    Posted: 21 Apr 2009 at 12:50pm
I grouped my report based on the Client Numbers. Client number is a String, but was converted to number format. I could remove the decimals on Group name, but I still see them on the Toggle Group Tree. I am not sure how to change that format.
 
Any thoughts on how I should remove them.
 
Thanks in advance!

Under File > Options > Fields Tab
Click on Number
Select NUmber Tab.
Change the default here to to what you want it to look like.

Dblank, your suggestion works when I preview the report on crystal, but I could still see the decimals on group tree when I preview the report from Crystal viewer. Not sure how to get those go away!!

You may be stuck with having to use them as a string with the viewer...
Why did you convert from a string to numeric to begin with? Any reason that precludes the use of a string?

Well, the client numbers that we use are not always numeric. Like, they could be 10.0001 or AAA.0003.
 
In my report, I am grouping only client numbers with numeric values though!

How are you excluding the non numeric ones?

I have the files divided into two categories on all reports. Numeric falls under cat1, and non-numberic under cat2. So, I group these numeric files based on formula Int(Val(tablename.filenumber)) and when user chooses cat1 files, they only see this grouping. Hope I am clear!

Gotcha.
In that case your select statement is independent of the conversion of string to an int so why not just leave it as a string and group on it. This will elminate the trailing .00...

I tried doing that, and now I see each file under its own group. Thanks for your continued support!
