Crystal Reports - Data missing when exporting to PDF

P: n/a
In order to save typing, I've borrowed the text from a post of nearly 12
months ago.....but the problem still exists.

I've been banging my head all day with this, so I'm hoping someone has
some suggestions for me:

I'm trying to either print or export some Crystal Reports in asp.net
web application. The reports were made with CR 9.0, get their data
from an SQL Server 2000 database.

When I print or export to PDF, a bunch (but not all) of the fields are
skipped. I've
confirmed that the reports work fine in the viewer and designer, but
not when trying to view or export through vb.

I've tried three different reports and the only consistency I've
seen are:

1) Some fields are always skipped.
2) The same fields seem to be skipped.
3) The fields that populate properly are always coming from nvarchar
fields in the database, but not all fields like that work.
4) Forumla fields don't appear to populate.

Any hints or suggestions? Is it some report option or configuration
problem I haven't found?
Cheers,

CJ

Hello CJ

Did you apply service pack 2 for CR9 ?

Reab below :
ADAPT00102129 Patch ID: 35130937
Description:
When exporting a report that contains any large, dense
text objects or memo fields to PDF format, the right-hand
side of the objects
or fields is truncated in the resulting PDF document.
This problem occurs in both Crystal Reports 9.0 and
Crystal Reports .NET.
New Behavior:
The method of retrieving font metrics for text objects
was the cause of this problem. The method has been
modified such that it
retrieves a slightly smaller font size which, in turn,
enables the text to fit within the text object.

You can download it here :

and more information here :
