SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 Error

I have several fields i wish to concatenate and display as a single string within a detail section.  

a. Is there a limit on the number of fields that can be concatenated?
b. Is there a limit on the length of the resulting string?

When I run the report in SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 I get the following cryptic error when I try to go to the next page.
message: Syntax error
description: Syntax error
number: -2146827286
name: SyntaxError

However; when the report is ran in Crystal Reports 2008 it works fine.

How are you concatenating?
Is this a Crystal Report you are running in BO?

How did you upload the report to BO?

>>a. Is there a limit on the number of fields that can be concatenated?
     AS far as I know there is no limit. The fact that it works in CR 2008 is a good indication of that.

>> b. Is there a limit on the length of the resulting string?
    I think there is a limit but it is quite lengthy like 4096 or even higher.

So the report shows page 1 correctly but when you try to move to the next page you get the error?

I don't know if this will help or not.
