    Hi,

    Is it possible to convert a Crystal Report report to a Telerik Report using the Telerik Report Designer?

    If so, how?
    If not, can I put it on the feature request list? :)

    I have tried to convert several Crystal Report files by adding then onto a page, but this way I cant seem to convert it to a TRDX file..
    And since we need to check them all by hand using the Report Designer it would be a very neat feature in the Report Designer.

    Ok, I found that serializing the Report object to XML results in the TRDX file. (But I don't know if this is the best way :) )

    But it still leaves me that I need to export each report and then read it into the stand alone Report Designer for making it the way it should be.
    The person who needs to do this is not to happy to wait for me to convert the next one so he can redesign it..
    So it still will be usefull to do it from the standalone Report Designer..

    Sorry for bumping this post but is there any change that this functionality will be added to the standalone report designer?

    Hi Insad,

    You can directly configure the Standalone Designer to import Crystal Reports with the settings from Converting reports from other reporting solutions.

    Reports created by the Standalone Designer can be imported in Visual Studio and vice versa through the newly added Import Wizard.

    I hope this information is helpful.
