    Posted: 22 Feb 2008 at 2:21am
I am trying to write a formula in Crystal 10 that only returns a text string when that text string contains the * character.  Any ideas on what syntax I should be using?
 
thanks

Try using this formula:
 
If InStr({table.field}, '*') > 0 then {table.field}

I want just the opposite of this, I want to exclude everything containing a *. How can I modify the formula for this?
