I'm new to Crystal and have created this formula(@TotalCheckAmount):
IF ({PR1_EmployeeMaster.PayMethod} = "H")
THEN Sum (({PR_22PerpetChkHistoryHeader.TotalEarningsHours}),{PR1_EmployeeMaster.EmployeeNumber})* {PR1_EmployeeMaster.PayRate1}
ELSE SUM (({PR_22PerpetChkHistoryHeader.GrossWagesThisCheck}),{PR1_EmployeeMaster.EmployeeNumber})

The formula works fine but when I try to create a formula that will give me the sum; SUM {@TotalCheckAmount}
I get errors.  Is there a way to get this to work?

Thank you!

Create and add the following formulas to the Details section of your report:

//@Hourly Earnings
if ({PR1_EmployeeMaster.PayMethod} = "H")
then {PR_22PerpetChkHistoryHeader.TotalEarningsHours} * {PR1_EmployeeMaster.PayRate1}
else 0

//@Other Earnings
if ({PR1_EmployeeMaster.PayMethod} <> "H")
then {PR_22PerpetChkHistoryHeader.GrossWagesThisCheck}
else 0

//@Total Earnings
({@Hourly Earnings} + {@Other Earnings})

I'm assuming that you have created a Group on the {PR1_EmployeeMaster.EmployeeNumber} field so simply include a Sum of {@Total Earnings} field in your Group Footer section to see that employees total.  If you want a grand total for all employees, then copy and past the Sum of {@Total Earnings} to the Report Footer section.

You can always suppress the Details section or any formula fields that you don't want visible in your report.

Hi

Should it be instead
SUM (@TotalCheckAmount)

By the way, dxthorpe, the reason that I provided you the solution that I did was so that you would have the luxury of generating totals/subtotals of Hourly Earnings and Other Earnings if you should so desire.  There is a simpler way to do it but I thought you might like the extra possibilities.
