    Posted: 10 Sep 2009 at 2:08am
Hi All,
 
I'm trying to return just the maximum date < paramater, but m getting issues, it is sayiong a boolean is required here.  The formulae I'm using is maximum ({HIST_TPPAPOSITION.ACCESS_STAMP}).  I imagine it's simple to solve, but I can't get it to work in the record selction formula editor.
 
Can anyone help.
 
Thanks

Sounds like you placed the
"maximum ({HIST_TPPAPOSITION.ACCESS_STAMP})"
in the select expert and not in a formula field.
If you are trying to create a field that displays the maximum value of the Access_stamp Field from all rows in the report then in the field explorer add a new formula field and use your formula there.
You can then place that field in your report canvas.
Is that what you were trying to do?

Hi Thanks, that works in a formula and returns the max date for a given group.  However I need to just select the newest records for a given criteria/group.

You mean you want to limit the report data set of the report to the maximum date per group?
in the select expert clcik on the Show formula box.
There is a Group Selection toggle. Switch it ti group selection
put your group selection criteria in there
Maximum(date,group)
