Hi all,

I would like to be able to change the Title of my Bar Char using a formula. Is it possible?

The reason why I want to do this, is that my reports have to be multi-lingual. With a VB.Net winform my user will call my report and select the language in witch they want it.

    Not sure.  I don't think you can do that within Crystal itself but you may be able to get at the title from VB.Net.  I don't have VB.Net so I don't know for sure or even if it is possible.

    From what I've read there is no way to change that by code. Another CR XI flaw.

    I anyone found a workaround please let me know but for now.. it's a case close for me. I'll have to have 2 reports, one in english and one in french. Or try to remove the label from the chart and use a textbox with a formula in it.

    In your case you could have a single report with 2 chart.  Suppress one based on the language chosen or default on the machine.
