I get this error often with a report containing 3 subreports
I have got Crystal Reports 2008 sp 3. All headers and footers in subreports are suppressed. The main report contains header and footer with only a label, so they can't grow. Printing orientation is landscape, no printer option is checked. Report prints over several pages, depending on the selected data it gives the error or not. Saving to PDF as well as printing gives the same error. Can you point me out to solve this issue?
It doesn't matter which one I delete. When I delete one it works fine for that selection, then I try another selection and it doesn't work anymore. Same with other subs. Even when I shrink the labels in the header from 2 lines to 1, it may work for one selection...try anoter selection the error comes up...
Solved this problem this way:
get rid of all subreports.
Make a huge union-query, where all fields are included.
Make an extra ID -field, with that field you can determine which detail-section you need to show.
Redesign the report.
So my conclusion is : you can't make a report with several subreports, where each can containing 1 or more rows.
One of our clients was having this error message too and I tried everything to fix it...
Weird thing was that the report worked fine on my end just not his..
Turns out it had nothing to do with the report but more so the default printer...
I found this thread:
In his case, the default printer was set to an offline printer... I changed it to one that was online and then the report worked fine.
I already tried this without success.
Orginally I printed it out to pdf in preview, then I tried to print to my default printer (xps): no success, then I set the default printer to another printer but neither success... My other reports works fine (same computer, same default printer, same report options,...)
Strange is that I have now a third report that's very very simillar and I can't get it to chrash it. I'm not yet out what the difference is. Except other tables, other data and now there is some data in the report-header and -footer!
