Hi All,

We are currently in the process of converting Clarity reports from Actuate to BO (Crystal Reports). We have been able to achieve almost all of the features of Actuate reports except, the 'Search' functionality.

This feature of Actuate allows users to select from the data fields available on the report and export them to Excel. The exported data is in a raw tabular format. This feature is very important for our customers as they use our reports and the exported data for further analysis.

Crystal reports does not seem to have such a feature. Unformatted export to excel does not provide expected results. It preserves the structure of the report while exporting the data.

Has anybody been able to achieve this functionality in Crystal Reports or find a work around for the same?

Thank you.
