Reproducing the Issue
- In Crystal Reports, create a report off any data source.
- Insert an OLE Object that contains several pages on the report. ( Microsoft Office document, PDF document,... )
- When viewing the report, it only display the first page of the document inserted.
- An OLE Object is a technology that allows linking and embedding part of a document in another application.
- It is limited to display the first page of a document, if the embedded document contains multiple pages.
- This is the default behavior of a Microsoft OLE Object. It is not a limitation of Crystal Reports, but of the OLE Object technology. If you were to insert the same OLE Object in another application, it will also display the first page only.
- To workaround the OLE Object technology limitation:
- Save each page of the document in a separate file.
- Insert each page as an OLE Object on the report.
