Crystal Reports 9 & SQL 2008 Compatibility

Does anyone know if Crystal Reports 9.0 runtime is compatibile with SQL Server 2008?  I know its most likely not supported, but will it work?  If not does anyone know what version of Crystal Reports runtime is comapatible?

We use Crystal Reports XI (11.5) to connect up to our 64-bit 2008 SQL Server and everything works fine. Prior to upgrading some desktops, we had an older version of CR on some machines that also seemed to work. I believe it was version 10.

Most likely, if you can connect up to the DB via the MS SQL ODBC connection successfully, it should work fine.

Agree.  If you can find a database connection that works it should work.

Remember CR9 is strictly 32-bit

If you can get CR 9 connected, I suppose there could be some features in SQL Server 2008 that might be a problem.  I don't know much about SQL 2008, but they did add a date data type (as opposed to datetime).  I have no idea if CR 9 would know how to handle that.  There could be other things that might cause problems for CR 9.  Just something to keep in mind.
