    Posted: 28 Apr 2010 at 10:03am
Is there any way to limit the character size on a group name?  My report is being grouped by:   Group #1 Name: DataTable1.Fund[Fund](String)

i'm trying to put the following formula to limit character size on it:

Left({DataTable1.Fund},26)


Is there any way to do this???

The formula appears to be correct.  What is the issue?

This would work if it was a normal field--however when i put this in my report as a formula field, i am not able to keep the same groupings i had before.  In this report, things are grouped by Fund name. 

THerefore, is there any way to keep grouping and apply this formula?

Are you grouping by the field or the formula?  If you are grouping by the field, delete the group name in the header and replace it with the formula.  If you are grouping by the formula, then that can be an issue.  I am not sure if there is a solution.
