formula syntax

Does anyone know of a good website that has crystal formula syntax?  I'm getting frustrated, and I really need a good resource.  I know that you can use vb syntax, but I'm just learning vb, too, sooooooo.....
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: formula syntax

Recent versions of Crystal allow you to use either the Crystal syntax, or Basic syntax.
The help has sample formulas with both syntax types for most functions.

RE: formula syntax

See my FAQ in the general forum on common formulas. I have several Crystal syntax examples.

RE: formula syntax


I have just written an faq on getting extra help on formulas in version 8 and up. This one might also be of help. it is a help file you can download which has errors and samples, etc.

An extra help file for creating formulas

hope this helps.

RE: formula syntax

Actually it seems to be exactly the same as the formulas help section that is part of the normal help file that ships with V8.5, and some of the information in this file is specific to V8.5, and does not apply to V8.0 and prior.
