In Crystal Reports selection formulas/select expert with formula field and parameter field together


I have this report that does not yield the same output from my crystal reports to ssrs due to below selection formula.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Is there any workaround on this combined formula of parameter and formula field i.e {@HomeCo} in {?Company}

@HomeCo as being ...

    then {view_EmpMaster_ca1.LABLEV4NM}

and {?Company} as being ...

select distinct COMP_ID,COMP_DESC
from COST_ALLON.dbo.COMP where COMP_ID NOT IN ('0110', '0610')



Workaround to using "Person or Group" field in a "Calculated" column formula?


Apparently, SharePoint does not allow you to insert a "Person or Group" column into a "Calculated" field's formula.

Is there a workaround to adding a "Person or Group" column into a "Calculated" field's formula?

-Maybe a way of coverting the data from the Person or Group column into a text field, and referencing that text field in the formula?

Microsoft mentions only Columns of the following data types can be referenced in a formula: single line of text, number, currency, date and time, choice, yes/no, and calculated.

Edit in Datasheet allows overwritting calculated field formula.



I discovered some unexpected behavoir while editing an item in a list while in Datasheet view.  I was able to overwrite a calculated field's value with a value I typed in.  I was shocked that I was able to even mouse into that caculated field's column.  When I changed the value for that field and tabbed off it, a message box appeared prompting me to preview the change and that the operation whould be timeconsuming.  I clicked "ok' to continue and discovered that each column in the table had changed to the value I entered for each row in existence.  If I go back into the list settings to see the formula for the calculated field, I notice that the formula has changed to equal the value I typed in Datasheet view.  This can't be good.


Here are some steps to reproduce.


1. create a list or document library

2. add/create a new column, select calculated field with some numberic formula eg = 3*4, be sure to select number as the return data type.

3. add a few new entries to the list or library.

4. select edit in datasheet.

5. attempt to edit the value of the calculated field with some numberic value.

6. you may be prompted for a username/password if the signed in

Individual field - MySQL



I was wondering how to recieve an individual field from my MySQL database.

I have been able to get a row, but what I am trying to do is get a name from my database and set it into the HeaderText in my DataGrid.

The way I am trying to do it at the moment is

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.Columns[0].HeaderText = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

This doesn't seem to get a value from the GetValue, but if use

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

it will bind my data into the grid.

I just want to be able to change the HeaderText in the first coulmn of the DataGrid from one table and have the DataGrid be filled from another table.

I can fill the DataGrid its just changing the HeaderText that I am having trouble with.

Any help?
