Importing/Running Crystal Reports in Business Objects Universe

Posted on 2004-10-29

We have a suite of over 200 reports that are developed in Crystal Reports. We ant to migrate to Business Objects but do not want to lose our investment in CR. Can we import them into the Business Objects universe (version 5 and above) , or run them as CR objects in the Business Objects universe. I have searched the Business Objects knowledge base and it says nothing about it.

    I don't know.  I would assume since CR is now in the Business Objects "universe" that it should be possible or will be possible in the near future.

    Have you contacted BO with this question?

    If you can wait a bit longer, BO 11 is going to be released soon (It is in BETA now).
    BO 11 will allow Crystal Reports to access the BO Universe.

    Thanks mlmcc and bdreed35. But I wanted to run Crystal Reports in its native format in BO. Actually what is going to happen is that the BO universe will be amalgamated with CE, and Crystal Reports will run natively there.
