Data field is in report,

Field name = Contact_No
Data Type = Number
Field Size = Double

In my opinion this cannot be so.
I think you should carefully check your data again and make sure that the field is being shown without any manipulation in say, a formula field,  in the report.

If you browse the data values what do you see?

I notice the tag says Crystal Report 7

Are you running the 16 or 32 bit version?
Probably need to be using the 32-bit version otherwise the numberis too big

I just built a quick databse and put the value in and it displays just fine in CR2008.

What data type does Crystal think it is?
It may be interpreting it as an integer

Has this data worked in the past?

I have no idea what limits CR 7 might have, but it does look like that number may just be too big for it.  If so, then if you can change the field to text/string, it seems like that should take care of it.

I suspect that this may be an issue arising from the backwards conversion of the Access database.
I'm pretty sure CR7 could handle A97 format databases  (I think even CR6 could do so even though it pre-dated Access 97).

If you have Access 97 available then you should create a new blank database and use File>GetExternalData to import all objects from your current mdb file into the new one.

If you change the field to text then Crystal will handle it properly.  One issue though is that it will then sort like text so 99 will come after 111

That's a good point, although, FWIW, I think that field may be a phone number.  If so, and if they're all 10 digits (US numbers that include the area code), then that shouldn't be a problem (assuming that you even wanted to sort by the phone number).  But I could be wrong about it being a phone number, or they might not all have 10 digits.  IAC, it's a good point to keep in mind.
