Waterfall Diagram with Crystal Reports

Former Member

Dear Xperts ; )

at the moment we face a problem with creating waterfall diagrams in Crystal Reports based on BEx Queries.

They work very nice with positive values, but not with the negative ones.

Does anyone have experience creating waterfall diagrams?

And btw is it possible to create them also showing negative values?

We found some tools for xcelsius, but not for crystal reports. But we have no xcelsius here at this customer.

I would be very thankful for any hints and tipps.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Benjamin,

Water fall charts are not yet supported with crystal reports.

Please have a look to BusinessObjects note # 1264351 - Waterfall chart in Crystal Reports XI (R2 and 3.0)

For your reference i have paste the content of note:


Are Waterfall charts supported in Crystal Reports XI R2 and 3.0?

Reproducing the Issue

Applies to any Crystal Reports version in XI R2 and Crystal Reports 2008

Create or open a Crystal Report in the designer

Insert a chart and try to find the chart type 'Waterfall'

This type cannot be found

Closest type is Stacked bar chart


Waterfall chart type is not yet supported by Crystal reports.


Enhancement Request has been logged: ADAPT01087191

I have checked the status of Adapt its not resolved.

Hi Shweta,

thanks for that answer, i found that note too, but it helps me not.

We allready found a way to create waterfall diagrams with Crystal Reports, but not for negative values.

That is why I asked if someone knew a solution for that.

We are on it. My collegue created everything in Excel and creates it now in BEx Query Designer.

We hope this will work then with CR.
