Issue with Crystal 10 Record Selection

Hello experts:

I have a report with the following record selection criteria:
 
(({NewThreats.SuspiciousAmountIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.LowAverageBalanceIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.SimilarAmountsIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.UnusualZeroesIndicator} = '1' and

(not isnull({NewThreats.DrawingOnRDPIndicator}) and

{NewThreats.DrawingOnRDPIndicator} = '1'))  or

 
({NewThreats.SuspiciousAmountIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.LowAverageBalanceIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.SimilarAmountsIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.UnusualZeroesIndicator} = '1' and

(not isnull({NewThreats.DrawingOnExposureIndicator}) and

{NewThreats.DrawingOnExposureIndicator} = '1')))
 
I added the criteria below but the results are the same as before
even though there's tons of RDI on the database.

Or
({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')




 The new formula looks like this:

(({NewThreats.SuspiciousAmountIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.LowAverageBalanceIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.SimilarAmountsIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.UnusualZeroesIndicator} = '1' and

(not isnull({NewThreats.DrawingOnRDPIndicator}) and

{NewThreats.DrawingOnRDPIndicator} = '1'))  or

 

 

({NewThreats.SuspiciousAmountIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.LowAverageBalanceIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.SimilarAmountsIndicator} = '1' and

{NewThreats.UnusualZeroesIndicator} = '1' and

(not isnull({NewThreats.DrawingOnExposureIndicator}) and

{NewThreats.DrawingOnExposureIndicator} = '1')) or

 
({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')


)



 Thanks

or  ({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')

needs to be outside the last parenthesis.

Do you have any Null values in HitType?

Can any of the non-null tested fields be NULL?

Have you tried it

({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')

OR

Try moving the NULL checks to the top, like attached.

That is not the same since the the tested field after the null test is different.

I thought the same at first.

Is NewThreats the only table in the report?

Kurt ReinhardtSr. Business Intelligence Consultant/ArchitectCommented:
Good catch.  Since the "DrawingOn.." fields are set explicitly to = '1', there's no need for a NULL check at all, since if it's '1', it can't possibly be NULL.
