Control Record in Crystal Report 8.5

There is no such field as shipdtl.POLINE in my database, but I think
the syntax you are looking for is for not equal to "" would be <>"".

hello everyone!

I need help on controlling details being displayed in vantage.
My problem is that I want to display a POLINE field when the detail is
available but when it is not in the same section to display another
field called ORDERLINE. How do I go about it in Crystal Reports 8.5???

I have this so far:

if shipdtl.POLINE< " "(if the field is empty that is)
then shipdtl.POLINE
else shipdtl.ORDERLINE


I know the condition part for the IF statement is wrong, can someone
suggest how I can fix this problem???
How about IsNull for the test for nothing in the POLINE? The syntax is a little different than the usual If..then..else but it will result in a true/false state that can control which value is used.

hello everyone!

I need help on controlling details being displayed in vantage.
My problem is that I want to display a POLINE field when the detail is
available but when it is not in the same section to display another
field called ORDERLINE. How do I go about it in Crystal Reports 8.5???

I have this so far:

if shipdtl.POLINE< " "(if the field is empty that is)
then shipdtl.POLINE
else shipdtl.ORDERLINE


I know the condition part for the IF statement is wrong, can someone
suggest how I can fix this problem???
