Reproducing the Issue
- In Crystal Reports, create a new report off any data sources.
- Insert a picture in any section of the report.
- Insert a text on top of the picture.
- Export the report to MS Excel format.
- When opening the spreadsheet generated in MS Excel, the text appears one line below the picture.
It does not appear on the picture as it appears in Crystal Reports.
- This is a limitation in Excel where it cannot hold image and text both in the same cell. That's the reason we see the text moved to a different cell.
- Since it is a limitation of the MS Excel format, there is nothing that can be done. The only suggestion will be to export the report to a different format, like PDF format.
