Crystal Report 2016 - Some field in reports are not shown in Chinese Characters



We are using crystal report 2016. When crystal report is exported in text format then we are not seeing Chinese characters. The formula field that display "Chinese" characters in report is linked with view in database.

It seems that Crystal Report exporting to ASCII format and hence not able to display these characters. Please provide us a mechanism to export text report in unicode format.

Could you let us know how to specify Unicode option in following code so that exported text is in unicode format may be UTF-8.

if (FileExt.ToLower() == ".txt")


Options.ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.Text;

TextFormatOptions options= ExportOptions.CreateTextFormatOptions();

options.LinesPerPage = LINES_PER_PAGE;

options.CharactersPerInch = CHARS_PER_INCH;

Options.ExportFormatOptions = options;
