1984462 - Tips on developing reports that have vertical and horizontal lines

Symptom

  • Crystal Reports does not have a dedicated Table tool for table creation.
  • Tables must be created manually by drawing lines and boxes around report items.
  • Such tables often end up with many issues:
    • Horizontal lines which don’t meet up with verticals.
    • Spacing within rows which is varying.
    • Vertical lines that run directly through database fields.
    • Inexplicable gaps between lines.
    • Vertical and horizontal lines that go missing.
    • And more...

Environment

  • SAP Crystal Reports 2008, 2011, 2013
