Posted on 2002-05-02
Last Modified: 2012-08-13

My application uses VB and crystal reports control to create the reports. I am using CRViewer to display the report and i have also enabled the Export btton. But the problem is that the export options displays lots of options to export like ,.CSV, excel, word..etc.
How I would like to limit to only RTF options. i.e. when click on Export button only RTF option is to be displayed.

thanks in advance

The list is controlled by the CR export DLLs registered on the machine.  To limit it to only RTFs load only the RTF export DLL.

Look at

You can also look at the CR Runtime Help file.  Mine is located in
c:\Program Files\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Developer Files\Help.

Look under EXPORTING and Export Formats.  You will also need the files listed under Export Destinations

The only export dll you want on the machine is U2FRTF.DLL.

Hope this helps

U2fwordw.dll - For Word
U2fxls.dll - For Excel
U2frtf.dll - For RTF

and so on,

While distributing distribute only what is required.

So the list will be automatically limited.
