(OP)
For a Reportsmith conversion, in the rcv file, is there a wild card for the old owner name or do we have to have each old owner name in the rcv file per table?   

The following is an example of a table change entry in the rcv file:
[Tables]
"Table1",1,"RegularConn1","Accounting","SysAdm","Payroll","Budgeting","SysAdm","PayrollBudget"
"Table2",1,"RegularConn2","Engineering","LabMan","Vendors","Budgeting","LabMan","Suppliers"
Following are the meanings for each position:
1 Unique Tag Name of entry in file.
2 Flag 0 (False)- Conversion not intended; reference information only.
1 (True)- Convert the connection in the .RPT files.
3 Connection tag The connection tag for the table, defined earlier in this file.
This must be a regular connection, not a named connection.
4 Old Database
Name
The original database name for the table as shown in the
table selection box, not the connection dialog box.
5 Old Owner Name The original owner name for the table as shown in the table selection dialog box.
6 Old Table Name The original table name as shown in the table selection dialog box.
7 New Database Name This is the new database name for the table as shown in the table selection dialog box, not the connection dialog box.
8 New Owner This is the new owner name for the table as shown in the table selection dialog box.
9 New Table Name This is the new table name for the table.
Basically, I want to know if there is a wild card for position 5 which is the old owner name in the rcv file for Reportsmith conversion.
