Suppress a group based on fields within a group

Hi Guys,
I have a report that I want to suppress a group for, but only under specific conditions.

I would like to suppress the entire group if a field within that group of records doesnt equal 24 and any other number.

So I may have 4 records, in a group that equal 24, 2, 3, 12 and I would like that group to be shown.
But i may have another group of 3 records that is 24, 24, 24 and I would like it suppressed,
also if a group of 3 records was 12, 18, 13 Id like that suppressed too.
Can someone help me with the formula to suppress in the section expert?

It depends on what the conditions are that you want to meet.

Do you want to suppress the records but include them in summaries?

You could try a formula like
Name - Has24
If {Myfield} = 24 then

You could then suppress based on a formula like

Sum({@Has24}) > 0

No, I do not want include any groups (and therefore records in that group) that do not meet the group condition. That being that of the records in the group, one particular field (@left2) = 24 and in another record the number equalls any number (but not 24 again).
So Id like to keep these groups Where @left2 in four records =
24, 24, 2, 13
24, 1

but not these groups
24, 24, 24
1, 13, 15, 6
You could try using it as a GROUP SELECTION formula

Group selection (as mlmcc suggested) is probably the best that you can do in a report, but it's basically just another form of suppression.  CR will still be reading all of those records (it has to, in order to know whether or not the group meets your conditions), but it won't be showing them on the report.  Since it's still reading the records, they'll be included in any CR summaries, so if you need any totals, you'll probably have to calculate them manually using formulas and variables.  Also, while CR won't show the excluded groups on the report, they will still be listed in the group tree, if you're using that.

 Using a Has24 formula like the one that mlmcc posted, if you only want to see the groups that had 24 _and_ some other value, I think the group selection formula (Report > "Selection Formulas" > Group) would be something like:

Sum ({@Has24}, {group field}) > 0 and Sum ({@Has24}, {group field}) < Count ({group field})

 The second part is to eliminate the groups that have 24 in every record.
