CR8.5 to CR11 Conversion Issues


I am trying to convert CR8.5 reports to CR11 and find that the underlying SQL changes, giving me inaccurate results. Mostly inner joins are replaced with external joins. Is there a way to control/prevent this issue? Thank you very much for your help.

    Manually verify each report and change the joins as required. After CR 8.5 the whole database engine was rewritten and all the "hacks to fix client driver problems were removed" Likely the cause of the join changes.
