Hello,
I have below if loop in crystal formula:

if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action}= 'D' then
{Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}
ELSE  
if (isnull ({Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action})= true 
 then
{Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}
ELSE
if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action} = 'R' then

{Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}

You need to change the formula to test for NULL first.  Crystal errors out when it uses a NULL value in a test other than IsNull

if (isnull ({Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action})= true ) then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}
ELSE if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action}= 'D' then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}
ELSE if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action} = 'R' then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}

You can also eliminate the comparison to TRUE for the IsNull test

if IsNull ({Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action}) then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}
ELSE if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action}= 'D' then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}
ELSE if {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Action} = 'R' then
     {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.Qty}  - {Non_FormularyDrugReporttest;1.creditqty}
