Hi everybody,

has anybody an idea, how to realize this: "+new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM yyyy").format($P{MONTH_YEAR} -28)

in CR?

based on this java I think: new java.util.Date()

    Hi Eberhard,

    Below is the explanation for the code :

    "+new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM yyyy").format($P{MONTH_YEAR} -28)

    It is try to display the date in 'MMMM yyyy' format after manipulating MONTH_YEAR by reducing 28 days.

    so, formula would be :

    Totext((Month_Year)-28,"MMMM yyyy")

    Hi Eberhard,

    I cannot say for certain what that piece of Java code does, however, it seems to me that it displays dates in a particular format - in this case MMMM yyyy.

    The CR alternative for that would look like this:

    ToText({Date field}, 'MMMM yyyy')

    • Yes, you're almost correct.

      The Crosstab is set to display by month, however, the chart only seems to display a specific month.

      If the chart is supposed to display only a specific month, you'd need another crosstab with just that month's data. You can then insert a chart off of this crosstab and suppress the section that holds this new crosstab.
