Using DISTINCT with CrystalReports7

Using DISTINCT with CrystalReports7

Using DISTINCT with CrystalReports7


I'm using Crystal report 7 and need a way to omit duplicate rows.

This sounds easy but I can't seem to find a place to do this in crystal.

Either on the Group or Record leave, how do I tell crystal I don't want duplicates of a certain field?  It is throwing off an averaging function.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

RE: Using DISTINCT with CrystalReports7

Here's a cheat if you're using a SQL database, in general you should post technical information when requesting it.

Database->Show SQL Query

Copy the entire SQL

Now add to the existing SQL's Where clause:

1 = 0

Now under the existing SQL place the word UNION

Now paste in the SQL you'd copied

Add the word distinct after the word Select in the SQL you pasted.
