Exporting to PDF, fonts garbled (ArialMT)

HI

We need to use ArialMT for one of our Client's reports. I have loaded the fonts on my machine and the report displays correctly in the application itself, however when I export to pdf I get garbled fonts.
eg 50NNNNNNNNNNNN
in fact when I paste it in here it is different to how it is displayed in Adobe.

We are also running these reports through a reporting application we have built - web based and get the same result when exporting to pdf.

I guess it is something to do with embedding the fonts, however I have no idea how to do this from crystal.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

I found the answer actually.
Crystal can only export to pdf using True Type fonts, and the font we are using for the client is a PFB font file.
