I'm new to Crystal, and in version 8.5, when I get to the portion of the Report Expert Wizard that lets me define my selection critieria, I can't seem to find how I can perform IS NULL or IS NOT NULL criteria.  I select a field, but the values that appear in the critieria box (is a value, is not equal to, is gretaer than, etc) does not include IS NULL or IS NOT NULL.  I know there has to be a way to do this, so maybe I am just missing it.

Hi ccorrente,

Show the selection formula and type directly into it.

For the negation

NOT IsNull({mytable.myfield})

You can also do it from the Report Expert, by choosing the last option, "Formula", in the drop down.
You can then enter the criteria such as what Pete as posted.  

BTW, I am sure it was a typo, but Pete's formula will need a closing parenthesis at the end.
