Hey Everyone,

I'm working in Crystal Reports 10, and I'm having some trouble with a selection formula using a wild card. I've tried a number of variations on the same formula, but can't get it to sort out the information properly...

{CI_Item.ItemCodeDesc} <> "Disco*"

The intent being to sort OUT any item with a description "Discontinued".

Is there a way to use wildcards in selection formulas like I'm aiming for above?

Worked like a charm! I also might add in that it's case sensitive! xD
