How can I retrieve a Crystal Report from BOE repository as rpt file?

BOE (XI Release 2.0) is used to store and manage Webi reports and published reports (Crystal Report). The user can view these reports through the InfoView, he also can edit Webi reports. There is a need to be able to edit CR reports in Crystal Report Designer (XI Release 2.0).

How can I retrieve a Crystal Report from BOE repository as rpt file using .NET BOE SDK? Is it possible?

    It's possible to retrieve report files using the .NET SDK, but the easier option would be to use the 'Repository Explorer' in CR Designer to connect to your Enterprise server to open and edit a report.

    Hi Sergey,

    Here are links to our samples for BOE and .NET. If you are looking to alter Crystal Reports stored in Enterprise then you are much better off doing what Fritz mentioned as that is the equivalent to using the Webi interface to update Webi reports.

    VB.NET
