I am trying to display the degree symbol as in 20 degrees F, but it wont work. I've tried writing a formula field for this like below, but it keeps saying there's an error in the field

"20" & Chr(186) & "F"

Any Suggestions?

It works just fine for me.  I tried it with bit " " and ' '

What version of Crystal?

What font are you using?

What syntax are you using for the formula?  Use Crystal Syntax.

When are you getting the error?

I was using Basic Syntax and it kept telling me there was an error when I tried to save the formula. Crystal Syntax works.

Thanx

In VB syntax I believe you use

FormulaName = "20" & Chr(186) & "F"

Glad I could help
