Crystal Report - Parameter/ Ideas
Posted on 2013-05-20
Good morning. I am trying to think of different ways to handle a report I created for commercial invoices. We have a field (COO - Country of Origin) that has to be typed in and for the most part works fine because it pulls the data for the COO from the DB. However, when there is a TBD or N/A in the field, it causes us an issue because obviously it will have to be hand written in which will cause it to be rejected at customs. I am thinking of the best way to handle this and the only thing I have come up with so far is to have users run the report as usual and in the event that the report returns data in the COO field that has TBD or NA, they then export the report to excel and then change the field by typing in the appropriate information.
Is there a way to create a formula that would allow the report to generate a parameter based off of the field data? Then from there they could actually select the COO from the list.
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
