Changes in RPT file - Upgrade from CR 2008 to CR 2011

Hi,

We have more than 500 Crystal reports 2008 in XI 3.1 and we will be upgrading to BI 4.0 soon.

We will be migrating the contents using Upgrade Manager Tool from old CMS/BIAR to new 4.0 CMS. CR 2008 will be automatically upgraded to CR 2011 when we use UMT.

Does this automatic upgrade change the rpt file?

Is there any change we will see when we open the report in 4.0?

Thanks,

-Ganesh

    Hi

    Upgrade process will not make any changes to your .rpt file and also you will not see any changes / modifications in your report on BI4.0.

    Here we are migrating from 3.1 to BI4.0, this will just transfer your reports from one server to another server that it. If you open your .rpt files in CR2011 and make some changes (add new functionality) and publish on your BI4.0 then only you will see the change.

    Thanks,
