    Converting reports

    Hi all

    I have a few reports created in Crystal V11 which V12 is refusing to open due to an "Invalid report version" error.

    Does anyone know how to open V11 reports in V12?

    TIA.

    Apologies, got my Version numbers wrong.

    The reports were created in V11 and I need to open them in V8.5.

    Anyone?

    From my older notes :
    Crystal Reports 9.0 (and newer), changed the format of the reports to be completely Unicode compatible. They decided that it was too much work to try and convert all the Unicode parts backwards, meaning that all previous report formats were not able to be saved. Probably your only avenue will be to export the report to "Report Definition" file and to manually recreate it in 8.5.

    So that's a definite non-starter.
    Thanks anyway.
