Hi JRockFL,
This is for sure Crystal report problem. MAy be experts in that area can help.
I quickly searched for Crystal reports problem and here is what I find.

#  Crystal Reports Error 500 - Not Enough Memory for Operation

Versions: 16-bit and 32-bit Lifebase


The machine does not have enough resources to launch Crystal Reports and process the requested output. Typically this error is encountered when Lifebase abnormally terminates for an unrelated reason and the user tries to start a new Lifebase session with Crystal still in memory from the last session.


If youve recently encountered an error and Lifebase terminated abnormally, take note of the error(s) prior to the termination of the program and convey them back to the home office so that Network Microdesigns can investigate. Reboot your machine to avoid the Crystal Report Error 500. If this does not resolve the error 500, or you feel that you did not encounter any other errors, check the system requirements to make sure that your machine meets these requirements. Crystal Reports does require a large amount of system resources to run. Even though your machine may have a large amount of memory and free disk space, if you are using up those resources with other applications it is possible to get this error. Try running Lifebase with fewer or no applications loaded. Check the system tray in the lower right hand corner of the screen and terminate or remove any unnecessary applications. Make sure that you dont have two sessions of Lifebase up at once.


thsi sounds not the problem with ColdFusion, but it seems that may be something different with crystal report.
may be you need to check the settings of the crystal report...
