Hello everyone,
I have a report to generate which would contain around 25000 records and i am facing the ''Max processing time or Max records limit reached' error when generating it. Please help me solve this.

FYI: I have already gone through the EE database and have tried all the following things which has not solved it.

1) Click Start, point to Programs, point to Crystal Enterprise 9, and then click Crystal Configuration Manager.
Stop the Page Server service.
Right-click Crystal Page Server, click Properties, and then examine the Command field.
If maxDBResultRecords 0 is not included in the command, add the following to the end of this command text:
-maxDBResultRecords 0
Restart Crystal Page Server.

2) Going to the registry of crystal reports and increasing the max records entry of page server or making it -1(unlimited).

Please help me with a solution.

Thank you.
