Crystal Reports in VB.Net 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am using crystal reports within VB.net 2005 and am connected with SQL 2005.  I have found that when you try to report off of a SQL table that has a field that is varchar(5000) crystal can only display up to 800 characters.  I queried the table and SQL is more than capable of displaying all the data but crystal seems to be limited.  I have can grow set on with unlimited lines!  I tried using a formula MID(Fieldname,801,10) and that gives me nothing.  Can crystal only pull in a field that is 800 characters or less?  Is there a work around solution for this problem?
