1203773 - Formula field truncates upon export to PDF


While exporting a report file that contains a formula field to PDF format, you notice the field is truncated in the PDF file.


This could occur for two reasons. First, formula fields do not contain the option "Can Grow", so if the formula field is truncated in the Crystal Reports designer it will also be truncated in the exported PDF file. Second, if the formula field expands past the page margins, then it will be truncated.


Expand the formula field horizontally rather then vertically so that the field will wrap correctly to the second line. If this is not an option then it would be mandatory to ensure that the formula field is completely visible (not truncated) via the Crystal Report Designer. Choosing a printer driver that allows for larger page dimensions would allow for additional design room and support the export of larger objects.
