Crystal Reports 11.5 select all records for numeric field

Hi.  I've been trying to figure out this issue but I think I'm making it overly complex.  I want to select all records for a journal entry based on user input for a numeric field.  

The selection criteria I use currently only works for one or more journal numbers:
 {tglTransaction.JrnlNo} in {?JournalNo}.  

How do I make this work for "All records"?  I have no problem using wildcards and such for strings but can't make the leap in how to do it based on number fields.  I want the user to input one or more journal entry numbers, or something akin to "*" for all journals, and have the data set filter for that input.  

Thanks in advance for your help.

Try this idea

Pick a value say 99999 to represent all.
Change the prompt to
   
     "Enter a list of values (Use 999999for all): "

Change the selection criteria to

{?JournalNo} = 999999
OR
{tglTransaction.JrnlNo} in {?JournalNo}

Thanks for the quick reply  I see where you're going with this but I don't understand what goes in the "then" part of the statement for selecting all records:

if {?JournalNo} = 999999
   Then ??????
   Else {tglTransaction.JrnlNo} in {?JournalNo}

What's the equivalent of the string selection "*" for number fields?
mlmccCommented:
You can use exactly what I gave you or in your method use TRUE

if {?JournalNo} = 999999 Then 
    True
Else 
    {tglTransaction.JrnlNo} in {?JournalNo}

Thank you.  I was expecting to have the parameter used in the selection of all records.  Now that I understand that the 999999 has nothing to do with selection at all, what you did this makes perfect sense.
