1 Formula For Different Products

1 Formula For Different Products

1 Formula For Different Products

Using crystal version 14 with an MS SQL Table

This formula is going in the suppressed details section and then I have a summary in the group footer

I’m fairly certain I have done something like this before but today I just can’t get the syntax correct. Would appreciate your help. Wanting to have 1 formula to capture the sales dollars for 2 different products. I created this and it is erroring out.

My formula is:

IF {Acct#} = 272044716001 AND
{Product_#} in ["BP0021"] and
{Year} = 2019
{Sell Dollars}


{Acct#} = 272044050000 AND
{Product_#} in ["WE33"] and
{Year} = 2019
{Sell Dollars}

When I check the formula I’m told The remaining text does not appear to be part of the formula and highlights the last THEN {Sell Dollars}ELSE 0

What is the proper syntax for this assuming it can be done.


RE: 1 Formula For Different Products

Use this syntax:

acctno=123 and
) or
acctno=456 and
) and
Year=2019 then
Sales$ else

Thanks Lbass, as usual you are spot on.
