Group Name Formula Editor: problem with int formating

Hello,
I'm trying to customize a group Name like this:

CStr({Class.ClassID})+ " " +{Class.ClassDescription}

where ClassID is an Integer and ClassDescription a string.

Problem: the CStr({Class.ClassID}) expression returns "2.00"
so I get:
 "2.00 Women pents"
 "3.00 Men hats" etc...

instead of
 "2 Women pents"
 "3 Men hats"

how do I get the integer to be formated with no decimals?

Thanks

I typically use the ToText function, the Crystal counterpart to Cstr.

ToText({Class.ClassID},0,"") + " " + {Class.ClassDescription}
0

I looked up CStr and it works the same as ToText:

CStr({Class.ClassID},0,"") + " " + {Class.ClassDescription}
0

Yes this works.
Just to know CStr(Number, number decimals , seperator)
is this right?

(thanks for your quick answer, amazing!)

bdreed is exactly right

CStr(367.4999,0)

Returns "367".

CStr(367.5000,0)

Returns "368".

When you use 0 it rounds the integer. I dont think in your  case it will create a problem but just to let you know

arie_ben - Yes, that is correct.  Check out the CR Help files on how to use ToText or Cstr.  There is a wealth of different ways to use it that give you alot of control when converting non Text data into Text.
