Working with the Formula Editor

There are two basic types of formulas. First, there are formula fields that you can insert in your report, which are usually enclosed in braces and prefixed by the @ symbol (for example, the {@SalesTax} shown in Figure 8-4. Second, there are formulas that appear behind the scenes, like those for record selection or conditional formatting. From these two distinct types, you can create thousands of different formulas, but, regardless of what you're working with, formulas are all created, debugged, and edited using the Crystal Reports Formula Editor.
