    HiI am having a very similar problem...I have a pie chart that is displaying 8 values for scores that make up the total score. If I preview the chart in Crystal XI, I get the correct colours for each slice of the pie, but when I save the rpt and run it from my VS2005 App, the first 4 colours on the pie revert back to the default 4 colours and the last 4 colours stay the same as what I set using the "Color Highlight" tab in the design env.Can anyone please help?

    not sure why CR does this but You could try using the custom colors options, you will need to experiment with the values to make sure your vs2005 App will support them. You could try copying color settings (Red, Green, Blue, Hue, etc....) from the App, and use those same settings in CR.

    Thats what I did use. I set the colors to the ones I wanted. I set them and if I preview that chart in CR its cool, but ass soon as I run the report in my app, the colors change to the default CR colors??? I am really frustrated with this and have been able to do nothing at all other than look for a solution for 2 days now, so if anyone knows how to get around this, please let me know.Thanks very much in advance
