  • 4. Exporting in ASP.NET
    I've been working on a reporting module dealing with crystal reports for .NET 2003 and have a deployment issue. It all works fine on my localhost exporting to word, pdf, html, and using the crystal viewer. When I deploy to the 2k server to test, the crystal viewer still works, but the pdf, word, and html exports don't work when tyring to access from a pc besides the actual server. However if you run to app from the actual server it runs fine. It's seems like some kind of persmissions issue since temporary files and folders are created. any solutions?? Thanks in advance! .

Export to PDF - Smaller Fonts - Known Issue

Postby Mythran » Sat, 26 Jul 2008 05:59:53 GMT

We develop our applications and reports using Visual Studio 2008 with 
Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008.  The same issue that's been 
around for years, where you export a report to PDF and during the export 
process, CR shrinks the fonts of text and field objects on the report. 
Simply put, this is overly annoying.  Now that we've upgraded our 
application to use VS2008 (from VS2003).

When we use larger fonts, the font size appear (but upon closer inspection, 
are not exactly) very close to the right size, but they are not.  Not only 
that, the size of the fields in question still shrink!  The field width 
shrinks but the font does not....so, either we have smaller font sizes that 
really makes the reports look ugly, or larger font sizes with LOTS of 
clipping of the text within the object.

How can we get around this to where the exported report actually looks like 
the report in the designer?  #1, we have to use crystal reports and #2, we 
have to export to PDF....

As a side question, why hasn't BO fixed this problem?  It's been a known 
problem for many years...they had a hotfix which fixed it by truncating 
text....but in the designer, the text fits perfectly...so they provided a 
hotfix for the hotfix which just removes the previous hotfix and the 
developer is back to square 1!  This is a hurdle that stinks....

1.Reducing to small fonts aligns PDF document to left producing same number of pages

we are generating a PDF document using cystal reports.

The problem we have is PDF document is printing the same number of pages
with lots of spaces in the right side of the document when font size is

my boss was asking to generate the reports in 4 pages instead of 5 pages,so
i reduced the font size of the fields in crystal report designer and
generated a report.

But the report reduced the font size to Small and aligned the content to the
left bringing back the information to 5 pages,So Lots of Spaces were placed
in the right.

Could any one help me in solving this issue.


2.export to pdf font changes

I created a report in an asp.net application which should be exported
to pdf.
If the webapplication is running locally on my pc it works fine. On
the server the pdf is generated but the used font seems to be bigger
and therefore doesn't fit the page anymore. It contains exactly the
same data. I also installed the webapplication on someone elses pc and
there the generated PDF contains yet another font size...

Used Font: Arial Narrow 6 pts.

Do you know what could be causing this? 
It's very urgent...
