Inlude a formula in sql command

Inlude a formula in sql command

Inlude a formula in sql command


Using Crystal report 2011
I need to link two views by one field. The field type however is different in both views, so I am not able to link them.

I have VWSCHEDULEVOLUNTEER.VOLUNTEER_KEY with numbers from 1 to ...
I have VWSRVOLUNTEERDEMOGRAPHICS with strings like VRN-1 to VRN-...

I never used sql commands as I don't really know how to write them. But would it be possible adding below formula


to below command so that I could link these fields?




RE: Inlude a formula in sql command

You can create another view in the database and join the existing views. In SQLServer the new view will look like this:

FROM view1 v1
INNER JOIN view2 v2 ON v1.Key = 'VRN-' + CONVERT(varchar(100),v2.Key)

If you do not have permissions to create a view inside the database you can create a command using the same SQL and base your report on it.
