converting reports with personal dataprovider


We have a migration from 6.5 towards XI 3 and are trying to convert our personal documents (all .rep) in webi reports.

A lot of our personal reports are containing freehand sql and external dataproviders (mostly excel files). To convert the reports containing freehand sql we have found a workaround, by creating some extrernal tables in a seperate universe that we use to run the freehand sql and store the results in a table.

The reports containing external dataproviders have however some other problems: Can they be migrated in the report conversion tool? We always get an internal conversion error when converting this documents...

Any ideas how this error can be bypassed (or solved)? Is there anyone who has experience in converting documents with personal dataproviders?

Kind regards,
