Crystal Reports formula method

Crystal Reports formula method

GroupName just returns a string of. well, the current Group Name. This is either just the field you were grouping on, or is a value customized via the Group Expert > Options Change Group Options > Customize Group Name Field. Its whatever displays in the group tree.

If its not listed in the Crystal Reports Online Help, which is oddly the case with GroupName, then your best bet is some good, oldfashioned Googling. Im not sure of any resource other than commercial products that lists descriptions and usage instructions for all the functions, properties, etc.

When you group on a date, Crystal gives you options again in the Group Expert > Options as to how you want that date handled in the grouping such as for each day, for each week, for each month, etc. So when you reference the group in a formula, it not enough to just pass the field you grouping on. You need to also specify how you handling that field.
