Hi i am generating a report using crystal reports XI and vb.net 2003
the report has to be in pdf
so i create and align a very simple report on crystal
all the fields have the same font size, same heigh and are align vertical to the top
but when i use the code to export to PDF  and them open the PDF file
the fields are unalign one up and one down
if you see the 2 images one "vista crystal.jpg" the 25.000 are align with the USD
and in the file "vista pdf.jpg" the 25.000 is not align with the usd
why that happend?

my crystal version is 11.5.8.826
and visual studio 2003

Try aligning the bottom of the firlds rather than the top.

Not sure why, but sometines the alignment of data fields compared to formulae / summary's only works of you align bottoms

Are you exporting the report to PDF from CR XI or from your program?

 If it's your program, have you tried exporting to PDF from within CR XI?  Does it come out the same way?

 When you view the report in CR XI and export it to PDF from your program, are you doing both from the same computer?

 If you're using different computers, does the second computer (where you're running your program) have the same printer drivers installed as the computer that's running CR XI?  CR uses the printer drivers to prepare the report output.  I'm not sure if this applies to PDF exports, but for displaying or printing a report, if the same printer drivers are not available, the report output can be affected in various ways (wrong font, wrong page size, etc.).

If the image printer is set as default it would use that one.

Are you exporting from code in VB or through the viewer?

Viewers can also affect the display since they use different algorithms to display the reports

If you're running CR and your code on the same computer, then if the printer, or lack of printer, were a factor, I'd think that it would affect both in the same way, unless, as mlmcc suggested, there was another factor involved.
