Crystal Last full year & YTD Last full month

have several running totals that I need to add a formula for dates and cannot figure out the syntax.

Database field:  invoicedate  
Format: mm/dd/yyyy
Formula 1: Need ability to do the following but have it put then year in dynamically so I dont have to always go in and update the year.
{oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (2011, 01, 01) to Date (2011, 12, 31)

Formula 2: Need formula to allow me to get current YTD to last full month. For example if today is 4/13/2012 it need to put the following:

{oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (2012, 01, 01) to Date (2012, 03, 31)

Last year
Year({oeeh.invoicedt}) = Year(CurrentDate) - 1

This year full months
{oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (Year(CurrentDate), 01, 01) to CurrentDate - Day(CurrentDate)

Just reduce the years by 1 like this:

{oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (Year(CurrentDate) -1, 01, 01) to DATEADD(year, -1, CurrentDate - Day(CurrentDate))

yes, sorry about that.
 
I am having problems with the formulas and the data it is pulling. both formula 1 & formula 2 are pulling the same data\numbers

Formula 1: Year({oeeh.invoicedt}) = Year(CurrentDate) - 1


Formula 2: {oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (Year(CurrentDate) -1, 01, 01) to DATEADD(year, -1, CurrentDate - Day(CurrentDate))

Where are you putting the formulas?

kelsanitAuthor Commented:
in the running total formula section.

mlmccCommented:
It should be used as the record filter.

If you are using them in the evaluate when part of the running total then you need to use the formulas I provided or split the other into last year and this year to date.

This gets all the records for last year
Formula 1: Year({oeeh.invoicedt}) = Year(CurrentDate) - 1

This gets all records for last year through a year ago last month
Formula 2: {oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (Year(CurrentDate) -1, 01, 01) to DATEADD(year, -1, CurrentDate - Day(CurrentDate))

To get this year to date for full month
Formula 2: {oeeh.invoicedt} in Date (Year(CurrentDate) , 01, 01) to CurrentDate - Day(CurrentDate))
