2337144 - Report renders blank page in CR Designer or RAS .NET or Java SDK when exporting to PDF when page lenght is set to maximum ( 999999 )


A customer has a report that will not render in the RAS SDK viewer.

The Report page length is set to 999999 ( maximum paper length when Custom Paper Size is selected ) It removes all of the page breaks when exporting.

  • When exporting to PDF format to disk the export succeeds, may depend on resources and version of CR Designer.
  • When exporting to Application in CR Designer a temp file is opened in Adobe reader and no results are shown.
  • When exporting from a Java or .NET application the file size is about 25% less than what it should be and no data in the file.


  • BOE Java SDK
  • Crystal Reports for Visual Studio

Reproducing the Issue

Deploy the attached TestViewer.jsp and CrystalReportsViewer.jsp files and call the attached report.rpt. The path specified in the TestViewer.jsp is c:\\temp so you will need to edit it according to the location you place the report on the file system. NOTE: Please assign this case to a resource who is familiar with RAS SDK Embedded (e.g. Don Williams).
