Using Crystal Reports with Clarity - does anyone here do this?
we are in the process of upgrading our Clarity system to version 8.1.1 - which has gone away from Actuate to support Crystal Reports instead.
Is anyone here using Crystal Reports with Actuate already?
I was looking into upgrading from CR XI to CR 2008 - but wondered if the extra functionality is worth the upgrade cost.
They say that users can interact with the data by sorting/filtering and re-formatting without re-querying the database - and there is a parameter panel that allows new parameters to be added to the 'saved' data..
i was wondering if those features are available when it is used with Clarity..
thanks in advance,

If Clarity has embedded Crystal Reports within it's own application then it would depend on the version they embedded.
If you are using Crystal Reports stand alone designer to connect to Clarity, I would assume it is via an ODBC or OLEDB connection, then any version of CR should be able to connect.
