I tried to get support from the Brazilian resseler, but it just sell
(everything), if you wish to report a bug they might ask you some money
to report it back to Seagate Software (as it was known on that time).

I got a bit upset by the Brazilian guys, they know less than me about
Crystal and tried to get my money in every chance they think they get. :-)

But there is a knowledge base on the crystal site, where I found some
info, the bug I was trying to report to the brazilian guys was reported
there and a workaround was available.

Try looking on the website, for sure there is some discussion group like
this, but I don't go there since I use a very old version, I think it's
not even supported any more. I use version 7, the current is version 11
(or XI).

But it's way off topic here.. sorry people...

see you !
