1203143 - Error: "Failed to Export Report" when exporting to CSV from Crystal Reports XI Release 2


In Crystal Reports XI Release 2, you create a new report containing grouping. You attempt to export the report to CSV format using Standard mode but the export fails and the following error message appears:
"Failed to Export Report". 


The data from the Group Footer is not exported to CSV.


To work around this behavior, complete these steps:
  1. Export the Report to Excel - Data Only format.
  2. Now save this exported Excel file as a CSV (MS-DOS) file type. You need to have Microsoft Office installed on your computer.
  3. Click Legacy Mode for CSV and then select the Isolate Group Sections checkbox.
