Data Criteria selection

Data Criteria selection

An inexperienced user of Crystal is in need of some assistance. I need to have specific data show on the report. Right now, one specific column shows either of the following results within each row: P, C, or null/blank. I need to prevent any row showing up on the report with a C. Is this done thru the parameters?
Appreciate any assistance, thanks

RE: Data Criteria selection

Go to Report -->Selection Formulas-->Record

not ({table.field}='C')

RE: Data Criteria selection

BettyJ's solution will work but you will also lose any records that have a NULL value in that field.
You will need to expand the record selection formula to:

CODE -->

(isnull({table.field}) or {tblEntity.EntityType} <> "C")
