1314394 - Does Crystal Reports version 9 and newer support non-unicode print drivers?

Symptom

  • Printing to non-unicode (usually dot matrix) printers results in incorrect report printing

Resolution

  • SAP Business Objects does not do explicit testing of non-unicode printer drivers
  • There is no support or escalation path for non-unicode printer drivers for Report Designer Component, Crystal Reports Designer or Crystal Rports / Business Objects / Report Application Server SDK for VS .NET
  • This includes Crystal Reports versions 9.x.x and above
