    Future of Data Reports?


    I understand that VB6's Microsoft Data Reports are being done away with in
    VB7 and replaced with a Crystal product. Is this true? Is the Data Environment
    being kept? We were looking at using Data Reports instead of Crystal, this
    would appear to be a deadend now.

    Re: Future of Data Reports?

    Crystal is providing tools for migration from data reports (or so we have
    been told), and they are making mass changes themselves to attract customers
    (or so we have been told). This may mean that there is no good solution for
    reports at the present time, since even CR is changing so much. So you can
    just use whatever makes sense to you for the moment, and see what will
    migrate when the time comes.
