displaying the same field more than once with different conditions

I'm trying to display the same field called {Start Date} more than once on a report, but with different conditional formatting for each one, and they are coming up blank. The conditions are using a seperate field called I created 3 different formulas to display the 3 different fields...see below: Formula #1: If = 10 then {start date}

Formula #2: If = 20 then {start date} Formula #3: If = 30 then {start date}

But when I try and display formulas #1,2, and 3 on the report they are all blank. I'm trying to display them side by side...see below:

[Formula #1] [Formula #2] [Formula #3]

Can anyone help me out with this?

    That means , your conditions are not satisfying anymore.' If' condition always returning 'false'

    So concentrate on 'condition' and check whether are returning the right value, which you are expecting!

      Since and {start date} are in the detail data records coming in, and you want to see them in the group header, you'll need to use aggregate functions (minimum, maximum, etc, depending on your requirements) on these fields in your formulas. The formulas, as they are written, only evaluate for the first record in the group (when placed on the group header format).
