Placing multiple records on a single line (variables)

CA Forum: Formula

Hi, I am new to Crystal Reports, but I know Basic and other programming. I have Crystal Reports XI and am pulling data from our ERP/MRP system, Epicor Vista (Progress DB).I've been asked to figure out a Crystal Reports for our company (I get thrown into these projects). I know what the report should look like and I know how I would go about some VB code in a macro in Excel if all the data was in worksheets(i.e. like tables).Below is the data. Any help would be SO appreciated. So far I'm loving Crystal Reports and I can't wait to get some reports our company can start using but I'm stuck on understanding the timing and connection of formulas with the records.Table1 "JobMtl"Field "JobComplete":StringField "JobNum":StringTable2 "JobOper"Field "OpComplete":BooleanField "OprSeq":Number{JobMtl.JobComplete}FalseTrue{JobMtl.JobNum}20102011{JobOper.Complete}FalseTrue{JobOper.OprSeq}10203040Let's say I dragged all 4 fields into a report. It would look like this.JobNum JobComplete OprSeq OpComplete2010 False 10 True2010 False 20 True2010 False 30 False2010 False 40 False2011 False 10 True2011 False 20 False2011 False 30 FalseI would it to read like thisJobNum JobComplete PrevOp CurrOp NextOp2010 False 20 30 402011 False 10 20 30**Note: {JobMtl.JobComplete} will be used so I am only reporting jobs that are "not complete". I guess it means nothing to you guys, but I put it here because I was not sure if this will be involved in a formula.Thanks,AnthonyMy email is (replace "_at_" => "@") if you would a *.RPT with the data I've shown.
