I'm running Crystal Reports 8.5 and I have a regular report etc. What I want to do is insert a word document and have the word document be the very first page to print out followed by the data in the report. How can I do this? I know I have to use OLE-insert in Crystal.

Thanks.

As far as I know you just insert an OLE object into the report and set its properties.

In Crystal the OLE object will only show the first page of the document.  If the document is multiple pages you won't be able to see pages 2-last page.

Mi Mlmcc,

 I got it working and the ole object is displayed on the first page only, and the rest of the data is displaying on page 2 etc. just like I need it. The only thing is that for some weird reason on page 2 where the data is displayed it starts displaying the data + header at 1 inch from the top, and pages 3+ displays the header and the data  a .5 inches from the top. How can I make all pages 2+ display the header and data at 1 inch from the top?

Thanks.

Make sure the report header isn't spilling onto page 2
