Hi Experts

Can anyone please help me out with a sorting in my crystal reports? I have to sort the report from #date1# to #date2#. But I don't know how to and can't find something on the web

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanx in advance

Are date1 and date2 different fields or do you need to sort by one date field?
To sort by one, either add a group for the date or use the sort expert (the a z icon from the crystal toolbar in VS).

I have 2 parameter fields, Date_From + Date_To and when form loads, the report must only be the dates between this 2 dates

You need to use the select expert (icon looks like a hand picking up circles).  Choose your date field and then set it to "is between" and then choose your parameter dates as the two options.

You'll end up with a formula that looks like this:
{tbl.Date} in {?date1} to {?date2}

That does not sound like you need to do SORTING in your report as is the original question!
