Crystal XI - Summarizing on formulas with groupings

Grapelady asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-15
I am trying to create a count on how many employees are in a wage bracket based on their job title.  I have groupings on the formulas for the wage brackets.  When I try to summarize the count I am receiving a message that I cannot summarize on a certain formula.  How do I get beyond this issue.

Formulas for Minimum, Mid and Maximum, plus 1st Quartile, 3rd Quartile and Median based on formula within for Total Annual Salary and grouping.

I have a created a formula (1st Quartile Count) to do a count on the employees within the brackets (IF Then Else) for a count of 1, but when I try to summarize the count I either cannot do it on Summary or with a formula (1st Quartile Total Count) receive a message I cannot summarize the field.  I need a count on each quartile and by Job Code.
