Here, give the formula name and click OK.


We can easily find our formula name by expanding the 'Formula Fields'.


After completing all the above process, we find a window on our screen, as shown below. Here, we see our report fields, formula name, formula functions, formula operators etc.

To write the formula, select and double click on the report fields, as shown in the image. Subsequently, we choose an operator, which we apply on the formulas.


We can save the formula, using the save option at the bottom of the page. Also check an error with the 'Error Checker' tab in the formula workshop. We can drag this formula to any section of the report.

Now, see the output. Go to Design in our report and drag the 'Formulas Name' by 'Field Explorer'.


Go to Preview and see our output.
