Comparing Reports?

P: n/a
The scenario:

- A system with a couple hundred reports is up and running in production.

- Changes are made to the system.

- Somebody decrees a full regression test.
All reports are generated by Crystal Reports.

Anybody know of a smart tool that would compare two Crystal Reports and
report on the diffs?

Best I can come up with is telling Crystal to generate text files and then
running WinDiff against them. That would save people from having to review
reports what showed no diffs...but I'm wondering if there are utilities out
there that maybe go a little further.

There are a wide variety of testing tools that will work with web forms,
including products from Microsoft, Mercury, and others.

If you have the enterprise edition of VS, you already own this tool.
