Can Crystal 11 execute Crystal 8.5 Reports?  The 8.5 reports were developed with custom functions.  I do not have the functions and can't get 8.5 to install in the Delphi 7 VCL.   I do have CR XI Developer but woud like some confirmation that XI can execute the 8.5 rpt files.  

Thanks.

CR XI can convert them to CR XI format.  It should be able to preview them then.

Be sure to savve the CR 8.5 files and use copies because once converted you can't go back to CR 8.5 format.
