crystal_reports thread: Importing in Crystal ?


Message #1 by Karl King - TP Technologies <kking@t...> on Fri, 14 Dec 2001 12:12:18 -0000
We have a number of Word docs that we want re-create in Crystal Reports.

Can we somehow import them ?   or does anyone know of way of getting them

into Crystal without having to re-create them from scratch ?



cheers Karl.

Hi,



Save the Word Documents in .rft format instead of .doc then import using CR.

Hi,



I'm using CR v8.5, and can't see anywhere that you can import ?



Karl.

Hi Karl,



I found this ojn CR8.5 Help:



Importing text-based objects from a file



Using Crystal Reports, you can import a formatted, text-based object from an existing file onto your report.



1. To import text-based objects from a file

Double-click the text-based object you want to format, then right-click it to bring up the shortcut menu. 



2. On the shortcut menu, click Insert from file. 



3. In the Open dialog box that appears, select the file in which your text-based object is stored, then click Open. The object is
imported from the file onto your report, replacing the object you selected to format in Step 1.



in order words just copy paste from the .RTF document.
