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...

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"

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