We are using Crystal Reports 8.  We have a report already created, but the person who will be using it wants a date field of a record in the report changed if the time for that record is 11pm.

Source of the data is an SQL database that we cannot edit.  I need to know where I can put in an "If/Then" so that when a record's time is 11pm, for it to display the date of that record -1 day.  For Example, the record in the database would have the following:

wc_schedule_part_tool_view.time_schd = 11pm
wc_schedule_part_tool_view.date_schd = 08/04/04

We want it to then display this record as:

wc_schedule_part_tool_view.time_schd = 11pm
wc_schedule_part_tool_view.date_schd = 08/03/04

Thanks.

What you need to do is instead of displaying the wc_schedule_part_tool_view.date_schd field, create a formula that will output the display.  Your formula would be this:

if hour({wc_schedule_part_tool_view.time_schd}) = 23 then
   DateAdd('d',-1,{wc_schedule_part_tool_view.date_schd })
else
   {wc_schedule_part_tool_view.date_schd}

Use the formula instead of the date field and you're all set.
