Crystal Report export to MS Word creates big files


Hi all,

if I export a report to pdf the file size is 72 KB . But if I export to Microsoft Word (97-2003) format, the filesize amounts to 1,35 MB.

After I opened the exported document in MS Word and saved it with a new name, the size is only 176 KB.

Is this a common problem? Is it possible to force crystal reports produce a smaller document?

Why does Crystal Reports create such large files?

(Environment: Crystal Reports 2008 SP1)

Regards, Timo
