Crystal Reports : PDF exported report differs from direct printed report

Crystal Reports : PDF exported report differs from direct printed report

Post by riadh.madh » Wed, 25 Aug 2004 22:31:12


Hello,

I made a short VB program that allow to print a report directly to a
printer and to export a report into PDF. For the same report, I
noticed that the PDF version differs from the "direct" print version :
the PDF version has a smaller font and bigger margins than the printed
version. I tried to make the same operation from the Crystal Reports
Designer, but it gave me the same result. I also tried to create the
PDF, not with the Crystal Reports export function but by printing the
report to a virtual PDF printer. Here again, i had the same result.
Does anyone know about this problem and how can a solve it please?

Thanks.

Riadh.

I have the same problem. My solution was to use only the PDF file and print
the PDF file instead of printing directly. Not so nice, but what can you
do.....

Ok thanks,

I sent also a request to Crystal Reports support. According to them,
this bug is corrected in Crystal Reports 10 :

I have an evaluation version of CR 10 but I haven't tested it yet.
