Why I hate Crystal Reports - Part V
Crustal, oh how I hate thee, let me count the ways.
In a previous post, I lamented how there were cosmetic differences between what I created on my desktop, and what I see when I publish it to the crustal server. Now, in a new report I'm working on, I'm trying to supress some detail rows - the formula works fine on the desktop, but on the server - well, it doesn't. It just came to me that maybe the way I'm formatting the totext( ) portion of the formula, but why does it work fine on the desktop, and not on the server?
To the makers of Crustal Reports: there is the neat new thing called the internet - make your POS product work on it.
PS - I was right - the problem was in the fact that the default format for the totext( ) command differs from the desktop to the server, and I can't find where to change those settings on the server, and I have looked extensively. It is quite evident that crustal puts more effort into marketing than development.
