Does the report display correctly in preview?

Crystal 8.5 doesn't fully support unicode.  You may need to upgrade to CR9 or use the Chinese version of CR8.5.

Yes, it displays correctly in the preview.

The report is generated on a Chinese OS already and the font used is already in MingLui.

Is that what I need is an export dll for converting chinese content into PDF file.

Are you using the CHinese version of CR8.5?

Thanks mlmcc!

I've updated to the CR10 recently and the Chinese content problem is solved.

I'm intergating CR by VB6, and need to batch export report into a PDF format. The content would contain some Hong Kong words. But this time I have a problem to display content that using Hong Kong fonts.

Do you have any suggestion?

I don't think CR supports Hong Kong fonts though I am not sure about that.  They don't have a Hong Kong version.

In CR9 they only support simplified chinese
