I have an oracle function that I use that takes in three values and returns one string.  I can call this function from within any sql query/view etc.
Is it possible to call an oracle function from within an SQL Expression in Crystal Reports?

well, I don't konw if they can or not, I seem to be having trouble doing so.  I have never called a function from an SQL Expression before.  Do you know the syntax for doing such a thing?
