I have been using 8.5 for years without any problem. Recently I have been unable to create any new reports. I am not allowed to insert any field or text objects. I am also unable to modify any of the existing thousands of reports. I have reinstalled a number of times. It will work for a few objects and then the problem reoccurs.

Software/Hardware used:
Crytal 8.5, XP, Oracle 10

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

i am having the same problem. I am new to Crystal reports and my first task at work was to modify an existing report.

Does anyone know of a way that I can narrow down the problem? I am a total n00b.

    Have you tried modifying the reports from a different machine ? It could be an operating system issue.

    You are probably using two monitors! Crystal reports will only allow you to place fields when it is being used on the primary monitor. Odd, I know.
