    Is there a utility available to convert Crystal Reports 9 to ActiveReports?

    You can find the "CR Reports Import Wizard" in the start menu under Data Dynamics-->ActiveReports 2.

    I'm not using .Net but VB6.  The utility does not work with anything higher than verison 8.5 (this was posted on another thread  http://www.datadynamics.com/forums/54212/ShowPost.aspx ).  I have serveral hundred CR 9 (note the 9) reports that I need to convert. 

    Since I can't use the utility, what other options do I have?

    I wasn't aware of this limitation and I entered CR 24269 to improve this utility. Unfortunately, I don't know of any other option to convert the reports.

    Hhhmm...I was willing to shell out big money to convert our two commercial applications to ActiveReports for VB6 with the eventuality of using .Net as well.  If you (or a 3rd party) don't have a converter for Crystal 9 (which is at least two years old now) I might have to rethink that decision because of the work involved to recreate all of the reports. 

    The conversion app was a big selling point.  Even if the conversion is only 50% of my CR data I'd be happy (mostly).
