Same report for different date ranges

Same report for different date ranges

Same report for different date ranges

Using a MS SQL database and Crystal version RTM

We have a standard report on calls received. The report users like to receive the report for calls received that day, for the prior week and for the prior month.

Currently to accommodate their wishes, I have 3 versions of the report that are basically the same except for the date selection. The issue is whenever a change is made to the report, I need to change 3 reports.

Would it be possible to use the same report for the various date ranges? If yes, how? The few things I tried did not work.


RE: Same report for different date ranges

Sure--add a string parameter {?TimePeriod} with the three options you mention as values: Today, Prior Week, Prior Month. Then set up the record selection formula like this:

{?TimePeriod} = "Today" and
<your currentday selection formula here>
) or
{?TimePeriod} = "Prior Week" and
<your prior week selection formula here>
) or
{?TimePeriod}="Prior Month" and
<Your prior month formula here>
