CR Dev. 8.5 cannot display UNICODE in Preview windows?
Posted on 2003-03-29
I found that Crystal Report Development Version 8.5 cannot display UNICODE characters under WIN2K/XP(both simplified and traditional chinese) in Preview Windows. But it can be printed properly. Cuurrenly, the regional setting of Win2K/XP is Chinese (Taiwan).
And it is very strange that it works fine under both Simplified & Traditional Chinese Win98SE.
I have tried to change the font in report designer to Chinese Font (since I used "Arial" before), but it required to specify code page (says CHINESE_BIG5). It displays properly in traditional UNICODE Chinese characters only, but not simplified UNICODE characters.
So, how can I display both traditional and simplified chinese UNICODE characters in Report Preview under Win2K/XP?
Here are my configuration :
-Crystal Report Development Edition 8.5 w/ SP1
-Using Report Designer Control in VB6 to design the report layout
