Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

It is easy to select records for a report based on a comparison of multiple database fields or calculated fields, if the steps below are followed:

  1. Select the "Edit Selection Formula" command from the Report menu. To compare a database field with a constant, for example, March-Sales > 300,000, it is easiest to use the "Select Records Expert".

    To compare fields with each other, for example, To select only those records where the March sales are higher than the February sales, then use the "Edit Selection Formula" command.
