    Hi,

    The title says it all, really.
    We are in the process of moving an old asp.net app to dotnet core/5. Right now Activereports is a blocker, since we have a lot of section reports.
    So... can we migrate with AR15?

    Kind regards
    Anders

    Hello,

    You can export and preview the section report in the .Net 5. However, currently you are not able to design the report. Please refer to the following link to design the report as workaround:

    @anjo, FYI what we did was create a separate dotnet 4.8 MVC API project, and basically moved all our reporting (which is all section reports) there. Our dotnet 3.1x project calls the APIs and gets binary streams in return. It's clumsy, but successful. One other reason was the sheer number of APIs that Grapecity is married to was starting to have issues with our 3.1 project - a new kind of dependency hell. Moving it out to another project protected us from that.
