Speed generating report


We are considering C11 coming from C8. The file we access contains 65000 records. To generate a report using C8 takes seconds. Using C11 it takes 20 to 30 minutes. We have 100+ of reports running against the file. Called the help desk and all they could say was, 1. purchase the schedular $2500 and generate reports at night,(data base we access is updated at night finishing around 7:am, 2.hire a contractor to convert from C8 to C11, roughly $100,000. Excuse for the problem is broken links. When the reports do generate they amounts are correct. C8 would increment the records by the 1000+. C11 increments by 30-40. Buffer issue? Does anyone have a legitimate solution other then the two given? Converter program? Change of Crystal options? Oh, going to C11 for the use of Crystal viewer which does not work on C8.
