Dear Sir;
 
 I am coding about Rstaurant System. It have Shift which can open 17.00 to 2.00 of new day.(17:00 of 1 Aug to 2:00 of 2 Aug) But it remain be 1 day of working.

 Although I can create Report by choosing each date with shift but I have problem about choosing Date Range by having Shift also.

Assume that I want to see 1 Aug to 5 Aug.. There are 2 Shift(17:00-21:00 and 21:01-2:00(new day))
It mean that (17:00 of 1Aug - (17:00 of Aug5 and 2:00 of 6Aug)) is what I will see in report.

Please reply me because it is Important. via email at u3520384@hotmail.com or talk your email to me...
So that I can contact you directly if you want more detail

Not quite sure what you need here.

What are you reporting off of? (DB? if so what is the file layout)

What do you want to see on the report exactly? (Sorts, Groups, Details, Totals, etc....Leave a short example)

Why not subtract 2 hours from the date value during your query and add it back while printing the report?

This is Real Expression I use in Selection Formula
({Sale_Order_Header.SO_Start_Date}>='2001/07/12' and {Sale_Order_Header.SO_Start_Time}>='09:00:00') //9:00 pm
Or ({Sale_Order_Header.SO_Start_Date}='2001/07/14' and {Sale_Order_Header.SO_Start_Time}<='02:00:00')  //2:00 am

I use this expression in Selection Formula, It list all record.
Problem: I want to view sale order of 2001/07/12 at 09:00:00 until  2001/07/14 at 02:00:00...

Please answer me please , or you send answer via email at u3520384@hotmail.com or post your email so that I reply back for more detail

First of all, you must use 24 hour format since you are using string variable to represent time.. Your 9PM will be 21:00:00 and not 09:00:00

Your logic has to be modified as follows.

Criteria : Start date, start time, end date, end time.

criteria :
(startdate = saledate and saletime >=starttime) or (enddate = saledate and saletime <endtime)

1. See if both dates are separated by more than one day.
If yes then

additional criteria: (saledate >= startdate+1 and saledate<= enddate-1)

Final criteria = criteria + " or " + additional criteria
else
final criteria =criteria

end if

This is the basic algorithm that will suit your requirements. Please kindly convert it to crystal formula, like date+1 , date-1 etc. Hope you will be able to do that.
