It usually represents the joint distribution of two or more variables in compact row and column format. In business intelligence, engineering, survey and scientific research, the crosstab is widely used. A common term for a crosstab is a pivot table.
Logi JReport also supports a unique compound crosstab that allows you to put multiple crosstabs together in a very flexible structure. This makes far more sophisticated crosstab analysis possible. However compound crosstabs are supported only in page reports that are created using query resources.
The following topics discuss crosstabs in further detail:
