Exporting a Crystal Report to a Word format

I am using Windows 2000 operating system to run an application written in VB using Crystal Reports 8.0.

After running the report, the normal procedure has been to export the Crystal Report into a .rtf file or .txt file.

Two (2) issues:

1.  The report has to be exported two times, in succession, to the same file name for the data to be exported.  If not, there will be 0 (zero) bytes in the file.

2.  After the new file has been created with data in the file and inserted into MS Word, the Word report heading is grayed out and the data is in textboxes.  After exporting a report into MS Word from Crystal Report, users would like manipulate the report as if it was created in MS Word.  How do you prevent the graying out and textboxes that housing each data item in the MS Word file.

P.S. Is this a bug or because Crystal Reports puts everything in an object (i.e., textboxes) and the textboxes exports over MS Word during the exporting process?  If so, how do you get rid of the textboxes and leave the data intact?

Thank you for any ideas.

2.  After the new file has been created with data in the file and inserted into MS Word, the Word report
heading is grayed out and the data is in textboxes.  

The report heading is just that a header and can be manipulated by selecting VIEW - HEADER/FOOTER from the Word menus.

An RTF is a special type of format used to include the graphics.

I have the option of exporting to a Word for Windows document.  Using that it exports just fine except the headings are still in the header/footer.

exported.  

I don't have this problem.  Do you have any special settings on the report such as save data with the report?
