You cannot retain text formatting in an export to text.

Also as far as layout is concerned an export to text is converting from  variable pitch fonts into a fixed pitch font so you also lose the layout.

There is nothing you can do about this other than choose a different export format.

Well- to qualify the last point- I suppose if you designed your report using a fixed pitch font with all text the same size then it would export in the same layout.  But it's never going to happen is it.

Crystal can export to RTF.  WHy not just choose that format.

Text files don't have true formatting.

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by peter57r (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_27038059.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
