    First thing is to upgrade to CR XI R2 for free...

    Use your R1 keycode to install it.

    Second, don't use the fonts with the @ sign in front of them, they are for rotating the characters 90 degrees as you have seen. Scroll down and use the real fonts.

    Also, moved your post to the report Design forum.
