1312304 - Change printer settings dynamically while printing a Crystal Report


 How to specify dynamic changes in Crystal Reports while printing a report?

Reproducing the Issue

  • Crystal Reports XI Release 2 (CR XIR2)


  • It is not possible to modify printing properties once a report has been sent to the printer
  • Crystal Reports do not have dynamic parameters that can be used to set printing properties


  • This may be achieved on the printer side, if the printer is built with such a capability
  • Alternatively, it may be achievable via SDK or a third party tool
  • Crystal Reports cannot do this
