Insert OLE >Word doc not showing all pages

Hi All,

I'm running a test on this before I get all involved in it.

I insert a multi page Word doc into my report.

When I run it, it only shows the first page.

That's the first problem.

When I export it as a Word doc, it exports only that page

and now it's become a non editable graphic.

I need it to be exportable to Word and editable.

That's the second problem.

Am I attempting the impossible ?

Thank you,

    the insert OLE object uses a .dll (3rd party) that will only insert one page. it'll never work for multi page objects like you're trying to do.

    so...why do you need to insert a word doc into crystal?...i.e. what are you trying to produce as the end goal?...i only ask as there could be another solution.

    • hey Jimmy,

      that's excellent news...and i think that there's a way to do this in excel so you don't have to keep exporting...via the Data tab and then the "From Other Sources" dialogue...should be a way of plugging a query into that via the "From Data Connection Wizard" and odbc...just to throw another process into the mix 😊

      have a great day,
