Make sure that the values in your maths are all numeric. Crystal may have trouble if any value it reads is null. Either goto the file menu and set all database nulls to default values, or catch these suckers and handle them.

I suspect the problem is this formula field
{@Total ASA}
Judging from the name it looks like this might be doing a calculation across multiple records.
If so then it probably can't be used in a formula which is summed.

You  would have to use variables and build your own sum as you go.

having trouble with variables

Whileprintingrecords;

Global CurrencyVar Tot;

Tot = Tot + IF {Z_MEV_MONTH.ComponentItemNumber} = "120001" Then
((({Z_MEV_MONTH.NewProduction}* 0.47) - ({Z_MEV_MONTH.DeltINV}* -1)) * 0.26)
Else If  {Z_MEV_MONTH.ComponentItemNumber} = "81009" Then
((((({Z_MEV_MONTH.DeltINV}/({@Total ASA}*0.3) * 0.6411) * {Z_MEV_MONTH.NewProduction})*-1) - ({Z_MEV_MONTH.DeltINV}* -1)) * .311)
Else If {Z_MEV_MONTH.ComponentItemNumber} = "81010" Then
((((({Z_MEV_MONTH.DeltINV}/({@Total ASA}*0.3) * 0.6411) * {Z_MEV_MONTH.NewProduction})*-1) - ({Z_MEV_MONTH.DeltINV}* -1)) * .311)

just returns True or False???

You are in Crystal syntax for the formula. Assignment is done with :=. The = is used for comparison

Change the first line to
Tot := Tot + IF {Z_MEV_MONTH.ComponentItemNumber} = "120001" Then
