1215558 - How to create a chart based on a print-time or WhilePrintingRecords() formula in Crystal Reports

Symptom

How do I create a chart based on a print-time or WhilePrintingRecords() formula in Crystal Reports 9 and later?

Resolution

In Crystal Reports 9 and later, a chart cannot be created from a print-time or WhilePrintingRecords() formula. However, there is a procedure that passes the print-time formulas from the main report to a subreport. It then creates the chart in the subreport.

The procedure consists of

  • formatting the report
  • creating running total formulas for the On change of and Show value(s) values
  • creating and linking a subreport
  • inserting a chart in the subreport.

This procedure is fully explained in the technical paper - Charting on Print Time Formulas.
