urgent !!!!!! crystal report

question 1) using next({some_fields}) i would be able to get the 2nd record..any way to get the third record or the fourth..

question 2) in the case of 1 to many relationship, how can i  sum a repeating fld only once ?eg ,
Invnum    Cost   Parts
------------------------
1001      0.10    10
1001      1.11    10
1001      2.00    10
1002      0.09    11
1003      0.90    12
INVNUM & PARTS are from the parent table
COST is from the child table
and INVNUM is the link betw these 2 tables ... INVNUM is being repeated in the child table ....

the total for INVNUM 1001 should juz b 10 but i get 30....but i get 53....any ideas ?

as for your 2nd question: if you create a group for a field that repeats, it will be counted only once for summaries.

i have created a group for the field now but if i try to sum up the fields in the grand total section it will still calculate all the records instead of the figues on the report only.

Try to mark the Suppress Duplicates flag of the field. I think
it won't consider the records not getting printed on the report.

Try it out...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

that problem is now solved....i decided to user another way to do the report instead....it's a new 1 now...
when i print a report using VB it has this "Run  Time Error 20000" ...the ironic part is, the msg is "No Error"....what the hell is this...is there supposed an error or wat...help!!!!!

in my report i have included subreports as well..could that have caused the error and when i preview the report in crystal report itself there's a "Dictionary integrity error"...something like that...
wat the cause of these error???? thanks a million.....

"can not find sql server"
i experienced this problem also.  there is a relationship
between the Crystal DB Driver and the connect property.
To remove the error, in Crystal, choose Database--Change Database Driver.  Change the driver from ODBC to SQLServer.
Then change your Connect property for the Crystal OCX so that
the Server paramater says "SQLServer"
I called crystal about this.  you can too.  by the way i spoke
to Juaquin if it helps.
