Good morning,

We have just designed a new report to pull information from our SQL database server. I am able to pull the information correctly by setting a period and refreshing.

Problem occurs when i try and export "all" of this report to PDF. It will start to export and reach about 11% of completion and then the below error will appear.

Crystal Reports - String length is less than 0 or not an integer when exporting report.

I have tried exporting just the first few pages and have been sucessful. But doing an export on all pages brings up this error.

Please advise how I can resolve this problem. Im a bit of a noob when it comes to crystal reports, so step by step help would be most appreciated.

Many Thanks.

Additional Information:

Using Crystal Reports Version 11.0.0.895
Using SQL 2000

somewhere in your sql you are using string functions that
does not have correct parameters or string is null

for example
declare @str varchar(10)
set @str ='123'
select substring(@str,  1,charindex('4',@str)-1)

Crystall does not like nulls in strings

Try to run query you use in Crystal in SQL and see result set
