HTML Numbering tags.


I have a web application which uses an editor control. This control allows bold underline bulleting and numbering. Does Crystal XI R2 support these html tags or do I need to upgrade to 2008? I'm sure I've asked this before.

Many Thanks,

    Hello Roger

    Using the search string 'html crystal' (search box in top right corner) comes up with this KBAthat lists supported HTML tags in CR 2008 and CR 2011. Not a clue what was supported in CR XI R2

    Now, upgrading to CR 2008 or CR 2011 will work for you, if the app is written in .NET. If it uses the RDC (craxdrt.dll), then upgrading will be no use as the RDC was retired in CR XI R2.

    • Hi,

      I am using the following to print the reports :-

      Private rptCICPrint As New ReportDocument

      Private crConnectionInfo As New CrystalDecisions.Shared.ConnectionInfo

      Private crTableLogonInfo As New CrystalDecisions.Shared.TableLogOnInfo

      Private crDatabase As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Database

      Private crTables As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Tables

      Private crTable As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table

      Private crxFormulaFields As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FormulaFieldDefinitions

      Private crxFormulaField As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FormulaFieldDefinition

      Not sure if this is okay and will work by upgrading. I only really need to use the sorted numbering html tags.

      Is there another way to show number in Crystal reports? The reason I ask is because I should strip the html codes and replace them with something else.

      Thanks for getting back to me,

    I've just downloaded the trial for Crystal 2008 and yes it supports <ol><li> tags for numbering but if a line of text on say number 1 goes on to another line it does not format it. Is there anyway to have number which works like Microsoft Word?

    Many Thanks
