The Word documents that Crystal Reports create are hard or impossible to edit.
All the text fields are in "boxes" and it is hard to even just add a blank line or space.

Is there a formatting option in Word that I need to set or turn off to make it
more like a regular editable Word documet?

myReport.ExportOptions.ExportFormatType = CrystalDecisions.[Shared].ExportFormatType.WordForWindows
DiskOpts.DiskFileName = "C:\DCP\FileOne.doc"
myReport.ExportOptions.DestinationOptions = DiskOpts
