  • 1. Crystal 10 Export to fixed text file
    (bows head in humility) I have a problem. After days of research and experimenting, I cannot get Crystal 10 to export to a .txt file without losing my data. I tried each and every type of export format and none of them worked. I came close when I exported to Excel, sized each column, and exported to a .prn file, but my file was too large and cut of about 3/4 of the way through. This is for an interface carrying a masive amount of data (to large for any printer page sizes given in Crystal). Therefore, I must shrink each field and formula so that I can fit them all. Everytime I try to export them directly from Crystal, I only get the portion of the field that is visible in the actual report...whereas, when I export to Excel, I get the full field, but still cannot find a way to export / translate to a flat text file. I am desperate...any help will be greatly appreciated. (P.S. the calculation logic required for the interface are well beyond SQL expressions so a SQL solution is not an option)
  • 2. Html Drill down
    just tried to export a drill-down report to HTML in Crystal Reports 9. However, CR just produced the main page with chart. but none of the bars in the charts were clickable. Is there some way to preserve the drill-down functionality when exporting a report to HTML (so that the links in the report become linked text in html)? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  • 3. Crystal not returning any data
    I would like to return records based on the contents of a notes \ memo field, when I run a sql query the required data is returned without a problem. However crystal doesnt return anything. Below is the selection formula in question: ({CONTHIST.CREATEON} IN {?StartDate} TO {?EndDate}) AND ({CONTHIST.REF} like "Ascertain 1st interview%" OR {CONTHIST.REF} like "Ascertain 2nd Interview%" OR {CONTHIST.REF} like "Ascertain 3rd Interview%") When I cut and paste the SQL from Crystal into SQL Query analyser the data is returned without a problem. Is Crystal able to search on a memo field? Is there anything Im doing wrong? Thanks

Respected Sir / Madam,

comes along with the .Net 2003 package for my Reporting Purpose. I have a 
problem in printing the reports when it comes to printing it in a Custom 
Paper size. The paper size that i use is  10in x 12in. I have set the paper 
size in the printer using the server properties in the Control panel. I am 
not able to set the paper size in the coding part as we usually do using the 

It shows only the Names of the paper that it supports. how to i Set the 
paper size to 10in x 12in.  Everytime otherwise i have to go to the Advanced 
properties in the print dialog box ,that pops up when we click the print 
button in the viewer, set the paper size which is defaulted to Letter and 
then print it. 

I would be really GRATEFUL if any of u can help me out in this problem.

5.Printing on a Custom Paper Size


I want to programatically set the paper size of a print document. I created 
a class that inherits PrintDocument, so I can print some database records on 
8" x 10" paper.

I added this line to my class constructor:

Dim customPaperSize As New Printing.PaperSize("8x10", 800, 1000)

But now I am looking for the proper code lines so that any instance of my 
class sends the proper size information to the printer, without user 
intervention. How do I do it with VB.NET (with .NET 2.0)?

Thank you in advance,
