is crystal reports 8.5 backwards compatible with 8.0? we wrote some reports, and we found out that our client has 8.0.  can we run the reports?

RE: backwards compatibility - crystal reports

If you've created reports in 8.5 you can back save them to v7.  I think from memory, you could open a report written in 8.5 with the CR8 designer (the only versions you could do this with) - however, bear in mind that if the report uses any of the features that were new to 8.5 it will fall over and die - in addition, Crystal would not support you/the client in this situation.
