In Crystal Reports, review your report formula's to see if you are using division, and alter them to do something different when zero is in the denominator.

The entire data set is returned from the proc there is no formula been built in the report which is quite confusing for me.

There is probably a formula that does a division.

If it is a Crystal error, it should take you to the formula that has the error.

The usual fix is to change the formula from

   A / B

to

If B = 0 then
  0
Else
   A/B

DOes the report filter the data?
You may need to change the SP to test for the 0 divide
