Crystal Reports formula issue

I am trying to create a summary that only looks at the past months data.  The query pulls the past 6 months, but I only have a summary for the past month.   I am using a case statement as below...

select (Month({Ens_CustDashReport;1.order_date}))
      case  Month(CurrentDate - 1):
    ((Sum({Ens_CustDashReport;1.On Time shipment})/count({Ens_CustDashReport;1.co_line})) * 100)

   Default : 20

This doesn't work it always looks at the entire collection.  Can anyone help?

Try a formula like
Name - LastMonthShipped
If ({Ens_CustDashReport;1.order_date} In LastFullMonth then
     {Ens_CustDashReport;1.On Time shipment}
Else
    0

Open in new window


Add another formula
Name - LastMonthCount
If ({Ens_CustDashReport;1.order_date} In LastFullMonth then
    1
Else
    0

Open in new window


Summarize with
Sum(LastMonthShipped) / Sum(LastMonthCount) * 100

Open in new window

The problem is that CR summary funtions (Sum, Count, etc.) always give you the total for the entire report (or group).  It's not conditional.  For example, if you have a formula like this:

if {field1} = "Y" then
  Sum ({field2})

 Whenever field1 is "Y", you'd get the total for field2 for the entire report.  If field1 is not "Y", you'd get 0.

 You can use formulas like the ones that mlmcc posted to control which records are included in a summary, although the last formula should be:

Sum({@LastMonthShipped}) / Sum({@LastMonthCount}) * 100


 FWIW, I'd probably use formulas like those, but, if you don't need the summaries until the end of the report, running totals would be another option.  You would set the summary and count to be evaluated when the date was in the desired month.
