Hi Experts,

I am creating a report where I need to group records yearly but it needs to depend on a specific date.
More in detail, my report is pulling employee records for their hours paid.
I need to show a total of hours paid yearly on the date he/she was hired

So if an employee was hired on 7/1/2010 then it needs to group and total as follows:

Range                                    Total hours paid
======                                  ===============
7/1/2010 - 6/30/2011                    456
7/1/2011 - 6/30/2012                    789
7/1/2012 - 6/30/2013                  1012

If you could guide me to the proper grouping formula I need to create I would really appreciate it

Thank you

CRM

since the employee started, so date of hire
if they started in 1999 then from 1999 to today

Try a formula like this

Local DateVar SaleYearStart := Date({Employee.Hire Date});
Local DateVar SaleYearEnd := Date(DateAdd('yyyy',1,{Employee.Hire Date}) - 1);
While SaleYearEnd < {Orders.Order Date} do
(
    SaleYearStart := Date(DateAdd('yyyy',1,SaleYearStart));
    SaleYearEnd := Date(DateAdd('yyyy',1,SaleYearEnd));
);

CStr(SaleYearStart,"M/d/yyyy") &  " -  " & CStr(SaleYearEnd,"M/d/yyyy")
