I am currently passing in a datetime field from SQL to Crystal, then I am using format editor to convert it to "March 01, 1999".  My client wants the month in uppercase i.e. "MARCH 01, 1999".  Is there an easy way to do this?

I believe you will have to convert the date to a string first then you can use the ucase function in VB syntax.
I don't have any CR references here and will verify tonight.

mlmcc's got it.  Here's the formula to do it, using Crystal syntax:

UCase(ToText({Table.DateField}, "MMMM dd, yyyy"));

Be sure you choose VB Syntax.
