    What version of CR?

    What SDK?

    Does this report work in the CR designer?

    • Make sure you are on SP1 for "Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008" (CR 10.5):

      Also, couple of things that don't add up in your posts:

      1. Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer - this is normally the CR designer in the .NET IDE. Just want to confirm that this is where you get the issue and not in an actual app(?)
      2. I am using WPF- C# VS 2008. - CR 10.5 does not have a WPF viewer and using the CR WIN viewer for .NET Winforms in a WPF application is not supported. Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 is the only version of CR that has a WPF viewer.
