I would like to know the syntax on indexing an array in Crystal Syntax.  I am in the formula workshop, and am dealing with a database field that contains multiple values separated by semicolons.  Thanks

What version of CR are you using?  When you say, "database field that contains multiple values separated by semicolons", are these contained within one column?

Yes, I was thinking this:
//StringVar array months = split(sValues, ";");
//months[12];

but I know it is incorrect

well, this appears to work after some rework

split(sValues,';')[12]

split will parse out the column.  The [12] indicated which object in the array you want to use.

split return a string.  The number only indicated the subscript that should be return to the report.
