
 
When you click on "OK" it'll place your counter in the Report Footer Section of your report.

jrw,
 
Thank you for your reply.  However, I can't seem to find "Insert" a "Grand Total" anywhere.  I see only "Insert" -> "Summary" & "Running Total".  I tried to insert summary with Accounts Count in different groups but it only returns grand total of a group not the number of users with a particular account.  What am I doing wrong?  Why can't I "Insert" a "Grand Total"?

btran,

 

In the Crystal Reports design screen try right-clicking on the “User Name” in your Detail Section.  The list that appears should include the “Insert Grand Total…” option.

 

Left-click on that, and then select “count” as your calculation method.  After you click on “OK” a new object should appear in your “Report Footer Section” that says something like “Count of User Name”.

 

By the way, are you using a stand-alone version of Crystal Reports or the .Net version in Visual Studio.Net?  And which version is it?

 

Let me know if this helps.

 

Regards,

jrw,
 
I am using VS2005 Crystal Reports.  It doesn't allow me to insert grand total but I can use running total.  It's not exactly what I want but I am satisfied.  Thank you for your support.
