Creating a formula for a conditional count on two unique values in Crystal Reports

I'm using the following formula successfully with a summary (count) on that formula to count unique values in a field:
if {table.field} = 1   then '1'    else '0'

I'm now trying to count two unique values and cannot get the summary count to work:
if {table.field} = 1 OR  {table.field} = 2  then '1'    else '0'

It does not combine the two values in the count.

Is your count coming incorrect?

Oh it is working after I changed the ELSE {@NULL} and did a COUNT instead of DISTINCT COUNT in the summary. Sorry for the  confusion!

Try this also  , do not include else part.

if {table.field} = 1 OR  {table.field} = 2  then '1'

You could also do it this way

if {table.field} = 1 OR  {table.field} = 2  then
    1
Else
    0

Then do a SUM instead of a count

No need to worry about distinct count or the '0' values being counted.
