Where Group Name is October give Group Summary Field1

hello,

I have attempted to use the crosstab functions but I can not get what my manager wants.  In a formula can I retrieve a group summary field for a specified group?  Such as Group Name is October give me summary field1 or summary field2 or so on.

Sorry didn't notice that was Crystal.

In this case, have you tried like a formula for filtering the data you need, then using that formula on you SUM function, like this ...

With Sum function you can specify the scope (Dataset, Group or Data Region), something like this...

=Sum(Fields!Field1.Value, "October")

I dont know if this is what you really need.

I am using Crystal Reports and the SUM function is close to that but the conditions seem to limited to group options, that is daily, weekly, monthly, and so on.  I do not believe I can specify a specific group like October.  I have tried.

I am using a formula field and capturing the monthly summary values  in variables.  Then I can place them in my manual CrossTab looking objects.  I may look some more at crosstabs because maintenace of this reporting will be a killer.

Thanks!
