First thanks for all the HELP. I usually search and find what I need so this is my FIRST POST. I am an old dinosaur programmer (30 years of COBOL). Our dept finally came into the 21st century last year with Crystal Reports. ANYHOW, I have been wracking my pea brain trying to figure out how to do like "Next(Next(field))" - not the next field but the one AFTER the next field.
