hi all

i have a report where i want to suppress the value if it is negative.

i was using the following
if {Documents/Document/DetailData/DetailLine/General.DetInvNetAmount} < "0" then yes else no

which isnt working! if i say > "0" then the numbers suppress fine!

i think the issue is the way the negative is displayed


anyone see a trick for me to get what i desire?

i have tried: like "%%-" - didnt work either (is % the crystal placeholder?)
