Exporting Report Definition Error

I am using Crystal Reports 2008 with a SQL database. I have been able to successfully export the Report Definitions for 24 reports, but one report continually returns an error message stating, "Failed to export the report." Has anyone else experienced this and found a resolution?

    Hi Jeanann,

    First time I've heard of that..... Can you edit the report and start removing parts to see what CR is complaining about?

    Start with subreports first and then whole sections until you find the source. It could be unused tables also, remove any tables that are not used in the report also.

    Thank you

    Don

      Hi Don,

      Thanks so much for the advice. It's odd, but I removed one unused table from one subreport and that worked. Prior to that I had removed the same unused table from the main report, and then from each of the other subreports with no luck. There was just something in this particular subreport that didn't agree with the unused table...

      Thanks again!

      Jeanann

    Actually, I was wrong. I exported the report definition for the subreport, but it still doesn't work for the main report. I did find, however, that when I delete just that subreport, the report definition DOES export for the main report. I'm trying to figure out the difference between that subreport and the others, but am not having much luck.
