Crystal Reports

Posted on 2013-01-31
Last Modified: 2013-02-14

I have a table filled with accounting bills, I'd like to create a crystal report that groups these bills by their date difference from today, kind of like an aging accounts receivable.

Such as :

0-30 days:
Bill 1
Bill 2
Bill 3

30-60 days:
Bill 4
Bill 5
Bill 6

60-90 days:
Bill 7
Bill 8
Bill 9

I'm wondering if this is at all possible?

Thank you

The way I would do it is to create a view in SQL like


... ,

  when datediff(day,datefield,getdate()) < 30 then 1
  when datediff(day,datefield,getdate()) < 60 then 2
  when datediff(day,datefield,getdate()) < 90 then 3
  else 4
end as dategroup
FROM         MyTable

Then base your report on this view and group on 'dategroup' and name each one appropriately.

If you are not allowed to mess with the databse then in CR you can use the same idea.

Create a formula field ...@AgeGroup

Numbervar diff:=Currentdate-{table.datefield};
If diff <=30 then
"0-30 Days"
If diff <=60 then
"31-60 days"
If diff <=90 then
"61-90 days"
"91days and over"

Then group on this formula field.
