Crystal Reports Over the page repeat bug

This happens at random all the time. It's to do with where the final line is in relation to the margins - Which when you have autogrow fields you can never control.

Lets say the we have three columns: Description, Amount, Running total. Lets say the final line on the first page is 222.15 with a running total value of 75000.00, and the line after it is 800.57. When shown in the Viewer, it displays correctly. But when you print it out. The result is:

222.15 75000.00
-- Page Break --
222.15 75800.57
800.57 76601.14

Note: The first line of the new page repeats the last value of the previous page, but adds the next value onto the running total before adding it again the line after.

No, this isn't because of some crazy join in my data source - it displays on screen properly, then you stuff it up during the print. It's a MASSIVE bug in your system. The best work around we have is to slightly change the margins of the report and hope that there won't be a case where that causes the problem.

This honestly makes Crystal Reports completely unusable for financial reports because you can't rely on the data being accurate.

Go Here and get SP 21 and read the What's new section and see if that fixes the issue:

Also need to know what printer you are using, formatting engine is based on the default printer, it may be related.

Do you see the same issue in Crystal Designer for the same exact report?
Web or Winform?
Can you upload the rpt with saved data so we can replicate?
