Hi,

I have a report that uses multiple and lengthy formula fields.  I need to replace one field with another and the field I’m replacing is used throughout many of the formulas in the report.  Is there a feature similar to a find and replace?  Note – the actual field is not displayed on the report, it is only used within the formulas.

Thanks for any help.

Shannon

No version of Crystal offers this unfortunately.

Update – I noticed the Find & Replace icon in the Formula Editor.  My report is using an SAP BW query as its data source.  When I clicked on the Find icon, I indicated that I am searching for a field.  A field that I searched for is {OVN_SITE_OVNSSITESQ001.D~[AP_CUST__0LEGALFORM]~D}.  Even though I see this in the formula, its saying it does not exist.  

This is the naming convention of SAP BW – should I be searching for just D~[AP_CUST__0LEGALFORM]~D}?  OVN_SITE_OVNSSITESQ001 is the query name and precedes every field.

I’m on Crystal 11.

Thanks.

The find and replace only works on one formula at a time.  I have no idea what you should be looking for.  Maybe you should post this in the SAP forum?
