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.

hi buddyp,

 initially when u create a variable it has some garbage value in it, so we have to assign a value to that variable X.

for ur code, first if statement will work good but when it reaches to else statement u r directly comparing the database field to a garbage value..



bye
happy working

Hello,

I posted what I believe is the correct answer for you in one of the other two versions of this same question, but I'll post it here as well.  I think the problem is that you have used the chr function which is supposed to be used to convert one ascii value to one character, to try and convert a string.  To convert a number to a longer string, use the ToText function instead of the chr function.
