crystal reports 10


We have Crystal Reports 10 currently in our organization and we want to know if it is compatible with SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008?

Does anybody have any idea on this? Any help as in white paper, links etc is appreciated.

    I would suggest searching the SAP Notes site for keywords such as 'supported platforms and crystal reports'. It will return a document of the supported platforms.

    In regards to your specific question, Crystal Reports and SQL 2005/2008 have not been tested together. It does not mean it will not work, however there will not be an escalation path if they do not work. MSSQL 2005 and 2008 came out later than when CR10 was released.
