    You can use Rpt Inspector by Re-crystallize to change thousands of reports at once.

    Don't use OLE connections and this problem will go away, use ODBC and then change it in one place for all reports down the road. You can change this in Rpt Inspector. For writing the reports back to the enterprise you will need the enterprise version.

    I don't work for Re-crystallize or software forces who owns the software but it does work. It's not expensive either 1495 and you only need 1 copy. It's the enterprise version (be able to write back to the enterprise) that it makes it more expensive than CR client.

    They are still coming out with a 2008 version, but keep in mind that all CR's that are in XI 3.1 that are migrated from XIR2 stay as XIR2 once in XI 3.1 until saved in CR 2008 client.

    So their current solution for XIR2 should work fine. The only problem is if you default parameters, then when saving it drops all the defaults.

    There is no generic functionality that will enbale you to do this. But you can write a script based on the BOE and Crystal SDK that does that.
