Hi:

How do I kick out the high and low values from an average in grouped data in Crystal.  The client does not want a weighted average.

I think that I may have to manipulate the code in the stored procedure before doing the calculation in Crystal reports..

As I am at home right now...I don't have the report writer infront of me but is there a conditional running total that would eliminate the highs and low values within a group?

Thanks, Lucy

Hi Lucy,

Yes, there is a minimum and maximum functino within the running total that you'll be able to use.

Hi :

I am still having problems:

So I have a formula called Total Case Times
                                        10
                                        15  
                                        23
                                     --------
                                        48

I want to eliminate the 10, and 23 from calculating in the average...(thats what client wants).

Do I use the nthlargest and nthsmallest ...?

Thanks, Lucy

I think you are going to have to look at using manual running totals.
Before I post a solution, is the average going to be for the whole report, or for a grouping?  IF it is a grouping, what is the field you are grouping on?

Hi bdreed35:

field:{@Total Case Time}
what I am grouping on {NHS_Setup_Proc_Teardowns_85193.proc_mnc}

Can the running total be done on a calculated field.

Thanks, Lucy
