Crystal Reports Null Field

      I have a Crystal report that I wrote that has a notes field that if this field is empty in the database it pulls from then the whole details line does not show.  It also kind of strange that I cannot select this field with “Select Expert” as it does not show in the “Choose Fields”, “Report Fields” window. I have attached a copy of this report. Any help would be great.

Thank you

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Oops, forgot to attach the report. There now.
Change the link to the table with the note field to a LEFT OUTER JOIN
Right click one of the joins
Click box by LEFT OUTER JOIN

You cannot select on a MEMO field

The LEFT OUTER JOIN will pull the other information even if there is no note
