Problem creating rpt on server and sending them to client via WCF

Hi all,

Intro:

I have a server which creates a crystal report (with subreport) and sets data into it.

I used 'ExportToStream(ExportFormatType.CrystalReport)' method and got a byte[] which I transfer to client via wcf.

on the client side I save the received byte[] on 1.rpt format, and load it to a ReportDocument object using 'Load()' method.

then I set it as dataSource of crystalViewer.

My bug:

I get the result with missing data.

sometimes crystal generates its own 'dummy' data (Red 1000, green 1500 etc...) and sometimes nothing is shown.

how come it happened? the byte[] size on server side (which created) and on client side (after received) is the same size.

Thank you for your help.

cheers,

Meital
