In writing a Balance Sheet with Crystal Reports, due to rounding, Assets and Liabilities/Equity do not equal.  What functions or formulas can be suggested to address the difference between Assets and Liabilities/Equity?

Well, how do you want to "address" the differences?  Ignore them?  Try to "adjust" some figures to compensate for them somehow?  Something else?

 How different are they?  A few pennies?  Thousands of dollars?

 Are the figures in question totals that the report is calculating from a series of detail records (in which case, maybe you want to round some of those detail amounts), or is the report just getting a lump sum for each figure?

 CR has functions like Round that will round a figure up or down, but, at this point, I have no idea if those will help you.
