Crystal Report (vs 3.0.1.32) problem

Using Crystal Report version 3.0.1 can one write a formula on a memo field. I need this for my application.
Also my fields which are displayed in the details section keeps replicating into thousand's  of records . I ran the same report in CR ver 3.0.1 32-bit and higher and it was working fine. Please help

ok,
here is the soloution:
1. about the memo field. crystal reports cann't use a memo field for a formula try creating a view/query woth the to_char statment so the crystal reports user this memo field as a string field.

2. about the replication.maby u attached a table with a forien key to the main table and crystal reports is reading from the second table instead of the first one.
try to created a view\query of the fileds u need for the crystal reports and put a distinct in the select cluase.
