Modify a current Crystal Report
Posted on 2013-06-14
I have a current Crystal Report that I want to modify but keep running into road blocks.
We have a program called Spectrum (dexter chaney) that has pre built reports that users can run however we want to filter it a little more than the Standard report does.
So I took the exisiting report and saved it to my computer and am trying to modify it to pull just the content we want to see.
Currently right now I can run the report through the Spectrum software and then save the report to my desktop and apply filters in Crystal Reports to pull the data I need, now if I save that report as a different name and import it back into Spectrum so that others can run that filtered report, they can except its all in the same date range I selected previously, so they are pulling the exact same report I am except they were wanting a different date range.
So I pulled just the standard report without running it through Spectrum software and added the filter to it and put it back in place, now you can select different date ranges but the filter isn't applying.
How can I get this filter to always work whenever somebody runs this report?
