  • @Diago, Agreed But one confusion in my mind that it is up voted question by three reputation. Up voted question is useful or not?.

  • @mahesh That question has one upvote and one downvote. +5 for the upvote and -2 for down, but it's the total votes of 0 that should indicate how useful it is. Commented Oct 10, 2011 at 17:28
  • @BilltheLizard, You may be right but I have seen first it is down voted by -2 up voted and later it seen 0 voted but I think reputation is increased later by +6 Or +7

    It was flagged as low quality, and subsequently edited to add more details (and code) related to the problem... However, it could have used a lot more editing for clarity; I realize English is probably not your first language, @mahesh, but you should still do your best to state the problem clearly in the title and present the evidence of your problem straight away: other than knowing Crystal is slow to load your report (sadly, it's slow to load everyone's reports, and has been for years), I can't really make head nor tail of what, specifically, you're asking for.

    Still, I'm not sure whether hard deleting it like that was justified. The OP is obviously hanging around, and working to improve it

  • @Shog9, I am sorry If some body heart by me but beleive me.It's not my intention, my intention is for improved the quality of crystal reports in later version like vs-2005, It has great feature for maintaining the memory garbage collection which improved connection and loading data between server

    I'm not gonna deny that Crystal looks good on paper, @mahesh, and this isn't the forum for discussing its issues anyway... I'm just saying, a question that consists of "this is slow" doesn't get you very far - you really want to describe how [something specific] is inexplicably slower than [general case], and ask what can be done to avoid the problem. Spending extra time on your phrasing to ensure this is clear to readers will go a long way toward getting your question answered (and not deleted).

  • @Pekka: it really could have used someone else editing it along the way. IMHO, the core question was too vague - even with edits - to answer, but the grammar didn't help. Though I do suspect it wouldn't have been flagged if the original form had been closer to the final form.
