HTML Tags in Crystal


Hello All,

Since my replies were deleted for some unknown reason from the feature requests thread,

I Thought that i might be missing something and Maybe someone can shed some light on this issue for me...

We're using Sql Server 2008 to store our data, in some tables we're using varchar(max) as data type and we store huge HTMLs inside them.

unfortunately, crystal reports support text length only up to 65534, which give's us a big headache because we have to use our own workaround to cut these huge HTMLs in 65k chunks and yet make them look as if they were in one piece.

What we can't work around, is the lack of support in basic HTML Tags, such as <TABLE>.

every text that was originaly authored inside a table tag, will be stripped down from the table to a messed text...

Does anyone have a solution/workaround for this issue? we desperately need the ability to display this HTML element in the report, but for now we're unable to.

Please help, Thank you.
