Does anyone know of a good utility or tool to convert Crystal Report files (.rpt) to MS SQL reporting services (.rdl)?   I've seen several consulting companies that will do the work for you, and one even has their own tool called "RDL Generator 2.0", but it doesn't look like they will sell just the tool.

Any info would be appreciated!!

Since MS SQL Reporting tool is fairly new I doubt there is a report convertor commercially available.

I just took a quick look at the companie that offered tools to convert Access reports to Crystal.  None are listing Crystal to MS SQL tool.

I'm not aware of a commercially available tool to do this.  Also, since such a tool would need to use the Crystal runtime components, it would violate the developer's license, which stipulates strongly against such use of these components...

I agree with mlmcc.

I haven't conducted and exhaustive search, but I have looked around and haven't found any tools.  I was hopeful that there would be something in Visual Studio 2005 but after checking the beta version no such luck (unlike Micro$oft - I wonder if there are contractual obligations w/ Biz Objects?)

It looks like Hitachi Consulting has the tool you are talking about.  It doesn't really say whether or not they are selling it or not.

It appears that there is a purchasable product created by KTL Solutions called Crystal Converter 2.0. It appears that this tools is available for just under a grand.
