Hi All,
We have the eval version of CR 2011 running on a machine with CR v.10
The eval is about to expire and we need to purchase either an upgrade or a full version of the CR 2011.
Can we upgrade straight from CR v.10 to CR 2011?
Thanks!
Megan

How are you running the reports?

I don't know of any reason you can't upgrade the reports from CR 10 to CR 2011 unless you are running from an application that is using the CR 10 dlls.

Thanks mlmcc
We just installed a new program that generates reports using CR 2011 only.
I also create custom reports here and there as needed (which is why I have the CR v. 10 on my pc). But I can use the CR 2011 to create the reports too- don't need the v. 10 anymore.

Just wasn't sure if there was a version in-between those 2 that was required in order to upgrade.
If I can upgrade from v.10 to 2011 - that would save some $$

As far as I know it is not.  There are in fact 2 version between (CR XI and CR 2008).

I would open the existing reports in CR2011 and save them to a new file.
