Using Import Wizard on BOE Xi 3.1 as destination and CE 10 as source - no reports

Trying to migrate from:

Crystal Enterprise ver 10 on Win 2k3 server --> BOE Xi 3.1 on Win 2k8 R2 server

After the Import Wizard has finished (see screenshot below of what I chose to import), all the new file folder paths appears to be the same in the new Xi 3.1 server; however, there were NO Crystal Report files in them. How do I remedy this?

Do I have to re-import, but what selections should I be choosing the 2nd time (I haven't done anything after initial import yet)?

Or is this even possible to do? Is there an intermediate step I need to do for the Reports to show?

    Hi Jeff,

    As the reports have not come up on the target, for the second time, select "Import Folders and Objects". You may even select "Import repository objects" if the reports use Business Views and proceed with the screens. The "Import Scenario" screen is self explanatory whether you want to migrate the content based on name of the object or CUID. You may refer the import wizard guide for more information. Below is the link.

    Do you have rights to use Import Wizard? and check you have rights on the folders?

    Based on the screen shots, you are missing folders option in the first screen shot.

    The Crystal Import Wizard can import Crystal report objects only if they are based on native drivers, ODBC data sources, OLAP data sources, or Business Views. You have the choice to import the report instances for each report object, and the scheduling patterns that you have set up in the source environment are imported automatically.
