Crystal Reports 2011 IDE fails to save active report

I've been using CR 2011 to update some previous versions of CR.  When I go to save the report 9 out of 10 times it fails to save the active report file and turns the report into a .tmp file.  I then have to save the report back to a .rpt file and it is fine and the report still works.  But this is driving me nuts.  To have to keep on saving as after the IDE fails.
Anyone have any help/suggestions on this.

hi Jim,
are you using crystal reports for visual studio as the IDE? if so, please repost your question here.
if not (i.e. you are using crw32, the regular crystal reports designer tool), please ensure that you've got the latest sp installed from here. after that, if you still experience the problem please provide a link to one of your reports (e.g. in dropbox) with saved data so that it can be tested by someone else on their version of cr.

  • REP-52266: The in-process Reports Server rep_adminserver_ikit_asinst_1 failed to IDL:oracle/reports/RWException:1.0

    I have installed oracle forms and reports 11gR2 on Windows 7 Professional 64bit (and configured in development mode), the forms are working fine but when i run a report i get this message
    REP-52266: The in-process Reports Server rep_adminserver_ikit_asinst_1 failed to IDL:oracle/reports/RWException:1.0

    I was trying to add a new destination:
       <destination class="oracle.reports.server.DesMail" destype="mail"/>
    I couldn't make it work , so I commented my changes.
    In fact, I should have gone back to a backup file , as weblogic seemed to have changed the file itself!! (attributes of the xml tags were in different order, and more things ...) but just undoing what I have done did the trick.
    This file seems to be quite picky, I left this tag uncommented
    and the same REP-5226 error happened.

  • How do I report/analyze data from the KM activity reporting service

    I have turned on the km activity reporting service and I am getting .txt files generated with the information I am looking for but now I'm looking for the best way to collect this data from all the server clusters and aggregate the data for easier data analysis.  I have reviewed the 'how to analyze portal activity with the activity data collector' white paper.  This leads me to believe that the only way to collect and analyze this data is to write a script that collects and analyzes the data.  Is this true or is there a better way of gathering and reporting this data?  Is this data stored in a table somewhere?

    the portal only offers basic monitoring capabilities. But it offers the possibility to create quite extensive logs, like km activity reporting service. What the portal writes to a DB table are the PAR statistics. The quite more extensive KM and ADC data is written to a file.
    You can use SolMan to analyze the data. SolMan can gather, analze and write the data into the BI and gives you the basic report.
    In the same way, you can use SolMan to gather the data and create your own BI reports. As it can be really hard to collect X logs from Y servernodes, SolMan offers an easy way to collect the different logs.

  • SAP Crystal Reports 2011 - Product keycode

    Dear all,
    I have been requested to install SAP Crystal Reports 2011 to use it as a reporting tool for our SAP ERP 6.0.
    However, I got stuck when the installation program asks me for the "Product Keycode". Does anybody know if there is a temporary product keycode so we can evaluate this product before purchasing it?If so, where is it?
    Once SAP Crystal Reports 2011 is successfully installed, do we need to install anything else in order to set up the connection between SAP Crystal Reports 2011 and SAP ERP 6.0?
    Thanks in advance,

    Since someone on your site obtained CR 2011, they should also have a permanent keycode...
    Failing that, the only way to get a 30 day temp  eval keycode is from here;
    But you will still have to go back to who ever obtained your current CR 2011 and ask them for a permanent keycode.
    Re. Connection to SAP ERP 6.0. You're better off asking in the SAP Crystal Reports Database Connectivity|SAP Crystal Reports - Data Connectivity; forum rather than in this forum.

  • CrystalReport - Getting "The Report Application Server failed" while export

    Hi Experts,
    I am using Crystal Reports 2008 in my ASP.NET application to generate reports. Everythings works fine in the development environment. When I deploy it on my Windows Server 2003 system, I get an error "The Report Application Server failed" while exporting the report from the report control. But, the report assuch is working fine even in the production environement. I experience this issue only while exporting to excel or anyother format.
    Do I need to configure anything or any settings needs to be turned on in the .rpt files!!
    Appreciate any help to get this issue resolved.

    First a confirmation. When you say; "...exporting the report from the report control...", you mean the printer button on the viewer?
    What version of .NET?
    What Crystal Reports Service Pack are you on?
    How was the CR runtime installed on the server?\
    Can you print the report OK?
    Are you using sessions?

  • Strange Problem: cannot save public report as a developer

    HI all,
    I've testing an application in
    Several days ago I started to have a strange problem with my application. I don't know what has been changed but I can't save the Interactive reports as a developer. The app doesn't display the button "apply" to save the changes, and in the design view  of the report the "Save public report authorization" select list is greyed.
    Is there anyone that knows where is this permission managed?
    Thanks in advance

    To choose an authorization scheme under "Save Public Report Authorization", you first must check the "Save Public Report" checkbox under "Include in Actions Menu".
    Note that both the "Save Report" as well as the "Save Public Report" option work for authenitcated pages only.

  • REP-52266: The in-process Reports Server rep_myhostname failed to start

    Hi Everyone,
    My name is John and I've a small 10g report configuration issue which I would like to share and, hopefully, some of you might already have come across it and able to assist and guide me through it.
    First, I've installed Oracle Developer Suite 10g together with Report Builder and Oracle Forms Developer onto a 32bit Window 2000 Professional machine.
    I've tried to run the following URL which test for the servlet connectivity and it returns fine with all the valid reports servlet commands page.
    However, as I've tried to run the 'test.rdf' report using the following link:
    http://myhostname:8889/reports/rwservlet?destype=cache&desformat=PDF&report=test.rdf&userid=user/[email protected]
    And it returns the following error on the browser:
    REP-52266: The in-process Reports Server rep_myhostname failed to IDL:oracle/reports/RWException:1.0
    Then I set trace option on in the myhostname.conf file and restart the OC4J instance. And the trace file has the following results:

    I've not changed any of the report's related configuration files and the java version of the machine is 1.4.2_06. I do not know whether I need to apply a patch for this particular Developer Suite version or is there something which I've not done in terms of post-installation tasks. Thank you for your time and effort. Any feedback is much appreciated as I've been spending a number of days to solve this problem. Thank you and have a nice day.
    Kind Regards,

    Thanks for your reply and here is the output of the rwEng-0.trc file. I could not find anything "interesting" as you mentioned. Please let me know if you find anything missing in there. Also, currently there is only one network printer setup on the machine. Can you please elaborate on the printer bit as I'm unsure of what to troubleshoot. Also, I forgot to inform you that I have a previous version of Developer 2000 Form and Report installed prior to the 10g Developer Suite installation. Does it ring a bell to any other problem? Thank you again for your time and effort. Have a nice day.

  • REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server "test_srv" failed & REP-52266

    Hi folks,
    I'm trying to run reports on my machine localy, but when I run my report I always obtain this error:
    REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server "test_srv" failed
    I searched for this answer, but nothing worked for me.
    I tried steps described in thread: REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server <servername> failed
    So I did this:
    1. I run OC4J
    2. In file %ORACLE_HOME%\reports\conf\rwnetwork.conf I commented line with multicast and uncomented namingService part. Now rwnetwork.conf file looks like:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE discoveryService SYSTEM "file:C:\Oracle_10g_R2/reports/dtd/rwnetworkconf.dtd">
      <!--multicast channel="" port="14021" timeout="1000" retry="3"/-->
      <namingService name="Cos" host="localhost" port="14021"/>
    </discoveryService>3. In cmd, in C:\ORACLE_10g_R2\bin>namingservice 14021
    Naming Service started sucessfully
    4. In cmd:
    C:\ORACLE_10g_R2\bin>rwdiag -findAll
    Naming service used to locate servers
    Naming Server host = localhost
    Naming Server port = 14021
    (1) test_srv : Type = server : Host = NA
    5. I copied my report into: c:\Temp\report_test\szrcomp.rdf
    6. I run report from IE browser using url:
    http://localhost:8889/reports/rwservlet?report=c:\Temp\report_test\szrcomp.rdf&destype=cache&server=test_srv&desformat=htmlcss&userid=usr/[email protected]
    I received Error:
    REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server test_srv failed
    7. http://localhost:8889/reports/rwservlet/getserverinfo
    I received Error:
    REP-52266: The in-process Reports Server rep_dimopatsep05 failed to IDL:oracle/reports/RWException:1.0
    8. http://localhost:8889/reports/rwservlet/showjobs
    The same error as in 7.
    Can somebody help me with this problem?
    sorry for duplicate post in REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server "test_srv" failed  & REP-52266
    but this section it probably better for my problem.

    You should test first with a "standalone" reports server :
    1. Stop the OC4J
    2. Start the namingservice
    3 Start the reports server :
    rwserver server=test_srv
    4. test to execute a report :
    rwclient server=test_srv report=test destype=cache desformat=html
    If the reports server does not start , it will be necessary to activate the trace in
    order to get details about the problem :
    Edit the file $ORACLE_HOME/reports/conf/<reports server name>.conf
    Modify it in order to have a line :
    <trace traceOpts="trace_all"/>
    restart the reports server

    Is there any fixes to this issue?
    Crystal Reports--Version
    Thank you,

    I'd like you ot update to the latest Service Pack for CR 2013:
    Downloads for SAP Crystal Reports and others
    If that does not help, you may have to see what Process Monitor reports when you try to save the rpt.

  • Error adding report to Crystal Server 2011

    I have a report that runs against that I'm trying to add to Crystal Server 2011.  The server is running version of BI.  When I try to add the report through either the CMC or through the BI Launch Pad I get the same error.
    "An error has occurred: Adding Crystal Report "Quarterly Report 2011 with MF v3-2 Les Testing.rpt" failed. The server with kind rptappserver returned an error result. Failed to copy the report file to the report object. Refreshing the report object properties might have failed. Failed to read data from report file C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\Data\CrystalReportsRasServer\temp\{7FD511B8-F5DF-42AC-98D7-D2C43B1C458B}.rpt. Reason: Failed to read parameter object "
    If I try to add it by saving from Crystal Reports I get "Item 1 was not found in the collection"
    I'm logging on as administrator in both cases to the CR server.  I did find a thread where it was suggested that checking the "No Printer" box under page setup may fix it so I tried that but got the same results.  I also saw some references to firewalls, but the server is on a local subnet to my machine and all windows firewalls are turned off.
    The server is a fresh install of 2008 R2 and a demo download of CR Server 2011 and Client Tools. 
    Any help on a direction here would be greatly appreciated.  I've been banging my head against this for a while now.

    I cannot offer much help, but I see the same issue. 
    When I create a report in Developer it runs fine in Developer, but it will not load up to Crystal Server.  I can save the report with a new name and 50% of the time it will load to the Server.  Sometimes when I try to load the report, it seems the Server is thinking for a long time.  I hit "OK" button on server screen and then "Cancel"  the report SOMETIMES shows in the list of reports.  I just witnessed saving a non-loading report as another report and successfully loaded it into Server, then I ran the report in developer, closed it and tried to reload it to the server and it failed.
    It appears to be completely random.
    My gut tells me it has to do with the Salesforce driver (i.e. when I run it from Developer, the driver pollutes the report and chokes loading it on the server?)
    Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Vista/Adobe 9/sql image Error in Crystal Report:Failed to Export the Report

    When I try to export my Crystal Report (v2008) from a Vista machine (using Crystal RDC export methods) as a PDF, I get the following error:
    Error in Crystal Report:  Failed to export the report.
    This only happens when a particular subreport (that contains a sql image) prints (based on an input parameter).  We have other subreports (within this same report) that print a sql image just fine.  But, when this subreport prints, the above error appears.
    I can run the same report on an XP machine without error.
    Exportmodeller.dll and crtsv.dll are both installed and registered to the
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\3.0\bin folder
    I have tried opening the report, removing the image, and then adding it back in again to the subreport.
    Still receive the same error.
    Any suggestions?

    Can you please clarify?
    Our VB6 app that uses Crystal XI RDC runtime components.  Our Crystal reports are edited in CR2008 SP1 developer edition (not through the VB.NET embedded report designer).  We have deployed the CRXIRelease 2 runtime components (via the merge module) to our client machines in order to execute the RDC.
    We can print/preview/export to excel, but the pdf creation is failing with this error.
    We are only using the RDC (which we know is no longer supported) because of huge issues with the Crystal for .NET methods we are having with our customers (I have an active case for this issue).  Therefore, we have to rollback our .NET product and revert to the RDC code. 
    Vista is failing to create a PDF for a report developed in the CR2008 SP1 developer edition when using the RDC.
    When you say  "Also, those old dll's will not work in CR 2008. Last patches will give you the option to export to Excel in Legacy mode. We built it into our export dll.", what do you mean by "will not work in CR2008"?
    Thank you
