Can Grow Greyed Out on DateTime Datatype Field

Hello,

I am new to Crystal Reports (Using Crystal Reports 2011) and building them via Database Objects.

I am creating a fairly simple report and want to change the Datatype of a Field to String ?

from what I read to be able to "Wrap Text" Via Can Grow CheckBox

Please Advise and Thank You in advance

    Hi Dequean,

    Create a formula with this code to convert datetime to string:

    ToText({Date time field}, "yyyy/MM/dd hh:mm:ss")

    One thing to help you with these basic questions is to first click the F1 key, it will open up the Designers Help file. If you still need help then try searching using Google, typically it will find the answer for you.
