i am developing a Crystal Report and I want to be able to provide the following function, but I need help writing this function in VB.


groupcountnumber = 0

if( {Command.Status} <> "PRS" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZDEC" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZCLO") Then

groupcountnumber = groupcountnumber +1

End If

Formula = groupcountnumber

What I need is for a loop to read through all the records and keep on counting with an increment of 1 as long as the above If statement is accomplished.  I am not sure exactly how to write out this function in VB for Crystal Reports.  Can anybody help?

You can't loop through the records in Crystal.  There are several methods to accomplish this.

I like to use running totals
Display the FIELD INSERT popup
Click the RUNNING TOTALS tab
Click NEW (may have to right click)
Name countGroup
Type - Count
Field - Pick one (I tend to use the index field)
Execute - Use a formula
  ( {Command.Status} <> "PRS" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZDEC" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZCLO")
Reset - Never (or if this is a group count - on group change)

Put the field in one of the footer sections

Another way is to use formulas
In the report header
Name - DeclVars
Formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar groupcountnumber := 0;

In the detail section
Name - CountRecords
Formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar groupcountnumber;

if( {Command.Status} <> "PRS" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZDEC" or {Command.ACTIONCODE} = "ZCLO") Then
    groupcountnumber = groupcountnumber +1

In the footer
Name - DispCountRecords
Formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar groupcountnumber;
groupcountnumber
