Converting old Crystal 7 Info Server reports to Crystal 11

I have just been asked by our IT Department to begin a project to convert some crystal reports that have been in use for about 15 years on an old version of InfoServer.  They are written in Crystal 7.

I have been asked to do this because I have a copy of Crystal 11 , so I guess that makes me the resident expert.

Anything jump out at any of you real experts that I may need to know as I begin this project?  I haven't even seen the reports and won't have access to them for a few days.  

The bottom line is this, our company has merged with another company and we are trying to upgrade some very old technology.  One of the items to be updated is the back end source to these reports.  We also need to get a new crystal server solution... but they don't know what that is going to be yet... so, my guess is, they want me to do this now so it won't have to be done in the 11th hour once the solution is dertermined.

Of course, that is just a guess, it's not like I am told anything...    :)
