Report Crashes

Running Crystal CR Developer Version RTM
Reporting against a Microsoft SQL database

Have a report that was developed probably back in the Crystal version 6 days. Updated it to Crystal 7 and it ran fine for years. Recently I upgraded the report to Crystal CR Developer Version RTM and started having difficulties with it.

The report collects the records, somewhere around 45,000 then it starts “Compressing Summaries”. Then it crashes.

Any tips on what may be causing this and how to resolve?

Been using this version of Crystal for 5 years and it has not had any patches or updates.

(If you are wondering, I was using Crystal 7 on one PC and Crystal 14 on another. Finally had to retire the PC with Crystal 7 and was forced to update this report.)


RE: Report Crashes

There could be so many reasons for the application to crash (including a corrupt install). Very difficult to determine the root cause. It appears that you are using the 2011 version of Crystal. From what I recall, that was a pretty stable version of Crystal Reports.
