CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."

CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."

CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."

(OP)
In this environment, we call and pass parameters to Crystal .rpt files from VB.  For some reports (not all), I'm suddenly getting the CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."  Other programmers in same application, calling the same report do not get this error.  I have not changed my project references or moved / deleted any dll's.  Not sure why I'm now receiving this error.  These were working fine until recently.  Ideas?

RE: CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."

Are you passing any strings to the report that might have quotes embedded in them?

(OP)
No.  The only parameter I'm passing is an ID field, declared as integer in vb.  The data type of the parameter in Crystal is a number.

RE: CRViewer error, "The matching ' for this string is missing."

If other reports work, then the report is probably not the problem, something is probably being passed in that is causing the error.

If you don't pass the parameter, do you still get the error?

Fixed it.  Problem with the dll's.  Corrupt?  Not sure, but a re-install solved my problems.  Thanks!
