Hi, I'm making a crystal report and used a parameter:  date,  "10/23/2010".  I'd like to create a single numeric field from a formula like "201010".  When I create the date "10/23/2010" as Year 2010 (number) then Month 10 (number) then try to concatenate the two I get a string value with comma and decimal like 2,010.00 then I can not format the field, same for the month 10.00 they both show up as string values.

Is there a way to do this as 201010?  I need to do some calculation and compare on these fields once created as formulat.  What  do I need to  use?   I tried Concatenate (&, +""+,Var,Cstr,etc.)  Is there anyway to do this?  Thanks in advance.

That should work.

Using your method you would want to use

CStr(Year({Datefield},0,'') & CStr(Month({DateField},0)

The 0 means 0 - decimal places and the '' is the thousands separator - in this case none
