Variable Fields/Values are not printing correctly on a Crystal check PDF in version 2011.

We are a Oracle PeopleSoft shop running Crystal 9 in our current production. We are in a process of upgrading our PeopleSoft Tools which requires latest version of Crystal run time. We are copying a Crystal 9 program to Crystal 2011. We also converted the Crystal 9 reports to Crystal 2011. The Text fields are remaining in the exact same location when we create a PDF Check file but the variable fields are not. The X,Y coordinates of the fields are exactly the same between the Crystal 9 and 2011 versions. The fonts and font sizes are the same. The variable fields in the 2011 version appear to line up with the text labels but in the Crystal 9 version the variable fields print a little higher than the labels. We are trying to figure out why the variable fields are not printing in the exact same location on the 2011 PDF as they do on the Crystal 9 PDF.

    Hi Mohammad,

    PeopleSoft was an OEM partner back then and I believe they used crpe32.dll as the reporting engine. As of CR 10 you can no longer use it.

    Only SDK option now is to upgrade to VS 2010 -> 2015 and use the CR for VS .NET assemblies which you can get from here:

    Lots of changes to CR Designer since version 9 so likely only option is to adjust the report.

    BE aware current versions of CR has dependencies on the printer driver, be sure to go to Page Setup and check on Dissociate option, that removes the specific dependency on the specific printer used in the report.

    For question regarding CR for VS post here:
