Crystal Reports Formula Adding 1 to a Year "String" Field

Hello:

Below is an excerpt from an "If, Then" statement that I'm using in a formula in Crystal Report XI.

I need to edit the end of this formula.  Specifically, I need to mathematically add a "1" so that the phrase displays "Month of January 1, 2014".  As it is, the formula displays "Month of January 1, 2013".

When I try to tell Crystal's Formula Editor to add "1" to the year, it tells me that a string is required or something along those lines.

What syntax do I use to tell Crystal to add "1" to a year?  I'd rather not have to hard-code in the year.  

Thanks!

If {IVC10100.COMMNTID} = "JAN" then "Month of January 1, 20"+mid({IVC10100.INVCNMBR},3,2)

Try this

If {IVC10100.COMMNTID} = "JAN" then "Month of January 1, 20"+CStr(Val(mid({IVC10100.INVCNMBR},3,2) + 1),0)

I think one of the right parentheses in mlmcc's solution is in the wrong place.  I think it should be.

If {IVC10100.COMMNTID} = "JAN" then "Month of January 1, 20"+
 CStr(Val(mid({IVC10100.INVCNMBR},3,2)) + 1,0)

mlmcc should get at least most of the credit for the solution.  I was just pointing out a small mistake.

 You can use the "Request Attention" link to ask to have the question re-opened, and then accept mlmcc's post as the solution, instead of mine.

TBSupport,
 
I have reopened your question and started the process of closing it with a split amongst two or more Experts, as that outcome seems more equitable than your original disposition.

If you need to split the credit, that's fine, of course.

Is there anything else that I need to do?  I'm confused, as to why this is remaining in my "Open Questions" box.

The admin started a process to reclose the question, but it doesn't happen for a few days (to give people time to object, I guess).  I imagine that you could just close the question yourself (but include mlmcc's post as part of the solution this time).  Otherwise, the question should be closed today, or in the next day or two.
