Hello,

There is a tool for enterprise called the migration wizard which will move reports made in one version to another version. This is primarily used for Enterprise to Enterprise moves. If it is a single report you can just open it in 11.5.

Hello Sean,

I tried to open a crystal report 8 version in 11.5 it did not get open.

However, i believe it is not possible to open 11.5 in 8 version?

r version 8 is not compatible with version 9 and above.

Crystal Decisions as it was then significantly altered th eproduct between version 8.5 and 9 to include a Unicodie layer in the application, this unfortunately meant that version 9 and above is not backward compatible with prior versions.

You will need to recreate the reports from scratch in V11.5 unfortunately, however if you have the original report open in V8 you can cut and paste objects and code into the new report.

Hi Mohammad Usama

As you said in your earlier post, It is not possible to open 11.5 reports with 8. From 10 onwards we have the backward compatibility.

Thanks,
