Using Edit Masks in Crystal

Using Edit Masks in Crystal

Using Edit Masks in Crystal

i want to display the Amount using edit prompt
the issue is it has to read the currency type and give me differnt prompts for different currency
To explain in detail
if the currency is JAPAN-JPY then My edit prompt is 999,999,999
but if it is US Dollars-USD then it is 999,999,999.99
how can i do this and where to do it
Please help as i am nearing my dead line

Thanks in advance

RE: Using Edit Masks in Crystal

In Crystal, can't you use the conditional formatting?

Right click on the field (in the report) and choose FORMAT FIELD.


You can use the formula options (X+2 buttons) to specify the conditons.

It can reference a formula, parameter, value, etc....

I have seen that option but Couldnt understand how to use it Can you explain it in detail please or tell me where can i find a help on how to use this (X+2) option

RE: Using Edit Masks in Crystal

It is giving me the option of specifying the edit mask only if it a string
but my field is currency (sum to be specific)
So can we specify edit masks to currency in Crystal
with this conditional formatting
