Convert vbscript ASP Crystal reports code to .NET
Posted on 2009-06-26
I have vbscript ASP code that reads the rpt file then prompts the user for any parameters in the report, then runs the report passing in the parameter values.. The code does many things along with email and scheduling reports. I created it for Crystal Reports - Report Application Server (RAS) on version 9.. have modified over the years for 10, 11, XI (and Crystal Reports Enterprise Server XI R2)...
Now with Crystal Reports 2008 they have dropped the COM SDK which are the API calls I was using in the asp code.. Crystal Reports Enterprise Server 2008 currently only support Java.. I don't want to use Java.. They are releasing close to the end of the year a .NET version..
the code for the new .NET version will be similar to the current XI R2 .NET, so I can go ahead and start working on converting all my ASP code over to .NET.. but I have no clue where to begin.. I own Visual Studio 2008.. but have very little experience with it..
Any recommendations on where to begin? or get help?
