2316982 - How to get Crystal Reports to display custom Currency symbols on all platforms


Crystal Reports unable to display euro symbol.

Here is what is happening ... 

  • Measure Text form produces an HTML
  • RTF Converter is Converting the HTML into RTF and saving to file.
  • In this file the euro symbol is represented by \lang3081\'80
  • If you open this file in MS Word or Wordpad - the euro symbol is displayed appropriately.
  • However, Crystal can not interpret it as a euro symbol. It displays it as some unknown character.
  • I have also tried to use € in the rtf file instead of \lang3081\'80
  • This also works in Wordpad, however in Crystal the Symbol does not get displayed.
  • At the moment, it appears to be an issue with Crystal.
