Reports hide data lines in footer or header

Hi there,

not sure this is the right section. But I'll try anyhow.

We recently moved our reports from VS2005 to VS2010. The reports worked fine with the old redist package at our clients systems.

Since we migrated to the new development environment and the new redist 13 on the clients systems it seems as if page footers are swalloing up data.

Specificly a invoice document with several positions. if the number of invoice positions is to large to fit on one page, it prints to the bottom of the page, then the footer (which contains a blob field for footer pictures) and continues on the next page. the problem is that between the last row on the first page and the first row of the second page "lines" are missing. No changes have been made to the section expert settings what so ever since the migration.

Pointers into the direction of what might be the problem would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

    Make sure you are using SP1:

    SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads [original link is broken]

    If SP1 does not help, a link to a screenshot will be good to have to see the issue.

      Thanks for your help. The problem is that after the Data is set to the report a lot of sub reports, groupings and other fields and formats are set by the c# code. It is almost impossible to provide you with a report that works without the c# code running over it to look exactly like the one saved in the report viewer with the data.

      after some more testing to find a work around we figured that as soon as we use the "page N of M" field or totalPageCount field anywhere in the report, the lines start to disappear in the report. if we don't use it, it works just fine.

      -Update- After we removed the totalPageCount it works for displaying in the viewer, saving it to different file formats without the viewer. Only if you print it directly without the going through the viewer it still hides lines. 3-4 lines. I am still absolutely puzzled what actually causes this.

      -Update- We opened a single Support case with Crystal Report Support. Let's see what happens
