Hello All,
We recently had a migration of our app. The crystal reports have to updated with the new DB connection.
Is there any tool which can do a bulk update on all the rpt files to point to new Db.
Thanks

There are 3rd-party tools that claim to be able to do that.  I haven't used any of them so I don't know for sure if they work or not.

Ken Hamady's site has a good list of the tools and he has a review of them every year.

What's changed about the data connection?  It might just be as simple as changing the server that an ODBC DSN points to.  Is it a matter of you having moved data to a new database or a new database engine?  How do you currently access the reports?
