Hello all,

If I have a field called Part, and the choices are:

Car - door (5 Work Items)
Car - seat (5 WIs)
Car - tire (5 WIs)
Truck - door (5 WIs)
Truck - tire (5 WIs)
Truck - seat (5 WIs)

and I want to create a report that shows:

                       High                Medium              Low            Total
Car                   3                        4                      8                15
Truck                2                        8                      5                15
Total                 5                       12                    13               30

Can I do this in 602 (I'll settle for 604 as we may soon upgrade). I can do a dashboard widget with each, but combining and separating the values seems to take it to Report Builder.

thanks for any assistance

Does this post give you an idea?

Basically you map an existing value to a different one. For example, all values starting with "Car" will be mapped to "Car".

It looks like you're trying to build a crosstab, which isn't supported in Report Builder.   Add your vote here:  https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Jazz%20Reporting%20Service#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=370803
