Raghu,

There are a few tools out there that can convert CR's .rpt files to SSRS's .rdl files... But there is nothing that will take you back the other way.

The simple fact that SSRS allows SOOOO many options that don't have any type of equivalent in CR means there most likely will never be a SSRS to CR converter.

Your best option... Copy the SQL code from the rdl and paste it into a CR Command... At least that way you won't have to waste time linking tables. But other than that... You're going to be building the new reports from scratch.

Sorry,

Jason
