"The sorting already exists" error when dynamically sorting Crystal Report


Hi All

Recently, we have migrated successfully from crystal report 9( vs2003) to crystal report 2011(vs2010).

After migrating, we are facing a peculiar problem in Crystal reports 2011. Problem is mentioned below:-

The application throw an exception 'the Sorting already exits' while generating the report.

I researched on this and found that this exception is coming when we try to set sorts dynamically (in application before generating) and the order of sorts in application are mismatched with the order present in rpt file. Its seems that Dynamic sorts are not working in CR 2011.

Any suggestion.

Is this is a crystal report run time, dot net or report issue?

NOTE :- We are using Crystal Report 2011 for design purpose and we are using Crystal report 2008 run time in application
