crystal 10 coloring problem (red,yellow,green,blue)



 


I have 4 values of a field (osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname) the max value color needs to be Red,the least value needs to be blue.

the 2 values in between need to yellow and green.
its like red<yellow,green<blue

I coded::
if
{osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} =maximum({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})
 then
     color(150,230,200)

else
 
    color(10,19,200)

its not working.....

Add your field {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} to the report.

Right click the field, and choose format field.
Under the Font tab, click the x+2 button to the right of color, and enter the following logic:

if {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} = maximum({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}) then
    crRed
else if {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} = NthLargest(2,{osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}) then
    crYellow
else if {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} = NthLargest(3,{osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}) then
    crGreen
else if {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname} = minimum({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}) then
    crBlue
else
   crBlack

The last else isn't necessary if you only have 4 values, but it is a catch all if there are any extra values.

I go to section expert ,
click on the section header which has the field  CountOftsname),
then click on color
then put muy code in formula workshop..

This is the code I just ran

If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
Maximum ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crRed
Else
    If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
Minimum ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crBlue
Else
     DefaultAttribute

this runs well the O/p is

1.max value of  CountOftsname is showing red(which is ok)


2.Least value is showing Blue(which is ok)

Problem is::

3.ANything other than  max and min  is yellow...
The value after the max(immediate after max)  is yellow which is ok  and the value after that  i.e (immediate before min)has to be green but is yellow..

its like this
CountOftsname            color
44                                 red
34                                 yellow
7                                    green
1                                     blue


The green one is the problem..i dont know how to code it..

This should do it for you:

If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
Maximum ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crRed
Else
    If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
Minimum ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crBlue
Else
    If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
NthLargest(2,{osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crYellow
    If ({osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname})=
NthLargest(3,{osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CountOftsname}, {osg_fbct_db_viewW_count.CY_CYCLE}) Then
     crGreen
Else
     DefaultAttribute
