How Do I Display a Number as the Same Number of Characters in Crystal Reports?

Over the last couple of weeks I have had a number of clients asking "How Do I Display a Numerical value in a field as the same number of characters?" in various versions of Crystal Reports


Crystal Reports has a function called ReplicateString, that allows deisgners to display the value in a numerical field as the same number of characters.

This function has 2 arguments:
  • str -The text string to be replicated.
  • #copies - The whole number representing the number of times str is to be replicated.


ReplicateString(Chrw(0098), {Tablename.Fieldname})
