1694341 - Crystal Reports does not draw Grid lines between multiple summary values in a Crosstab


Grid Lines do not appear between multiple summary values in a Crosstab


  • Crystal Reports 2008
  • Crystal Reports 2011

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a report using Crystal Reports
  2. Add a Crosstab object with one field in 'Columns' and multiple fields in 'Summarized Fields'
  3. Click on OK and preview the report.
  4. The report would look like as follows, where the highlighted area reflects the multiple summary values.




This behavior of Crosstab is by design.


  1. Once the Report is previewed go to insert menu >> select line object.
  2. Draw lines in between the number of summary values, which are populated in the columns.
  3. Note: This workaround will work only if the Crosstab is static i.e. the number of columns should be known in advance.
