Crystal Reports: Margins problem

I have a crystal report that prints OK when I send the report directly to
the printer. If i display the report on the screen and then click on the
print icon I get the first couple of characters of each line chopped off on
the printout.
(I am always printing on the same printer and using the same printer driver)

PS: I am using VS.NET 2003 and the version of crystal that ships along with
vs.net 2003

I have a problem with a C++ DCOM application that prints Crystal Reports with data from Oracle. The SQL query is relatively complex but when the report is printed from the Crystal Reports designer it shows up very fast.

Hi Group, I've got an interesting problem, I don't know if this is the right group but I think so because everything I've read about it so far says it's a .net problem. Here's the problem, we're using crystal reports 9 and vb.net and we're using the crystalrepotViewer to show our reports. But every time we open a report the connection to or sql server remains, so if I open 5 forms with the report viewer I've got 5 sleeping connections in...

I am using VB in VSNET 2003 and I have a project that includes some reports imported from Crystal Reports 10. Everything works fine but I need to change the margins at runtime and I can't find the way to do that. If my report is "ActiveReport" and I try the code: ActiveReport.PrintOptions.PageMargins.topMargin = 0.40 I get an error saying that the expression is a value and cannot be the target of expression

Hello all, I have created an ASP.NET website that uses Crystal Reports that works on the localhost (my PC), but when I copy it to the server it does not. The problem is ExcelUseConstantColumnWidth = False. On my PC when exporting a report, it works - columns are varible width to fit the field, from the server it does not - I get constant width columns. I suspect it is a DLL issue, but so far all my comparisons are coming out the same.
