<Default Format> when Export to Excel 2002

<Default Format> when Export to Excel 2002

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

RE: <Default Format> when Export to Excel 2002

I am having the same issue, but am exporting to Excel 2000, worked fine in excel 9. If you have any answers, please let me know.



RE: <Default Format> when Export to Excel 2002

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.
