Problem with Crystal Report XI and Regional Settings

Dear All,

I am working on Crystal Report XI under Chinese Windows 2000 Professional and Chinese Visual Foxpro 9.0.

I created a User defined Function Library under VFP9.0 as an ActiveX with a function that return a String. I could saw the function in CR XI and the function works fine when returning English. When the function returning a Chinese String, CR XI gives different result. The Chinese text returned from the function only works when my regional settings (control panel -> regional settings) is set to Chinese Taiwan otherwise it shows "??????".

It is queer, the text object always correct, shows Chinese text, no matter what regional settings is. I did try my best in VFP to convert the string to double byte, unicode, etc but it stilll doesn't work.

Could anyone help me please. Thank you.

    I believe the issue is due to the fact that UFLs in CR XI are not Unicode compliant. The only way to make these work as per your requirement, would be to use the MS Arial Unicode font.
