Reproducing the Issue
- In Crystal Reports, create a report off any data source.
- Add a subreport to the report.
- Export the report to CSV format.
- When opening the CSV document, note the main report data is exported to CSV, but the subreport data is not exported.
- Subreport is not supported when exporting to CSV format, this is why the data of the subreport is not exported.
- For a list of Crystal Reports supported functionalities by exporting format, see the SAP Knowledge Base Article 1946358
- To workaround this limitation, the suggestion is to export to report to a different format, like MS Excel format, then rename the extension to CSV once the document is generated.
