Making a special field, that selects from specific row and coloumn

0 Kudos

Hi people,

I've spend 6 hours now, trying to make a field which

selects from [Lines.No] = 1 - That is the row

and selects from [Lines.amount] - That is the column

and finally displays the number in that field times 1.25 (tax).

I'm a little used to SQL, but very new to crystal reports. I know the basics, but this is beyond me. It should be simple, but I'm throwing in the towel and asking you nice people for assistance. Please let me know if I need to explain my conundrum further.

That being said, I would still like to know how to do it. It would really help with tax calculation. It's super easy to do in VBA and SQL. I feel like it should be easy in Crystal Reports too.

Thx for the recommendations. I ended up finding another solution to my issue since I couldn't find an answer to my question.
