How to move from CR8 to CR10

How to move from CR8 to CR10

How to move from CR8 to CR10

(OP)
I need guidance as to what must be changed in my projects to use CR10 instead of the present CR8. Nothing I do seems to work. I tried redirecting the path to a folder of CR10 reports but it will not use CR10 to view the reports or to export the reports.
Thanks.

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

I'm not clear what you're asking.  We moved from 8.5 to 10 a couple of years back.  Opening a report from Crystal 10 should work.  Making a trivial change and then saving it should save it as Crystal 10, a one-way process since it uses Unicode.

Does that help?

Is there anything else that needs to be changed like this statement:

Private WithEvents CR As  CrystalReport

Private fso As New FileSystemObject, fld As Folder
Private rptFld As String

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

We didn't need to change anything apart from a complex set of data linkings that had to be amended, in just one report out of more than 200.

I've never come across

I ban see the report I am trying to use when I call it up with CR10; however, when the program calls the report, the viewer is still the one with CR8.  What controls this?

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

This is a visual basic question I assume because you have a program calling a report, rather than simply using crystal as a stand alone tool.  You should be able to change the crystal report components and references to the v10 objects.

If you are upgrading, why stop at v10 which is already several years old?

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

(OP)
Well, I already own CR10.  I think that the problem is that on my form, I have an activex component for CR8.  I removed it and got the newer from from the toolbox but then I have error message when I try to produce the report.   

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

(OP)
Maybe my question is wrong.  All my existing report file names are like vendorrepoprt.rpt.  I noticed in another system that all the reports are in the explorer as ".dsr" files.  How can I change thye "rpt" to "dsr"?  Thanks

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

I have never heard of or used .dsr files.  What is the error message you are getting?

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

(OP)
The main problem I have is that when a report is executed, the viewer I see is from CR8, not CR10.  How do I change this?

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

*.dsr files come from an old VB Add-in report tool called "DataReport".

I don't know if those files can be converted to CRYSTAL REPORTS.

My guess is you will have to re-build them.

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

(OP)
no, I can't seem to express myself correctly--all my reports are "rpt" files.  I just want to see them in the CR10 viewer, not the CR8 viewer.

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

Jim,

Uncheck the cr8 viewer and select the cr10 viewer.  However I do not believe this will get you past the problem with the .dsr files.

RE: How to move from CR8 to CR10

Sounds like you have a reference in your VB app that is pointing to the wrong version of CR.  Select Project/References in VB.  

If you are viewing reports, you will also need to remove the CR8 Viewer object and replace it with the Cr 10 object.  I've got both versions of Cr on the same machine and found it relatively easy to migrate to a later version.

Must change both references and the CRViewer object in the toolbox.

Okay, I have certainly tried that.  As far as I can see, there is a component called Crystal Reports Viewer which I think is the one for CR8 but, at this point I don't know anything for sure.  I do not see anything that looks like a viewer for CR10.  I wish someone would show me something, like a screen shot or something that I can relate to.  Crystal, of course, is famous for no help to the individuals or small companies.  They only care about mega-companies.
