Cross Tab One Field



I am attempting to use the cross tab node on one field, but the header and data cannot be the same error appears.  


Is there anyway to get a result that looks like






And cross tab it into fields without adding another field in the cross tab node, so the output looks like.


Value1   Value2   Value3

One approach: you could try to add a formula with a constant value (e.g. field name = "unused" value is a constant "1")... then use that as the Grouping Field and the Header Filed in the crosstab... that will get you a comma separated list of your values; then use the "Text to Columns" tool to split these into columns.

I believe there are sevel approaches to do so but obviously not only with one "cross tab" tool.

I added a recordID at the beginning and then used dynamic rename at the end to make it the only row (that's the field name)

if you want it to be a row of entry then you need to give it a field name (i.e. the recordID)

I attached a sample for your reference. Hope it helps. :)
