Wyn Enterprise: Convert Crystal Reports/MS Access Reports to Wyn Reports
You can convert a Crystal Reports report and/or a Microsoft Access report to Wyn Reports by running the ActiveReports Import Wizard.
Importing Crystal reports/MS Access Reports in the ActiveReports Import Wizard
Run the ActiveReports Import Wizard. The wizard can be run from the start menu or by executing GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Imports.Win.exe from C:\Program Files\Wyn Enterprise\Tools\ActiveReportsTool location.
In the ActiveReports Import Wizard that appears, click Next.
Choose Microsoft Access (mdb or accdb) or Crystal Reports (rpt) as the input format and click Next.
Click the ellipsis button to browse to the location that contains the files that you want to import. A list of files that you can import appears.
Select the reports to import, click Open, and then click Next to analyze them.
Use the ellipsis button to select a destination folder to store the converted reports. Also select an output format (Section Report, Page Report or RDL Report or Both) for each report in the Output Format column.
Click Next to start the conversion.
Once the conversion process is complete, click Finish to close the wizard and go the destination folder to view the converted reports. You may optionally leave the check on for the Open Log file checkbox to see the results log.
The import wizard converts reports to the closest possible format, but due to differences between products and versions, the extent to which your reports are converted depends on your specific report layout. You may have to partially redesign the report and add script or code to get the same output as Microsoft Access Reports or Crystal Reports.
When converting to Page Reports or RDL Reports, whether a report is imported as a Page Report or RDL Report, depends on the following factors:
• If a report has a single detail section it is imported as a Page Report.
• If a report has a CrossTab control and its layout is composed of multiple sections it is imported as an RDL Report.
Note: Sections in a report appear as BandedList.
Please refer to the additional information below, to understand the conversion process in detail.

Limitations in Crystal Report/MS Access conversion
• Any controls, functions, and text formats which are not supported by Wyn Enterprise are not imported.
• The shadow property of a control is not imported while converting a report.
• The OLE object is not imported as it is treated as PictureObject in the object structure of Crystal Reports.
• In Microsoft Access reports, VBA code appears in as commented statements in script. You have to modify the code after importing.
