I tried to wrote same formula in 2 different ways but unfortunately it didn't run.
It gives me below mentioned error when i try to preview my report.

1)Error: Numeric Overflow.

StringVar X;
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then
    X := chr({table_site.objid})
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If chr({table_site.child_site2site}) = X then
        {table_site.name}
    Else
        ""
Else
    ""

2)Error:The String is non-numeric.

StringVar X;
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then
    X := chr({table_site.objid})
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If {table_site.child_site2site} = ToNumber(X) then
        {table_site.name}
    Else
        ""
Else
    ""

Let me know as soon as you can.


Thanks for your time in advance.

is this C++?

could you see what's in X after the line

X := chr({table_site.objid})

maybe in a message or something?

The `chr` function returns a string containing the character associated with the specified character code.

and you you have to pass a numerique value to that function.

If you want to convert to Character, you should use the str() function.

Hope that help.

Try this...
StringVar X;
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then
    X := ToText({table_site.objid},0)
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If ToText({table_site.child_site2site},0) = X then
        {table_site.name}
    Else
        "" 
Else
    ""

I wrote below mention code:StringVar X;
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then    X := ToText({table_site.objid},0)
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If ToText({table_site.child_site2site},0) = X then        {table_site.name}
    Else        ""Else    ""
It shows me value of "{table_site.objid}".Actually in "Else if" part i wrote
"{table_site.name}".Means if condition is satisfied than it should display
that value.Instead of that it displays me value of "objid".
Let me know how do i resolve this problem.Or whats wrong with it ?
Thanks for your time in advance.I am eagerly waiting for your reply.

Above ones is not properly shown so i resubmit the same one.

I wrote below mention code:

StringVar X;
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then
    X := ToText({table_site.objid},0)
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If ToText({table_site.child_site2site},0) = X then
       {table_site.name}
    Else    
         ""
Else    ""

It shows me value of "{table_site.objid}".Actually in "Else if" part i wrote
"{table_site.name}".Means if condition is satisfied than it should display
that value.Instead of that it displays most of the time value of "objid" and sometimes "name".

StringVar X := ToText({table_site.objid},0);
If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Bldg" then
     X
Else If {table_site.x_site_group} = "Tenant" then
    If ToText({table_site.child_site2site},0) = X then
        {table_site.name}
    Else
        "" 
Else
    "";

At the first, I assign value of "objid" to X.
if x_site_group is "Bldg", yes it will return X.
if not...but is "Tenant", yes check if value is satisfied then return Site Name
unsatisfied the return "" (zero-length string)
other x_site_group will return "" (zero-length string)

Sorry, English language is not my native language, mine is Thai. I will apologise you if I mis-understand your question.

Happy with programming ^_^
