We have just started to evaluate Telerik Reporting. One of the criteria is to be able to convert the old report files which were created in Crystal Reports 11.5.

I am able to convert the old .rpt files from Crystal to a Telerik Report after I followed this KB article for binding redirection: http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/reporting/general/converting-reports-from-various-versions-of-crystalreports.aspx however, not all the sections are getting converted. Major issue is with the group sections. For all the group sections I get the following error in the Report Conversion Summary:

Error: Error converting group: Component of type Group could not be created.  Make sure the type implements IComponent and provides an appropriate public constructor.  Appropriate constructors either take no parameters or take a single IContainer parameter.. [Report5]

Has anyone run into this situation? Does Telerik have a work around or solution to overcome this problem?

Hi Anuj,

Please have a look at the Converting reports from other reporting solutions help article. Please note that these converters are just a help utility and they do not guarantee one-to-one conversion and are provided as is. Please also note that as a best practice we can advise you to create your reports from scratch since that way you will be able to get to know the product better, which will help you in the future creation and modification of your reports.
