    Posted: 27 Mar 2009 at 6:38am
I have a formula that is inserting a "1" into the report if a job is a "warranty" job.  This formula is working.  Now, I want the "sum" of those items on the report.  Crystal 2008 is not letting me do it.
 
The name of this formula is "Warranty"  It is working.
if GroupName ({WORK_ORDER.LOT_ID}) = "W" then 1
 
I created a second formula called "Warranty Count."  The formula that I attempted to use to "sum" the "1" totals is
 
if {@Warranty} = 1 then Sum ({@Warranty})
 
Crystal 2008 is giving me an error, "This field cannot be summarized."  I also tried
 
if {@Warranty} = 1 then Count ({@Warranty})
 
Also tried
 
Sum ( {@Warranty})
 
Same error, "This field cannot be summarized." 
 
Also, I cannot right click and "INSERT SUMMARY" into the report.  Crystal 2008 is not allowing it for this particular scenarios.  
 
 
 Any help is appreciated!

What if you try declaring a variable where you assign the 1...
 
 
something like
 
 
shared numberVar x;
 
if GroupName ({WORK_ORDER.LOT_ID}) = "W" 
        x := x + 1;
        1
 
 
Then you would need to add two other formulas, one setting the x variable to zero and putting in the appropriate place on the report.  and then another one with just the value of x to give you the sum.
