    I think it is quite impossible.

    You can select the another Fonts and Style of fonts.

    But i dont think so Crystal Report Supports the Hindi Language.

    Write the following  custom function it returns the given number in arabic numbers...


    Function (stringvar strval)
    Local StringVar ival;
    Local NumberVar i;
    local Numbervar x;
    for  i := 1  to Length(strval) Do
        if  strval[i]="0" then
        x:= 1632
        else if strval[i]="1" then
        x:= 1633
        else if strval[i]="2" then
        x:= 1634
        else if strval[i]="3" then
        x:= 1635
        else if strval[i]="4" then
        x:= 1636
        else if strval[i]="5" then
        x:= 1637
        else if strval[i]="6" then
        x:= 1638
        else if strval[i]="7" then
        x:= 1639
        else if strval[i]="8" then

    There is no need for any functions or any of this stuff as I already tried all of this stuff with no use,

    here is what you do:

    1- if you just wanna print the report not export it then you can switch the regional settings to national.

    2- if you want the PDF to read the Arabic fonts when exporting you can install fonts like AYM and AXT fonts serials that will support the exporting of arabic fonts to PDF(assuming you have a control over the web server)
