I am passing a String of length greater than 254 characters. Crystal Reports 8.5 takes it as memo field and thus does not appear while I create a new formula. I want to solve this issue with Crystal 8.5 itself. How do I solve this issue?

Crystal 8.5 has an upper limit of 254 characters.

You cannot solve this issue in 8.5


Crystal 9 has an upper limit of about 2 Gig of character.   I suggest moving to CR9

If you are willing to use multiple strings/fields to accomplish your task you can always create an array of strings

and string[0] will hold character 1 to 254, string[1] will hold character 255 to 511, etc...


but that is really all you can do in CR 8.5 and below

Memo fields can be used in the report just not in formulas.
