Report - Work Center start-up time by date...?

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to Crystal Reports and am struggling to write a report for my company...

...I'm trying to create one that shows the daily work center start-up times.  The idea would be to have a "date parameter" that could enter any date in the past and show what time our work centers/machines start production in the morning.  I've tried using a few different tables/fields but I think I'm likely not linking something correctly.  If anyone has any tips/suggestions to help point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!!

    Hi Taylor,

    In one of your tables your company is maintaining work centers/machines start producution in the morning.

    Go in TOAD / Query Analyzer and use below to find which field it is ?

    Select * from TableName

    Once you have this information and the information is from multiple tables then try to join using Inner Join / left / Right outer join and see how you see records in your report.

      You won't "link" the parameter to any field in the report,  you will need to use the date parameter field to limit  ( restrict)  the result set of data that you are working with. 

      if you are working with data that comes directly from the tables,  you can to use the Report Select Expert     ( from the Report menu dropdown )  to create a formula   that says  essentually  ....  Give me all the data where the start time date is greater than the  date value of the  Parameter that begins the range wanted   ( and is less than the ending date range if you have one )      or if you are working with a select statement or a command to retrieve your data    you can incorporate the parameter  into the select command    just as if were a regular field.    and the same if the data source is a stored proceedure or view.
