Formatting changed in Crystal Report when run by one user from Custom Reports

User may find that, when running a Crystal Report out of Custom Reports in the Raiser's Edge, formatting selections made in Crystal Reports are altered. When the Crystal Report is run out of the Raiser's Edge by this particular user, the .RPT file's "date modified" changes. When another user runs the report after the affected user, the changes made to the Crystal Report's formatting are still shown. Once the report is rebuilt with the desired formatting, other users may run the report without any changes being made. Formatting changes are only seen after the affect user runs the report. 
This issue can occur due to a corrupted user profile. To resolve the issue, recreate the affected Raiser's Edge user.
