If GroupName not starts with then sum

If GroupName not starts with then sum

If GroupName not starts with then sum

Basically, I am trying to sum a field in Crystal and it is not working. I am placing it in the Report Footer. If the groupname SalespersonNo is not like ZZ* then sum the extension amount.
if not ((GroupName ({AR_Customer.SalespersonNo})like "ZZ*")) then Sum ({AR_InvoiceHistoryDetail.ExtensionAmt}, {AR_Customer.SalespersonNo})

Can someone tell me what is wrong please?

Thanks so much.

RE: If GroupName not starts with then sum

What is happening (that is wrong)?

RE: If GroupName not starts with then sum

It gives me total of 0 and should be a value > than 0. But this is not urgent now. thanks.

RE: If GroupName not starts with then sum

Using a Group formula in the report footer won't work.

One option is to use a running total summing the Extension Amount, evaluating on the formula:


Not{AR_Customer.SalespersonNo} like "ZZ*") 

Altenratively, create a formula like the following, and use a Summary to sum it:


If 	Not ({AR_Customer.SalespersonNo} like "ZZ*") 
Then 	{AR_InvoiceHistoryDetail.ExtensionAmt} 

Hope this helps
