Formula to provide a varaible the total value for a group


I need to create a formula which outputs the value for a single group. For example, two groups are:

Group: Year

Group: Products

I only need to place in the footer the total for year 2012, product jam. The report contains dteails for many products and years.

Any one help me with this formula?

    Hi Leo,

    Create this formula and place it on the Group Header 2. You may suppress this formula as we don't really need to display it.


    numbervar summ;

    if {Year} = 2012 and {Product} = "Jam" then

    summ := Sum ({Product}, {Year}))

    Note. If the {Year} field is a date field, then you need to use a function to extract the year like:

    Year({Year_field}) = 2012

    Create another formula to display the sum and Place it on the Report Footer:


    numbervar summ;

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Leo,

    take a look at the option to create Running Total in Crystal Reports.

    it also allows you to put in a logic which numbers should be totaled together.
