Grouping/Parameter Field issues - Crystal Reports 9

I was tasked with creating a report for our company helpdesk.  This report is grouped by Completed and Pending tasks and filtered by a date range and location.  The date range works fine as does the grouping for Pending and Completed tasks.  The issue is in the filtering by Location.  Its not working correctly.  I will provide the Record selection code below:

{tasks.assndate} <= {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location} and {tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"
or
{tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location} and {tasks.status} = "Completed"
or
{?Location} = "All" and {tasks.assndate} <= {?Date} and {tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"
or
{tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.status} = "Completed"

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I suggest you try extensive use of brackets in your selection formula to make sure all the OR's and AND's are evaluated in the correct order.

Is there anyway to force evaluation in a specific order?

Yes.  Use (  )

If my memory is correct AND is evaluated before OR.  So in your case

{tasks.assndate} <= {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location} and {tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"
                                             1                                                2                                           8
or
9
{tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location} and {tasks.status} = "Completed"
                                           3                                                 4
or
10
{?Location} = "All" and {tasks.assndate} <= {?Date} and {tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"
                              5                                              6                                          11
or
12
{tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.status} = "Completed"
                                           7


I think this is more what you want
(({tasks.assndate} <= {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location}) and ({tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"))
or
({tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.location} = {?Location} and {tasks.status} = "Completed")
or
(({?Location} = "All" and {tasks.assndate} <= {?Date}) and ({tasks.status} = "Pending" or {tasks.status} = "Overdue"))
or
({tasks.assndate} = {?Date} and {tasks.status} = "Completed")
