Filter Results Question

Hello,
      I have a crystal report I wrote to show me all open work orders in our database. I have it grouped by work order id, then work order release id and then part number id. In the details of the report I have several items. One of them is the operations, (sequences), of the work order. These are the steps that make up the work order. The report runs fine and the data is accurate. I would like to filter this report to only show me the open work orders that have an operation that starts with a specified text. I can use select expert to just show me the operations that start with the specified text but I want to see the other operations for that work order that don’t start with the specified text. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

If you can do it, build a stored procedure in the database.

You could also build a command to return the items you want.

You can do it in the report through the group select expert.  This is really just a suppression of the groups that don't meet the criteria so if you have summaries they will reflect the suppressed records.

Create a formula

If InStr({YourField},"YourText") > 0 then
    1
Else
    0

Click REPORT --> SELECTION FORMULAS --> GROUP EXPERT
Sum({YourFormula},{OperationsField}) > 0

Why do you believe it isn't working?

The string comparison is generally case-sensitive.

Sorry.  I didn't [age through it far enough.

WHen you use formulas like

Sum({Field1},{Field2})

Field2 must be one of the groups in the report.  You have 3 groups so those are the only fields you can use.  If you need to use another field for the sum to group on, you need to add it as a group
