Default Problem in exporting crystal report to excel.

Am getting this error
"System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

This error comes when i am trying to export crystal report in excel format.
Exporting to pdf works fine though.

On local development machine, exporting to pdf and excel works.
On server, only exporting to pdf works..exporting to excel throws this error.

can anyone pls help. Below is my code sample for export button click.
Private Sub Btn_Export_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Btn_Export.Click
            Dim oStream As New MemoryStream
            Me.Crystalreportviewer1.ReportSource = Server.MapPath("Capex_Summary.rpt")
            Dim ParamFields As ParameterFields = Me.Crystalreportviewer1.ParameterFieldInfo
            Dim Per As New ParameterField
            Per.ParameterFieldName = "Period"
            Dim ParamCurrentValues As New ParameterValues
            Dim Period_Value As New ParameterRangeValue
            Period_Value.StartValue = Me.txtSTdate.Text
            Period_Value.EndValue = Me.txtCLdate.Text

            'Set Division Paramter                
            Dim GetDivisionValues As String
            GetDivisionValues = Trim(Request.Form(ddl_division.UniqueID))
            Per = New ParameterField
            ParamCurrentValues = New ParameterValues
            Per.ParameterFieldName = "Division"
            Dim Division_Value As New ParameterDiscreteValue
            If GetDivisionValues = "Select All" Then
                Division_Value.Value = "*"
                Division_Value.Value = GetDivisionValues
            End If

            'Set Department Parameter
            Dim GetDeptValues As String
            GetDeptValues = Trim(Request.Form(ddl_department.UniqueID))
            Per = New ParameterField
            ParamCurrentValues = New ParameterValues
            Per.ParameterFieldName = "Department"
            Dim Department_Value As New ParameterDiscreteValue
            If GetDeptValues = "Select All" Then
                Department_Value.Value = "*"
                Department_Value.Value = GetDeptValues
            End If

            Dim GetCategory As String
            GetCategory = Trim(Request.Form(ddl_Category.UniqueID))
            Per = New ParameterField
            ParamCurrentValues = New ParameterValues
            Per.ParameterFieldName = "Category"
            Dim Category_Value As New ParameterDiscreteValue
            If GetCategory = "Select All" Then
                Category_Value.Value = "*"
                Category_Value.Value = GetCategory
            End If
            'crReportDocument.SetDatabaseLogon(gbVariables.strUsrName, gbVariables.strUsrPwd, gbVariables.strServerName, gbVariables.strDBName)
            Dim ExportFormatType As String
            ExportFormatType = Trim(Request.Form(ddl_export.UniqueID))
            Select Case ExportFormatType
                Case "Portable Document (PDF)"
                    crReportDocument.SetDatabaseLogon(gbVariables.strUsrName, gbVariables.strUsrPwd, gbVariables.strServerName, gbVariables.strDBName)
                    'oStream = crReportDocument.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.Shared.ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat)
                    oStream = DirectCast(crReportDocument.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.[Shared].ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat), MemoryStream)
                    Response.Buffer = True
                    Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
                Case "MS Excel (XLS)"
                    crReportDocument.SetDatabaseLogon(gbVariables.strUsrName, gbVariables.strUsrPwd, gbVariables.strServerName, gbVariables.strDBName)
                    'oStream = crReportDocument.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.Shared.ExportFormatType.Excel)
                    oStream = DirectCast(crReportDocument.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.[Shared].ExportFormatType.Excel), MemoryStream)
                    Response.Buffer = True
                    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
            End Select            
        Catch ex As Exception
            lblError.Text = ex.Message.ToString
        End Try
