Crystal 9 RAS/ePortfolio Parameter Question

Hello,
I'm using Crystal Reports 9.0 with the Report Application Server SDK (stand-alone) and I have a report which filters for two parameters. I added approximately 80 default values for one of the parameters (breed of animal).  When run from inside Crystal, the parameter drop list shows all 80 default values.  When run through Internet Explorer (RAS/ePortfolio ) only the first 50 values are loaded into the drop list.  Is there any way to change the limit of 50 items in the drop list?

This is my first time using the Crystal RAS SDK, so please let me know if this is possible.  I'm in urgent need of an answer, so I assigned 500 points.

Thanks in advance,
-Jeffrey

I believe the limitation is actually with the viewer being used for the report because I had the same issue with Crystal Enterprise 9.  My research led me to conclude that there was no workaround however by changing to a different viewer I eliminated the problem.

I don't know if the RAS SDK allows you the option to use different viewers - if so then give that a try.  If I remember correctly it was the DHTML viewer that had this limitation and we switched to the ActiveX viewer to resolve it.

Could you explain the viewer briefly, it's a middle piece which the browser uses to render the report?

Thanks,

Yes, the viewer is the plug-in that actually renders the report in the browser.  If you have the possibility of using a different one you should give it a try.  I'm fairly certain you won't have an ActiveX viewer but you might have several DHTML / Java versions to choose from.
