Crystal Reports - Cross Tabs & Exporting to RTF (Word 2014)



We are exporting our Crystal reports into .RTF files so they can be viewed in MS Word. When these files are opened in Word 2014 the file is shown to be in compatibility mode. If compatibility mode is removed the formatting of the cross tab is broken (all the table lines positioning on the page gets messed up).

This prevents the exported Crystal reports from being included in Word 2014 documents that are not set to run in compatibility mode.

Is there anything we can do to include the exported Cross tabs into Word 2014 documents that are not running in compatibility mode?

[Note: Its easy to reproduce the issue. Create a new report, add a cross tab, export the report to a word document, open word document, remove compatibility mode -> formatting broken]
