Upgrading from Crystal 8.5 with data dictionaries.


Hi All,

We currently have a legacy system that was set up for reporting using Crystal 8.5 and data dictionaries. I'm pretty sure that data dictionaries are no longer supported in Crystal.

We would like to upgrade to a newer version of Crystal as our IS group is no longer supporting this setup.

Just looking for some assistance as to the path of least resistance for accomplishing this upgrade. Is there any way to export the data dictionaries from 8.5 and translate them somehow into the newer version or are we just going to have to rebuild all of the current reports from scratch.

Most of our databases run on Oracle 10 or 11g

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
