"Text on a Path" in a Crystal Report.

Hi. I am extremely green when it comes to Crystal Reports but I am hoping someone out there will know if it can provide a report output with "text on a path". In particular, we query and sort data in our database and then provide custom workorders to our manufacturing floor specific to customer and model ordered. This work order must have text written in circular fashion such that you can do in Photoshop and other graphic programs. Our only way around it to date is to use AutoCAD's AutoLisp programming language to create the circle element and then use a radial array feature to put the text characters around that phantom circle. AutoLisp is combersome and since all of our other manufacturing information is in the SQL database it would be simplest just to create a Crystal Report.....IF of course it can provide the text on a path feature.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks.
