Can a version 8 report be opened in XI, modified and saved back to Version 8?
Posted on 2011-09-08
I think I know the answer, but have to ask. I'm a consultant and I have a client that has an application that uses Crystal Reports 8 or 8.5 as the reporting version. I need to modify reports for this client but I only have CR XI operational at the moment.
Can I open the version 8 report in version XI, make slight TEXTUAL modifications and save BACK TO version 8? I think not right?
If not, ... do you know that IF I only make TEXTUAL / HEADING types of changes.... will their application be able to use the SAVED/MODIFIED report?
Finally, can version 8 or 8.5 run on the same machine as versoin XI? Is there a place to download version 8 for free...????
Any input would be much appreciated.
