Dear Friends,
I am terribly stuck up with this.
I have a crystal report in which I need to display the reference numbers in one of the fields.

Since the field is in a header section, I created a subreport with the formula field that need to display the values.

For eg: In the main report, for order number 1, it can have reference number 1,2,3. The sub report field is placed in the main report and it displays as

,1
,1,2
,1,2,3

My formula field is

stringvar tmp := tmp + "," + ToText ({inv.r_no});

An immediate help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Venkat.

I don't understand your question or problem.

What are you placing on the report?
What do you want to see?
What are you getting?

Here again.

In my table I have records like this:

ord no     ref no
1               1
1               2
1               3

In my report, for ord no 1, I want to display 1,2,3 for the ref no field. So, I added a formula field and gave this formula.

stringvar tmp := tmp + "," + ToText ({inv.r_no});

and the formula field displays like this:

,1
,1,2
,1,2,3

Do I sound clear now?

Thanks,
Venkat.

I assume the subreport is linked to the main report by the order number.  If not it should be.

Try this
In the subreport
Select the formula field
Click FORMAT --> FORMAT FIELD
Click the formula button next to SUPPRESS
Enter the following formula
NOT OnLastRecord
