Passing long string to parameter field
Posted on 2005-04-04
I have a Crystal Report (the one bundled with Visual Studio .NET 2003), that has a couple of parameter fields (no database stuff) and is working perfectly. I'm populating the parameter fields in runtime from VB.NET 2003. But I just realized that for one of the text parameter fields, if I pass it more than a certain amount of characters (I think 256 characters) it throws the following exception:
An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in crystaldecisions.crystalreports.engine.dll
Additional information: Value does not fall within the expected range.
Any idea how to overcome this problem? I have to send the parameter about a page worth of text.
