Export format is not known/supported


I have a java application that uses Crystal Report JRC (CR4E) to generate and export reports to different format.

My code successfully generated reports in formats like PDF, RTF, CSV, and RPT. But I still need to format to MS Excel and paginated text format. Although there are MSExcel and Text formats available from ReportExportFormat, I cannot use it successfully. Here is how I export:

int format = ReportExportFormat._MSExcel;
InputStream inputStream = reportClientDoc.getPrintOutputController().export(ReportExportFormat.from_int(format));

I got this error:

2009-04-30 12:22:39,328 ERROR com.businessobjects.reports.sdk.JRCCommunicationAdapter - Export format is not known/supported 2009-04-30 12:22:39,343 ERROR com.businessobjects.reports.sdk.JRCCommunicationAdapter - JRCAgent1 detected an exception: Export format is not supported or not recognized

How I can export to MS Excel without creating a report on web first? Is ReportExportFormat._MSExcel really not supported? I am using the com.businessobjects.sdks.jrc.11.8.0_11.8.8.v1541 from CR4E.

Upgrade to CR4E 2.0 Service Pack 1 - links in the first post in this forum.

MS Excel export is supported with CR4E 2.0 SP1. Not previous.
