I have a report which used to be in crystal 6. The data is saved with the report and when crystal saves it, it is approx 1293 kb in size. I have converted the project to use crystal 10 and export it to pdf format. Now the pdf file is 16527 kb. I open both reports and they have the same number of pages. Another item is that some of the rows in the report are highlighted. Can this be the problem? Can some one tell me why the pdf file is so huge? Is there a way to make it not so large? Is it a setting before I actually say export in vb? The reports are going thru cdo messaging and they are taking forever. In  a little over an hour, only 30 out of 71 have been sent.

I suspect the size difference is due to the formatting information being stored.  Remember the report uses the CR application to recreate the formatting and only the data and 1 report format needs to be saved.  PDF saves the formatting for the entire report so it will most likely be larger.

What is cdo messaging?

Explanation is correct.  There really isn't any way (zipping maybe) to make the files smaller.
