Crystal Report and Reporting Service

P: n/a
I have some report which are designed in "Crystal Report". I want to run
these reports in "Reporting Service"
My aim is to convert from extension of Crystal Report (rpt) to extension of
reporting service (rdl).
Crystal report and Reporting Service are both production of microsoft. i
think that there is a way to solve this
question.

Thanks for your helps

CrystalReport.NET is not MS's product, it is the version of CrystalReport
fimily products custonized to VisualStudio.NET. It is quite different from
the report produced with SQL Server reporting services. You cannot use one
in the other evironment by simply changing report file's extension.

So far, Reporting Services can only import reports designed in Access (now,
Access IS MS's product), but in many cases, after importing, you may still
want to some modifications.

You are right.

I also found this web site.

They say that they had a program converting from rpt to rdl.
I think as you said we also need to modify after converting.

Thanks for your helps
