ok,
here is the soloution:
1. about the memo field. crystal reports cann't use a memo field for a formula try creating a view/query woth the to_char statment so the crystal reports user this memo field as a string field.

2. about the replication.maby u attached a table with a forien key to the main table and crystal reports is reading from the second table instead of the first one.
try to created a view\query of the fileds u need for the crystal reports and put a distinct in the select cluase.
