Ole Object in Crystal Report / InfoView

Posted on 2009-04-24

Hello Experts,

I have created a report using Crystal Reports 11.  There are several Ole object pictures in the report placed carefully near specfic text objects.  When I view the report on the InfoView website, the objects have moved and are no longer in proper alignment with the text.  I have tried selecting the option in Crystal Reports, 'Lock Position and Size' for the Ole objects and the text objects, but the objects are still moving.  Do you know of a way to keep the objects from moving?

Thank you for your help, Chopp

    Are you using a machine with the same printer driver?

    That is a good question.  I never printed the report, I only viewed it on the InfoView website.  But, if the printer driver on my computer is different than the printer driver on the server where InfoView lives, can that cause the difference in appearance when viewing?

    Yes.  Crystal uses the printer driver to render the report so changing printers can cause viewing differences.
