Displaying "Revision Number" in a report

We use Crystal's revision number as a means to help us track a problem one of our clients may be having with a report we have provided them for use by our application. Revision number is found in the Crystal file document summary File > Summary Info > Statistics tab.

Is there any method to have a Crystal report display this field. We are using Crystal-10 and Crystal-XI.

Thanks in advance for any help you might provide.

    Not what you want, but I just add a text box, and put the revision number in it.

    Now, you could use some of the "Special Fields", like file path and name, modification date, modification time.

    and just add them to the report ( At least these are automatic )

    File summary info, can also be used, ( but this is a manual update, if you need to change it )

    Comments and Titles can be pulled from this location, using a formula like this.

    ReportTitle &" "& ReportComments
