Migration question of Crystal Report

0 Kudos

We did a test promote of crystal reports from 4.1 to 4.2 platform.

I noted that the crystal report rpt files carry a 2016 extension

How does the report auto-convert from 2011 formats?

Hi Sandhya,

The report is updated to compatible version and 4.2 is compatible with CR 2016 - as such the reports are automatically updated. Generally, the update installer already updated your Crystal plugin if you used an update installer (or its already at 2016 if you used a full installer), further when you promote objects, the promotion manager moves the reports but post promotion plugins ensure report is at the target system compatible level. This is main reason why you can do forward promotion eg: CR 2011 => CR 2016 but going backwards may pose issues as you are already at a higher level.
