Crystal report version 11 - object insert

Post Author: Marvel

CA Forum: Crystal Reports

I have inserted a multipage word document, How can I view the entire word document? It seems I can only see the first page. It does not make sense to me that you can insert an object but only view the first page. I am doing something wrong? Is there a setting to view all pages? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Marvel - some questions as much more information is needed:

    What section did you insert the document in to?

    Did you insert it as an OLE object or simply cut&paste the document text into a text object on the report?

    When you state you can't see the entire text/object, I assume this is in 'preview' mode. Have you attempted to export the report to PDF? What is/was the result?

    Has the text object been set as 'can grow' in the Format Editor?

    Chances are this is simply a quick fix and a little playing around, and quick research will resolve this. Post back the answers for these questions and I'm sure we'll have a prompt solution for you.

    I used the insert Ole object from the menu. I inserted the word doc into the detail section of the report.I used the Crystal Report viewer 11 to open the report and tried to print - it only printed one page. I then tried to export to pdf and only one page was exported.Marv

    An OLE Object is treated by Crystal Reports as an image type. Thus, it can't span more than one page, nor display more than one page. Some of the limitations really seem to be in Crystal Reports itself, however.

    Also note that OLE objects created from Word doc's will exclude header & footer information.

    What is the goal of your report? Is this to be something like a form report?
