1522021 - Change time scaling axis in crystal reports charts to hours, minutes or seconds


Does crystal reports allow to scale time graphics on other time units smaller than day, year or month ?


  • Crystal Reports 2008

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a crystal reports
  2. Create a time graphic in the report where data are based on units smaller than day, month or year, for instance chose minutes as unit
  3. Refresh the report to build the graphic.
  4. Notice that in time axis values smaller than days, months or years are not marked in the axis.


This functionality does not currently exist in the product. In facts, crystal report support only basic time unit such as day, year or months, any smaller value than these will not be set in the time axis.
