LOV Limit in crystal

Hi All,

I am new to crystal development. I developed a new report with a BEx Query with some filters on query. But I am getting only 200 values in the LOV of parameter. I see some documentation to change the registry key in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Crystal Reports\ReportView

from 200 to 5000. I changed that, but still it did not take effect on my report. I restarted my crystal, but still it did not work.

Please help me in fixing this issue.

    Hi Rakesh,

    That's not the correct registry path. If you're on a 32-bit machine then browse to:

    HKEY\LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\SAP\BWQueryReportWrapper\MaxPickListSize

    If you're on a 64-bit machine, browse to:

    HKEY\LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\SAP\BWQueryReportWrapper\MaxPickListSize

    Change the value from 200 to 5000 or more.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Rakesh,

    The default number of values in a list is limited to 1000 records.

    This is, however, controlled by a registry key. To increase this limit, here's what you need to do:

    Open regedit and browse to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Crystal Reports\DatabaseOptions

    Create a new key (or folder) called 'LOV' here and then on the right-hand side create a new string value called 'MaxRowsetRecords' with a value higher than 1000, perhaps around 20000.

    Do this on the HKEY_LOCAL _MACHINE hive as well.

    and Adding to more

    In Crystal Reports Designer the list of values is limited and you can set the limit using a registry values.

    Look in the area of :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SAP BusinessObjects\....\SAP\BWQueryReportWrapper

    Where I entered "..." that is where you see a version number.

    When you publish / save the report to the server the list of values will be retrieved live.

    Hope this information will help you...
