Resolution

Hot Fixes or Service Packs address this issue as indicated below. With the update(s), this issue is resolved. A new feature for external joins was added since the version 9 release of Crystal Reports. In this particular case the external joins do not function properly. A registry key has been added to control this functionality.

Known limitations: By default the regkey will be set to exhibit current behavior. To disable the use of external joins the key will need to be modified and set to a value of 1.

Unless indicated otherwise, Weekly Hot Fix updates from the FTP site have only been tested with English versions of our products.
