Hey,
I need to add a pass or fail to a report contingent upon a tech arriving on site within a specific time frame.
Example:

if {TIMESTMP.STATUS} = 50 (this is "arrived") and {TIMESTMP.TIMEENTER} (this gives actual time stamp of his arrival)  is LESS THEN or EQUAL to 4 hours from {TIMESTMP.STATUS} = 1 (this is when the ticket was created) then give me "PASS" ELSE "FAIL"

I assume you have separate records for each status.
You need to group the report on the TicketID

Try this

In the report header and group header add a formula
Name - DeclVars
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateTimeVar TicketStart;
Global DateTimeVar TechArrived;
Global BooleanVar TechHasArrived;

TechHasArrived := False;
""

Open in new window

In the detail section add a formula
Name - SetTimes
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateTimeVar TicketStart;
Global DateTimeVar TechArrived;
Global BooleanVar TechHasArrived;

If {TIMESTMP.STATUS} = 1 then
    TicketStart := {TIMESTMP.TIMEENTER}
Else If {TIMESTMP.STATUS} = 50 then
(
    TechHasArrived := True;
    TechArrived:= {TIMESTMP.TIMEENTER};
);
""

Open in new window

In the group footer add a formula
Name - DisplayArrivedOnTime

WhilePrintingRecords;
Global DateTimeVar TicketStart;
Global DateTimeVar TechArrived;
Global BooleanVar TechHasArrived;
Local StringVar strOut;

If Not TechHasArrived then
    strOut := "No Tech"
Else If DateDiff('h',TicketStart,TechHasArrived) <= 4 then
    strOut := "Pass"
Else
    strOut := "Fail";
strOut

Open in new window

Is TIMEENTER a datetime, or just a time?

 If it's just a time, mlmcc's second formula will need to be changed.

 Also, if it's just a time, can the time span include midnight?  For example, could STATUS 1 be at 11 PM and STATUS 50 be at 2 AM (3 hours later)?

Hey mlmcc's Formula let me in the right direction but I was able to get this done a bit differently the field is just time. thanks for your input.
here is how it worked out. I separated the two times.

If {@Priority} = "P2" and  {@Settimes}- {@AArriveTime} <= 4 then

    "Pass"
Else IF {@Priority} = "P2" and  {@Settimes}- {@AArriveTime} >= 4 then
    "Fail"
Else ""
