Help with Sorting in Crystal Reports


L

Lynsay

Hi All,

Can someone tell me if it is possible to sort by a part of a field in
Crystal Reports 8.5? I am trying to sort by the first two letters in
a description field and then by the date field. (I am using this with
Microsoft Great Plains, SQL database).

Thanks!

Lynsay,
Yes, you can. Create a formula with just data just the way you want it -
for example left(Desc,2) & cstr(datefld)
and sort by the formula name
