Hello Group,

I've got a problem with a chart I've made in crystal reports that is downright peciular. A little background: I'm using Cyrstal reports 2008 Sp5 (12.5) As my report writing software. I've written a fairly straight forward query that retrieves the values of actuals, budget plan and cost plan values by month. I've fed that query into a custom command.

The command returns a month value and then 2 separate values for each month

 Something like that, When I have Crystal create the graph, I tell it to use the Line Type, for data I told it to show the values and change on the date value.

Then I went into the preview of the chart and changed the legend labels and the axis labels.

So it looks like this

However when I run the report in Clarity It reverts all the labels.

I've seen a couple of online articles that indicate I should modify the labels in the preview mode and then back in the regular mode right click and select something about "apply to all" Unfortunately I simply don't have anything like that on my right click menu so I'm at a loss.

Does Anyone have any experience with this?
