The Formula Workshop serves as a central area for building formulas in Crystal Reports. It is divided into two components: Formula Editor and Formula Expert. In this session, you’ll use the Formula Editor to build formulas using various resources such as data fields, pre-built functions, and operators. You’ll create formulas that perform calculations using number and date type fields, manipulate string data, and conditionally suppress and format report data. Finally, you’ll work with running-total fields that compute results based on conditions.
