OLE Objects in a crystal report are reduced in size when exporting to word editable


Hi Forum

I have a question and am wondering if any other users have experienced something similar or have an answer

We have a customer who has a report. The report contains a header logo and a footer containing an OLE object that fits accross the whole page in crystal

When the user exports the report to rtf the ole objects are rendered correctly.

When the user exports to Word they are rendered ok.

When the user exports the report to Word Editable the OLE objects are reduced in size by about 50%.

Is this a known issue can someone explain if there is an issue during the rendering to word Editable formats


The Word Editable resultant file is 12mb where the Word file is 250kb

I have save the editable as docx to get the file down to a sensible size to import.

I have saved teh images of the resultant exports. See attached

With Kind Regards

Paul Marks
