I want all values in Field1 appear in my report and I'm using this formula for it:

Join(makearray({View1.Field1}), ", ")

I'm getting the error message:  A string array is required here.

I work with Crystal 10 and Oracle 9.2

I'll appreciate any answer

    Are you declaring the array anywhere?  I think it would work if you created to formulas - one to populate the array and one to display the value.  Place the Populate Array formula in the detail section (suppress it if you don't want it displayed).


    Global StringVar Array myArray;
    Redim Preserve myArray [recordnumber];
    myArray[recordnumber]:= {View1.Field1}


    Global StringVar Array myArray;
    Join(myArray, ", ")
