Crystal Reports RPTR Format Not Available

Crystal Reports RPTR Format Not Available

Crystal Reports RPTR Format Not Available


I'm using Crystal Reports version

It's my understanding that I can create a report and save it in .rptr format instead of .rpt. Then I can distribute the .rptr version to users that can use a Crystal Report viewer to run the report.

I don't have an option to save or export the report in .rptr format. I've installed all export options from the installation CDs. Is there a trick to getting this option?


RE: Crystal Reports RPTR Format Not Available

Crystal reports XI does not support RPTR. RPTR is introduced with Crystal reports 2011. If you are a small business you can use the free R-Tag Community edition (http://r-tag.com/Pages/CommunityEdition.aspx) and export your reports from RPT to RPTR then share them with your customers.
