Date field displaying ????

Post Author: Aman

CA Forum: Crystal Reports

Hello Everyone,

I'm using CR9. I have two questions.

First, In my date field; most of the report has good dates and the date field displays the date; however, some of the items does not have a date, therefore, instead of having a blank space it displays ?????. How can I supress if no date? See example below

02/02/2008 01/15/2008

??;??;????;??;??;????;??;??;????

Second, the same field with good dates also contain questions marks ??? following each date value and in some fields the date is displayed two to three times following eachother in the same fields. How can i fix this? See example below

02/15/2007;??;??;????;??;??;????

01/05/2008;01/05/2008;??;??;????

02/21/2008;??;??;????;??;??;????

The first issue/example is part of the second issue so if we can solve the second issue.

Thank you so much for your help/advice in advance...

    Do you really have a date field? What field type does it show in the field explorer? (right click, show field type)
