Crystal Query Won't work

I have a a database which moves data from one table to another when a puchase order is closed on the system
I am trying to set a formula which will pick the data from the appropriate table (@Period), but it only retrieves data from one table (REQ)
I have modified the formula (@Period2) whereby it retrieves the data from the other table (POREQHVW)
Attached word doc with screen shoot and formulae
CR-Period.doc

If I understand what you intend here then the if structure is incorrect as everthing depends on the result of the first if..

I think this is what I would be doing..

@Period =
Stringvar result ;
if isnull ({POREQHVW.APPROVEDDATE}) and  isnull({REQ.APPROVEDDATE}) then result:=”Invalid data”;
If not isnull ({POREQHVW.APPROVEDDATE}) and not  isnull({REQ.APPROVEDDATE}) then result:=”Invalid data”;

if isnull ({POREQHVW.APPROVEDDATE}) and  not isnull({REQ.APPROVEDDATE}) then
(
 if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,04,01 ) to  Date (2010,04,30 ) then result:= "2010-P04APR"
 Else if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,05,01 ) to  Date (2010,05,31 ) then result:=”2010-P05MAY"
Else if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,06,01 ) to  Date (2010,06,30 ) then result:= "2010-P06JUN"
Else if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,07,01 ) to  Date (2010,07,31 ) then result:= "2010-P07JUL"
else if….
. etc…..

 else Result:=”New Periods Required"
)
// otherwise ({POREQHVW.APPROVEDDATE}) must be null
Else
(
 if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,08,01 ) to  Date (2010,08,31 ) then result :=  "2010-P08AUG"
 else if  {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,09,01 ) to  Date (2010,09,30 ) then result:= "2010-P09SEP"
else if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,10,01 ) to  Date (2010,10,31 ) then result:= "2010-P10OCT"
else  etc…
else result:= "New Periods Required"
);

Hi Peter57r

Good to hear from you
Not sure if I did the right thing
Copied all below @Period =
But it says the formula is incorrect
it says a number,etc is required after
Else if {REQ.APPROVEDDATE}in Date (2010,07,01 ) to  Date (2010,07,31 ) then result:= "2010-P07JUL"
else if…

Hi Peter57r
I have added the new lines as shown in the code attached
It says a boolean is required at Else Result:="New Periods Required"

Also should the second part refer to the POREQHVW.APPROVALDATE field rather than repeating the REQ.APPROVALDATE field

Appreciate you help
Gordon

Hi Peter57r

Ok done that bit now shows no errors

Do I change the bottom section to {POREQHVW.APPROVALDATE} field rather than repeating the {REQ.APPROVALDATE} field
