Prime Filename and Type in Crystal Report Viewer

Hello Experts,

We are generating a report from SATRLiMS application (10.5.117) version that loads the Crystal runtime with a title, the report, filter, etc. We are using ‘SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine for .NET Framework 4’, version

After generation of report in crystal report viewer the filename is not getting primed when we go to export. End-users require to enter in a filename everytime now.😔

We have heard that this is not possible with the version 13.0 of CR runtime engine. It might be nice to have a property to the viewer control to prime the filename field in the export file save dialog.

can you suggest if higher version or lower version of CR runtime engine will allow us to primed the name of file from header like (PDF , Word etc. provides) OR any other way ??

Thanks for suggestions in advance !

    First, make sure you are using SP 12 - your version will be 13.0.12.x. See SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio Updates & Runtime Downloads for download links. Make sure you use the install exe on your dev computer, not any of the runtime files (MSI / MSM, etc). And see this KBA:
