Can I use the Crystal 2016 XML report definition to create a Crystal XI report?

I have a customer who created a Crystal 2016 report to save in our software and we are running Crystal XI server so it will not run. I can extract the XML report format but I can't figure out how to use the XML report definition to create a Crystal XI report.

If I can't use the report definition, is there a way to save as a prior version?

I know there were significant feature changes between the versions, but this is a simple report with a LOT of fields.

Hi Ginger,

No, there is no option to save a report in a specific version.

You can however open the report in CR XI Report Designer and then save it, you should get a warning about losing functionality but you could run it and verify it works.

The problem could be in the DB Driver, lots of upgrades since XI. Try setting location to the DB in CRD, it could be the CLeint is not capable in XI.

When you it wil not run what is the actual error you are getting?
