Migration from Crystal 2008 to 2011


I have recently migrated from Crystal 2008 to Crystal 2011. I have some cocerns.

1st I connect to Excel Worksheets, create a report, save the report and exit Crystal. I had previously exited Excel. When I try to open my Excel File I get a message stating that the Excel File is in a read only mode. On tracing further I determine that Excel thinks Crystal has the Excel File Open. It does not. If I Shut Down the computer completly the next time I try to open the Excel File it opens without a problem. How can I break the connection with out shutting down completly.

2nd When I try to open a Crystal Report that I created in Crystal 2008 with Crystal 2011 I get a message that the report was created in a newer version of Crystal and that some features may not be supported. Why do I get the message?

3rd How do you add a Sum to all levels in Crystal 2011?
