I am trying to export a cross-tab report from Crystal Reports 9 to Excel 2003 and when I do so the report exports with extra spacing and the page numbering is off. Help!

Thanks,
Datrice

Choose export option: MS Excel (Data Only) and enable the radio button Custom

When I choose (Data Only) I don't see an option for Custom?

Here is an article from Crystal explaining how to setup the report to export to Excel

Its not just custom it is:
Custom:Data is exported according to the selected options

you need to choose your export option as MS Excel 97-2000 (Data only) Export Options

There is an option for that. Refer to the article mlmcc sent:

http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/TechnicalPapers/scr_exportexcel.pdf.asp

I am using Crystal XI here. In XI it is:

File-->Export-->Report Export Option
and choose
MS Excel 97-2000 (Data only) XLS from the drop down.

It should be more or less same in version 9 too.

When I try that I get an Export dialog box that has a Format and Destination drop-down. I choose MS Excel 97-2000 (Data only) and Disk File for destination, ok. I then get a Excel Format Options box that gives me an option to change the column width, export page header and page footer, simplify page headings and use worksheet functions to represent subtotal fields in report.

As expected.  WHen you set those options as you desire and click OK do you get a spreadsheet created?

What errors?  If you mean the extra spaces and lines then you need to format the report according to the link above.
