Starting BeX Query Designer from Crystal opens older version Designer


When starting the BeX Query Designer from Crystal Reports 2008, the older 3.5 version of the designer is started and hence wanting to edit a query that was designed in 2004s raises the error: "This component was edited with a more recent version of the editor. You also have to use the more recent version to edit further. Further processing is not possible. Update your front-end".

The latest version is installed, it seems that Crystal by default opens the 3.5 version that was installed with the 710 GUI and Business Explorer etc ... Is this by design and can one set something somewhere to use the 2004s version via Crystal Reports.

Any insight is welcome.

Hi Jacques,

that is a known issue in the toolbar of Crystal Reports.

You can start the Query Designer 3.5 / 7.0 from the BEx menu item
