Error Exporting - File Not Found - due to Summary Information Title
I downloaded the vbnet_win_SimplePreviewReport and modified it slightly in order to duplicate the export problem I'm having. I'm using Crystal Reports 2008 in VB.NET.
I opened the World Sales report and edited the Summary Info (Crystal Reports > Report > Summary Info) - by changing the Title from "World Sales Report" to "World Sales / Report".
when you Run the application and press the Export button you will get an exception. From what I can tell the Title of the report is used to populate the file name in the dialog that is presented. When the title contains a character that is not allowed by a filename you get an exception.
I have a client with a number of reports and many of them contain the "/" in their Summary Info - they display this as the Title on their report. I've created my own export button to test with and before calling CrystalReportViewer1.ExportReport() - I've changed the Title to be an empty string --- nothing works. I always get an exception. The only thing I can do is actually edit the report and change the summary info title - which I don't believe is something the client should be restricted to on what goes here.
Does anyone have any thoughts or know what I could do in order to leave the client data as is and still export without errors?
