Hi Experts,

I am designing a Crystal report where I need to print some labels conditionally, means If certain condition is true then only those labels should get displayed in the report else they should not. I am using Crystal Report 9.0.

My question is

1) Is it Possible?

2) If it is Then How to do it?

I want ask one more thing about crystal report. In the crystal report i hv taken two groups for different fields, every thing is working fine except for one. I hv used order by purchasedate clause in the query. I hv tested the query in backend its working fine there. But in the crystal report order by clause in not working. It is displaying the dates in random order. i dont know why its happening. Can any body tell me whats the reason and how to solve it.

Regards

As above you can suppress fields conditionally.

The condition you use will suppress if it evaluates to true so if you have a condition that when true you want to display the label then you have to negate the condition in the suppression formula.

Using the above example if you wanted to display when a given field is positive you would suppress with

{YourField} <= 0

Data order.
Crystal uses the groups for the first sorting fields.

If you want it then in date order within the group you can
Click DATABASE --> RECORD SORT EXPERT
Add teh date field to the sort order.
