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

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

Have you tried it

({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')

OR

or  ({NewThreats.Hittype} = 'RDI')

needs to be outside the last parenthesis.

Do you have any Null values in HitType?

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?

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.
