Hi,
  Also try this method.
  In Report Designer, go to file, options, Layout. Set the Preview pages option to Full Size (100%). yours must be set to 'Fit Width'. thats why its trying to fit the width and reducing to 69%.

hi,
u need to have a crystal report viewer control in your form to enable you to hardcode the option of .zoom = 100
".zoom" is one of the crystal report viewer control properties, not crystal report control properties.
Not yet tested using version 8.5, but i could set the option .zoom = 100 in version 8.0 and 9.0. of the crystal report.

hi, dun know whether this would help or not.

www.avdf.com/jan98/art_vb003.html

wat it does is try to make the preview is in a new form and set the forms' property windowstate to maximized.

I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Are you calling all the reports in the same way?

Is the ZOOM enabled on all reports?

There is an option in the report for how big to open it.
Open Crystal (no report)
Click FILE --> OPTIONS
In CR7 one of the frames on the top tab is PREVIEW PAGES
Click OPEN FULL SIZE

Close Crystal

You may have to adjust some of the reports
Open each report
Click FILE --> REPORT OPTIONS
In CR7 one of the options is PREVIEW PAGES START WITH
Select FULL SIZE
