I currently have more than 300 crystal reports that need to migrated. The issue is that all of it was written using crystal syntax instead of vb. Is there any tool that will make the conversion process faster as it take a lot of effort change the coding and will require additional manpower.

why don't you keep your formula in Crystal syntax?

All the reports were written in CR 8.5 and now we going to migrate them to SQL Server Reporting Services.
Since all the formulas are in crystal syntax i assume that they need to be converted to VB to be used in Visual Studio environment.

Actually i am very new to CR or SQL Reporting services as i come from an AS/400 background, but have been given the task to find simplest/quickest way to accomplish this task.

the bad news is that there is more then just formulas to convert! and the formulas syntax (even if it is in VB) is not the same from CR to SSRS. I am afraid that it will be a big manual conversion.

I agree.  I am just starting to learn SSRS and the products are totally different.  The learning curve may be steep.

What is the reason for changing tools?
