Crystal Reports line suppress by formula value

Crystal Reports line suppress by formula value

Crystal Reports line suppress by formula value

(OP)
I have a report that groups by job then department cost. I have a formula in the grouping that calculates the % of the department cost of the total job cost.

I would like to suppress all of the department lines except the one with the largest % of total cost. Is there a way to do this?

Job 123
dept a 10%
dept b 20%
dept c 60%
dept d 10%

I want to suppress all lines on this job except dept c (the highest %)

RE: Crystal Reports line suppress by formula value

Please post the content of the percent formula.

I am assuming the second group is on dept, not cost.

I have three groups: Customer, Job and Department in that order.

So the total cost of the department / the total cost of the job to create the % of each department cost.


if Sum ({@TotalCost}, {SSRpt_JobCostFinalJobsnrw.JobNo}) = 0 then 0
else Sum ({@TotalCost}, {@DeptName})/Sum ({@TotalCost}, {SSRpt_JobCostFinalJobsnrw.JobNo})

RE: Crystal Reports line suppress by formula value

What's the content of {@TotalCost}? If you are able to right click on it an insert a sum on it at the department level, do that. Then go to report->sort groups->and select sum of {@TotalCost}->and choose top 1. (Since the top sum will provide the highest percent.)
