crystal report with barcode installed inconsistent
Posted on 2009-07-09
I have 2 similar reports that use idautomation barcode font 128a in a formula field. The field is mapped to a sql field in the report database. The reports are embedded in designer in vb6 applications.
Report1 has no issues running on any machine as long as the fonts are installed. Report2 runs on 2 of 6 machines I've tested. On the other 2 I am getting the crystal report error "remaining text does not appear to be part of the formula" when it tries to open the report on 2 XP machines, 1 of these a brand new machine. Both of these machines can run Report1 without error.
The error is tracked to the formula field for the error. When I remove the formula, there is no error.
I have tried re-registering the CRUFLHD.dll, downloading and installing a new copy of the old version, and downloading and installing the latest version. No help.
It makes no sense to me why the same machine can one report with the same formula field and barcode font, but not crash on the barcode formula field on the other.
