1701849 - While exporting a report to any format from the Export button on the Crystal Reports 2008 webform viewer, file dialog box does not have the name by default.

Symptom

  • A web application developed using Crystal Reports 2008 .NET SDK to view report.
  • If the report is exported using the Export button from the Crystal report viewer, the file dialog does not show any file name by dafault.

Environment

  • Visual Studio 2008
  • Crystal Reports 2008

Cause

  • The Crystal reports viewer is not able to retrieve the name of the report as it is neither specified nor provided at runtime.

Resolution

  • This behavior can be changed using below steps at design time.

- Open the report in the designer.
- Go to ‘Summary Info’ option in File menu.
- In the Summary tab Set the ‘Title’ to the name of the report.
- Save the report and use it in the application. The export file dialog has the report name by default.

  • Same thing can be done at runtime by adding below piece of code (VB.NET) to the application.
         Dim CrReportDocument As New ReportDocument
         Dim CrReportClientDocument As ISCDReportClientDocument
         Dim MyRptName As String = "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Report1.rpt"
         CrReportDocument.Load(MyRptName)
         CrReportClientDocument = CrReportDocument.ReportClientDocument
         CrReportClientDocument.SummaryInfo.Title = MyRptName
         CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = CrReportDocument
