Regular and overtime

Regular and overtime

I need to create a payroll report that separates employees' hours into regular and overtime.
The employees go out on service jobs (dispatches). Each dispatch will have a start and end time. I've already calculated the number of hours for each dispatch. For example, 3.50 hours. Regular time is the number of hours prior to 40 hours in a week. Overtime is the remainder in a week. Some employees work less than 40 hours. A dispatch can have hours in both categories if the prior dispatch was just under 40 hours.
I've grouped the data by employee and week and sorted it by date. I have a formula field, runtot, that accumulates the hours. All would be great if I could use the previous function to get the previous running total for each dispatch. Crystal won't allow it. Not sure why.
I suspect that the solution would be to create an array, but that eludes me.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Regular and overtime

I'm not clear on how this would be structured. Are you trying to get to something like this:

Jimmy Day Reg OT
Monday 10
Tuesday 11
Wednesday 10
Thusrday 9 1
Friday 0 10

RE: Regular and overtime

I believe that I've figured it out.

Emp date hours reg ot
1 1-Sep 8 8 0
1 2-Sep 8 8 0
1 3-Sep 10 10 0
1 4-Sep 10 10 0
1 5-Sep 8 4 4
1 6-Sep 4 0 4

Note that on 9/5 the hours were split between regular and overtime and that on 9/6 all the hours went to overtime.
I did a test on the running total and was able to split between the two types of time.
