# Need help in writing a Crystal reports formula

Hello,

I have a data printing as shown below.  My report is grouped by Ticket Number.  I have shown the details section of one ticket no.

Ticket No         Type                   Duration Time
IM44-00256    Initial                    0.00
IM44-00256   Resolved            3.35

What I need to write is a formula that just SUM the Duration time of 2nd Downgrade = 6.62 and the Resolved = 3.35.

The concept behind this is, if there's an Type = upgrade and the previous type = "Downgrade" then get the Duration Time and add to DurationTime of type = "Resolved" and show it in the group footer of each ticket number. If there's no "Upgrade" after a Type "Downgrade" then just show the DurationTime of Type = "Resolved"

Thank you

Try this :

1.write a formula and place it Group Header and suppress

whileprintingrecords;
numbervar num ;

2. write a formula and place it Details and suppress

whileprintingrecords;
numbervar num ;
num := num + {Duration Time}
else if {Type} = "Resolved " then
num := num + {Duration Time}

3. write a formula and place it Group Footer and show
whileprintingrecords;
numbervar num ;
num

======if your time is not number ,then change "numbervar" to "
timevar" in all of above formulas========

Perfect! This works awesome!

I just have a slight modification because if Type = "Resolved" it should be as

num := {Duration Time}

Thank you very much
