Reports preview very slow

CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL

We're moving our Crystal reports from the Crystal API to Crystal .Net classes. Eveything seems to work well except some reports preview painfully slow. Reports that are 20 pages can take over a minute to preview! Reports that are 100+pages don't preview in under 10 minutes!! Does anyone have any tips ideas on how to improve this?

One report for example is a timesheet report that is one record per page, it's mainly just a bunch of lines. So for example 4 records is four pages. When we preview this report it will take 20+seconds. If the report was 12 records it would take around a minute to preview.

We are using the push method of getting data to the reports. The reports are Crystall 11.
