Insert RTF file in Crystal Report

Hi,
I want to display formatted text in Crystal Report. I tried to pass rtf text to parameter field and it works, but the length of text is too small (parameter field accept only 254 characters).
So I need something else. Can I insert RTF File from local machine to Crystal Report ?

Please help me...

It is my understanding that CR.Net is built on the CR9 engine though it may have different limitations.

What version of Crystal.  Versions CR8.5 and before are limited to 255 characters in a string for formulas and parameters.  Can you insert the rtf into a database and use it as a field in the report?

Crystal 9 can handle longer strings.  As I recall it is in the neighborhood of 64kb.

I'm using Crystal Report for .Net. I don’t know what is the limit of parameter field in this version of Crystal Report (I search the internet and I didn’t find anything). But I know that when I try to pass larger text, I get this error:
"Value does not fall within the expected range"
