crystal report taking too much of time to view report.

crystal report taking too much of time to view report.

Dear All,

Dear Team,
It is very urgent, your immediate attention is highly helpful and thankful

Environment used: WINDOWS 2008 R2 SERVER, CRYSTAL REPORT XI sp4, SQL SERVER 2008R2

I am customizing OE INVOICE report, when i try to open crystal report using report viewer - it is taking toooooo much of time to open
say more than 7 minutes..

Please help, here below is my coding. Please advise....


RE: crystal report taking too much of time to view report.

There are a great number of possibilities that could cause a report to be slow to open. 1. A large dataset 2. Not using a command or stored procedure (if possible) for the data source 3. Not enough memory. 4. Other processes running at the same time. Then there could be other things I have not thought of.

5. You should upgrade Crystal to the last service pack that was made available for XI. See here:

6. The report was saved with a large amount of data, making the file large. For this, turn off "Save data with report" on the File menu.
