how can I create a circle in Crystal Reports XI?  I want to show the percentage inside a circle - to draw attention to this number.  Is there anyway to do this?  I cannot find anything but a stupid box.

I am not aware of any other shapes being available.

One idea would be to have another object on top/below it that is an O or a 0 set to an appropriate font size.

I have a sample attached

The box should work.  If you right-click on the box and select "Box Format", there should be a "Rounding" tab with a slider.  Change the rounding to 100% and a square box becomes a circle (if it's not square, you get an oval).
