I want to know if there has been any issues on creating big files on IIS with crystal reports.
Te issue is get is this i create reports that are bigger than 800 megs, it works fine when i do this locally howeer as soon as i try to generate these reports on my IIS server this does not work .
I run the website on IIS 7 with win 2008 r2 x86
Is there any issues with generating large files on IIS 7 with crystal reports?

I believe that if you generate an 800MB of file, it will consume lots of your CP power and processing time. Even you run your own dedicated server, this is highly not recommended.
If you have any crystal report question, you can post it at

Creating a large file on web page directly is always not recommended. Big crystal reports created on local is ok, but not for your server. You may need to determine what difference betwwen local configuration and configuration on server. Anyway, as my experience,
to create a large file you may try to use multi-thread or asynchronous mode.
Btw, as the reply above mentioned, I also suggest you post your question to crystal report related forum.
