CR8 to CR11, problem in export to PDF


im running a vb6 app with reports previously made in crystal report 8.

however, we have to convert them to crystal report 11 in order to utilize the export facility to pdf format during runtime.

unfortunately, i've got one particular report that has 8 sub-reports in it and it doesnt export at all.

the error i encounter is :

A summary has been specified on a non-recurring field.

Details : @CASAEqui_8

On the sub-reports this field exists as a formula :

tonumber(CASAEqui_8) //wherein CASAEqui_8 is a field in my Access table.

And on the footer for each sub-report a summary exists :

Summary of @CASAEqui_8

my data source is an ms access database (odbc connection).

previously using the cr8 viewer i can view this report, but when we shifted to cr11 thats when we started having problems.

can somebody please tell me what i am doing wrong ?

thanks in advance.
