Crystal Reports - Export dropdown only offers 97-2000 options, missing newer version option

I am using crystal reports XI and I only see option to export to Excel 97-2000.  I thought I should have newer versions available.  At least Excel 2003.  What can I do to have this option available to my users.

Also, does anyone know how to popup a progressbar as the report is loading?
I have seen port to set enableprogressbar=true but I don't seem to have that option available.

Do you have Office 2003 installed?
I have Office 2007 and I only show the 97-2000 Excel option

There is no option yet for MSOffice 2007 - it is added in CR2010

As far as I knpw there is no CR progress bar.

yes I have office 2003 installed.  A 2003 option will be fine...97-2000 just seems way to outdated to give as the only option.  How do I get it to automatically show up in export module dropdown

I don't know if there is one or not.

The only reference I can find to Excel 2003 is an article on trouble exporting and they show the option then as 97-2003.

Do you have Release1 or 2 of CR XI.
Check the version in HELP --> ABOUT CRYSTAL
CR XI R1 is 11.0.x.xxxx
CR XI R2 is 11.5.x.xxxx

Apparently the latest service pack for CR XI R2 (SP6) supports Office 2007.

I have determined that support for export to 2007 office products is not available from Crystal.  Even in the new 2008 version only exports to office 2003.

I believe Office 2007 export is added with VS2010.
