Hi. I have very little knowledge of crystal reports but was hoping someone could help with this. What I need to do is to create a formula that will match part of a reference and then enter text or number.
So reference is abc/12/1234562, I want crystal to match /12/ and then insert 2012 into the report. I have tried a few things in formulas such as wild cards, and so far no luck. The other issue is that the characters before and after the /12/ can vary.

Thanks in advance
