hi,
I am new to crystal reports.
When writing a report I came across the need to have a date on my report.
The report is a statement and needs to have an as of date.
I would like it to be the first of the month EXP. June 1,2008 or 06/01/08.
The date needs to change as the months change. it always needs to say the first of the month so I can not use the print date function.
How do I go about this?
Thank you for your help
