I have Crystal Reports 8.0, Excel 2002 on Windows XP. When I export to Excel 8.0 files from Crystal and open the spreadsheet in Excel 2002, all 0(zero) values are displayed as <Default Format>.  If I have someone else open the file that I exported, regardless of their Excel version, they also get <Default Format>.  
NOW, if someone with Crystal Reports 8.0 export DLLs and Excel 2000 (or non-2002 versions) runs the same report and exports from their PC, the spreadsheet file will show zero values as 0.
Is this a Crystal Report problem or an Excel problem?  Any ideas on how to fix this?  I've checked my regional settings, Options tabs.
Thanks, Dawn

No such luck.  Luckily no users have complained about this yet, probably because most don't have Excel 2002.  I'm ignoring the issue for now, because I am looking at replacing Crystal Reports anyway.  The new pricing structure for user licenses may put it out of our price range, unless I can get the RAS server stuff to handle user requests.  Good luck.
