1313017 - Memo field is duplicated on the next page in Crystal Reports


  • The last row containing a memo field appears correctly at the bottom of the first page
  • The same row is repeated again on the next page

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a report based on a database which contains a memo field
  2. Include the memo field in the detail section
  3. Run the report
  • Crystal Reports XI Release 2 Service Pack 4 (CR XI R2 SP4)



(Each mentioned point below corrects the problem):

  • Place the memo field inside a text object
  • Modify the width/height of the field
  • Uncheck the 'Can Grow' option of the field

Note:  This specific report also contains a "Page M of N" field in the page header.  Making this field wider or moving it higher and unchecking the 'Can Grow' option also prevents the memo field from being duplicated.
