    We are converting from C1Reports to FlexReports. We have several reports that we have saved off as C1PrintDocuments in C1Zip files. Is there a way to open c1Printdocuments with C1flexReports?

    Hi,

    C1FlexReport does not contain C1PrintDocument and related assemblies. Thus, This is not possible to open C1PrintDocument with C1FlexReport.
    However, you can convert your C1Report to C1FlexReport.
    Please check the below link for the same.

    We have reports that are snap shots and already generated with data (hence the c1 print document). That doesn't seem to work with conversion link you sent.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Sorry to say but this is not possible to use C1PrintDocument with C1FlexReport.
    However, you can use a workaround like:
    1. First create images from C1PrintDocument using Screenshots or any other tool
    2. Now, you can use these images in C1FlexReport using Image Field.

    Hope, this will help you.

    Thanks,
