I am looking to get a search and replace at a specific location in Crystal Syntax.  I have a database spitting out records stating 01/11/A6, but I want to be able to convert 01/11/A6 to a date that says 01/11/06.  Can anybody help me please?

Replace({YourDatabaseField},'/A6','/06')

This formula will return the original field value but replace the A with a zero.  Is that what you're looking for?

Replace({YourDataBaseField}, '/A', '/0')

But thanks anyway.  500 points for you!
