I understand this may not be an easy question to answer briefly but I'll ask anyway. I was just wondering if someone could tell me about the 'BeforeReadingRecords', 'WhileReadingRecords', 'WhilePrintingRecords' and 'EvaluateAfter' constructs in Crystal. I've seen them used in lots of reports but I'm yet to use them myself as I don't fully understand their usage.

Have a look in the Crystal Help files.  Look in the Index under 'multi-pass reporting' and 'evaluation time functions'.

The Crystal/Business Objects site seems to be down at present, but there's also a document outlining the evaluation time functions here:

I didn't realise till the next day that I'd posted this question in the DB section and not crystal but not to worry I got an answer anyway. Thanks for the link, I'm printing it now and it should do just fine.
