Let’s go into more detail about what we just did. First, we
added 2 fields to the rows “collection”. The first field that was added was
“Customers.ContactName”. For each contact name in the returned data set, a row
will be printed in the cross tab. The second field added was the
“Products.ProductName” field. By adding a second row to the collection, a “sub
row” will be inserted for each product that the customer ordered. The next
field that was added was the “Orders.OrderDate”, to the columns collection.
This field will print a column for each unique value. We will go more into
options for this group later in the article. The last field that was added was
the “Orders_Details.UnitPrice" to the Summarized Fields collection. This
collection is where your data is summarized.
After you have completed those steps you can preview the
cross tab, but this is not exactly what we may have expected to see.
