I really appreciate your providing this tip to those of us who are chronically coming up against database problems like the one described.

I did change the char to chr for the version of Crystal I am using, but it works great!

Thanks so much!

Glad it was helpful. As you mentioned the syntax for Crystal differs slightly to that given in the T-SQL example.
