I have the developer version of Crystal Reports XI and have published several crystal reports on web pages with Visual Studio Professional 2008.  One of these reports has text rotation set so the text shows up vertical.  When I preview the reports in Crystal Reports they look fine, but when I view them online in a CrystalReportViewer in Visual Studio, the text isn't rotated.  The more interesting fact is if I export the report that does not look good to Adobe it looks good again.  Is there a way to make the CrystalReportViewer present this vertical text properly or maybe at least export the rpt file automatically to a PDF or even a different viewer that will work?

I assume this is all on the same machine?

Did you use the CR XI veiewer in the VS application?
The VS version is based on CR10 and it is a limited version.  Iy is possible the viewer doesn't support rotated text.

mimcc The answer to your question is the the viewer  I am using is in fact the on that came with VS2008.  i do have a copy of the XI viewer I could use instead, but how do I reference that in the Web app?

I haven't used the .Net products so I am not sure.

There should be .Net assemblies in CR XI and you would add those just as you add other assemblies.

Actually I think I already have my Dll's pointing to a 11.5.3700.0 version of the DLL's for business objects.  If I remember correctly this is the DLL that was made for XI R2 to talk correctly to .Net.  I will look at the SAP web site to make sure there is not a more recent relese of the DLL for XI and Studio 2008.

That should be the one though there may be a new one for VS2008.

I am not sure a different DLL is the solution.  I found multiple web sites that actually describe this problem and one that mentioned that if I rendered it in another viewer that it would possible work (the export to PDF for example does).  

I found some code that I was able to use for the automatic export of the report to a PDF instead of the web page so for now that is my solution.  If anybody had a way to use a non HTML / DHTML viewer in internet explorer, and still have the ability to export please attach a code sample.
