CrossTab with No Data




I'm trying to solve an issue - I'm building a workflow that generates 12k individual sheets with information about airfields - my workflow works great with the majority of the inputs, but in cases where there is no data reaching a crosstab  / transpose, all future calculations error out, and I can't union the data together.  Ideally, the end of the crosstab I'd like to just have an output with a single column name and no data, so I can just union it together.  But it seems that each time I make a fix for cases where there's no incoming data, it messes up the rest.  

I tried the 'ensure data' with CREW macros, but unless I'm missing something, it won't keep a column when there's no data. 


Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe try this:

Text input a dummy record
Union it with the cross tab output, keep it as first record in the configuration.
Sample and skip the first record.

Chaos reigns within. Repent, reflect and reboot. Order shall return.

@MarqueeCrew  Thank you!  Got it working with that as the solution.
