Hi I'm a simple soul and after much frustration with record selection formulas when they started being set to "", have been successfully working around this by using the .DataDefinition.RecordSelectionFormulaRaw alternative. I'm using Visual Studio 2015.

After several months I find that sub-reports record selection formula aren't being set correctly either, but the

Hi Derek,

Code should look like this:

// Record selection formula with comments included can only be retrieve via RAS
CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.ISCRFilter myRecordSelectionWithComments; // = new CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.;
myRecordSelectionWithComments = rptClientDoc.DataDefController.DataDefinition.RecordFilter;
if (myRecordSelectionWithComments.FreeEditingText != null)
//myRecordSelectionWithComments.FreeEditingText = rptClientDoc.DataDefController.RecordFilterController.GetFormulaText();
btnRecordSelectionForm.Text = "\nWith Comments:\n" + myRecordSelectionWithComments.FreeEditingText.ToString();
btnRecordSelectionForm.AppendText("\nWithout Comments:\n" + rpt.RecordSelectionFormula.ToString());
//myRecordSelectionWithComments.FreeEditingText = "{TStat.TArt_Cod} = \"A823/001\"";
//rpt.RecordSelectionFormula = "{TStat.TArt_Cod} = \"A823/001\"";
//IsRpt = false;
btnRecordSelectionForm.Text = "No Record Selection formula";

If using RAS to alter the formula you need to set the viewer to the RAS object
