Converting Crystal Reports To SSRS

Apr 3, 2007

I came across a website that claimed "There are approximately 116 functions in Crystal Reports that do not have a direct equivalent in VB.NET or Reporting Services (SSRS)." Does anyone know what these functions are?

Converting Crystal Reports To SSRS Reports

Mar 27, 2008

My issue is with converting multi-value parameters:

In Crystal Reports, you can set a parameter to accept multiple vales (Discrete, Range or Discrete and Range).

As an example:

I have a database table with a column called ID.
I can create a parameter called param_id and set the options of the parameter to "Allow multiple range values".

With this setup, I can limit the result set of the report by comparing the param_id parameter to the ID column in the database. Because param_id is a multi-value range parameter, I can pass it the following data:
1 - 50
60 - 80
150 - 127

This will only return results within those ranges.

Does anyone know if SSRS provides this kind of functionality?

Seeking Advice On Converting Crystal Reports To SSRS

Aug 20, 2007

Hi. We've decided to convert our Crystal Reports to SSRS 2005. We know (thanks to this forum) there are companies that will convert the reports at a cost; however, we'd like to undertake this ourselves. Are there resources you can point us to that might be specific for Crystal Reports users coming over to SSRS, especially for newbies? Thank you.

Converting Crystal Report Formula To SSRS

Sep 17, 2007

Converting Crystal Report formula to SSRS

I've got a formula written in Crystal Reports that I'm trying to re-do in SSRS 2005. I've just been using Crystal Reports for so long, I've got a mental road-block today.

Here is the formula in Crystal Reports:
"EEE", "FFF"]

(It concatonates an asterisk to the end of FIELD2 if FIELD1 contains on of the values in the list.)

In SSRS I'd like to cause an entire row to be bold if FIELD1 contains one of the values in the list.

So in SSRS I'm putting an expression into the FontWeight properties of the TableRow and trying for something (which doesn't work yet) like:
=iif (Fields!FIELD1.Value IN ("AAA", "BBB", "CCC", "DDD", "EEE", "FFF"), "BOLD", "NORMAL")

(SSRS doesn't like the "IN" in the above statement.)

Can anyone offer a suggestion on how to write this for SSRS?



Ok. I found a workable solution. Does anyone have a better suggestion than the following? The below works but it seems it could be done more simply... Any suggestions?

=iif (Fields!FIELD1.Value = "AAA","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "BBB","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "CCC","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "DDD","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "EEE","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "FFF","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "GGG","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "HHH","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "III","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "JJJ","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "KKK","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "LLL","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "MMM","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "NNN","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "OOO","Bold",
iif(Fields!FIELD1.Value = "PPP","Bold",

Comparision Of SSRS With Crystal Reports

Apr 23, 2008

1) Crystal Reports provides extensive parameter support. The types of parameters supported are: single value, multi-value, and range value (e.g. Start date to End date), or a combination of all three.
2) SSRS parameters only support entry of a single value. It doesn't support multi-value parameters or range parameters. For example, the user can't be presented with a list of Employees and select more than one for reporting on. Doing so requires writing custom code and writing more complex SQL queries

Comparison Of SQL Server Reporting Services To Access Reports, Crystal Reports, Cognos Or Other Options

Nov 5, 2007

Hello SQL Server Experts, Data Analysts, and Report Writers et al:

re: Reporting Options with SQL Server

I wanted to propose an offshoot to the pryor thread:

Would anyone take a stab at comparing Access Reports, Crystal Reports,
Cognos or other options to all the Reporting Services and its components offered as part ofSQL Server, especially as to extracting data from SQL Server into a report format?

I guess this is a far as capabilites, ease of use, limitations, and especially formatting
or presentation of the end report product?

Thank you to all, and I hope this is a beneficial discussion to others.

Crystal Reports/SQL 7

May 3, 2001

A long shot but someone may have experienced same problem. We are using Crystal Info to run reports against a SQL 7 database. Reports that usually take 1 or 2 minutes to run are taking up to 15 minutes to run. The database is fine ie you run the query through the query analyser and it runs in 1 or 2 minutes. Any ideas... I've spoken to Seagate but not making much progress.
Thanks in advance..

SQL In Crystal Reports

Mar 20, 2007

I'm new to SQL but have quite happily been using Crystal Reports without it until now.

I am creating a letter template and it has the name at the top then the address



There is always an address 1, but maybe not a 3 or a 4, and aparently we dont want any line gaps to show, so I figured i should use an isnull to eliminate the line and to move the other address line up?

Not sure what to put though, any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help :o)

Comparison With Crystal Reports

Feb 21, 2007

I showed my boss the functionality of ad hoc reporting in SRSS and he likes it. He asked me if we could completely move away from Crystal Reports (CR) to SRSS.

Does anyone have any issues with SRSS that didnt exist in CR.

One question i have is programmability capabilities. Some time back i had to make a very complex report in CR. I create a table in the dataset. Designed the report to pull data from that table and the table was being populated through some VB.NET code. So the users will open a GUI and hit RUN, which is when i will populate the table and show the report. You can assume that populating the table required complex programming and couldnt have been done through user defined functions in a report.

I dont suppose stuff like this can be done in SRSS?

MS Reporting Services And Crystal Reports

Aug 23, 2004

Can anyone tell me if MS Reporting Services can import/read a Crystal Reports file as it can an Access report file?

I've seen a few posts out on other boards that there are some companies charging fees for converting Crystal Reports over to MS Reporting Services.

Is there any easier way? Are there any tools out there that can do it?

Perhaps Microsoft should produce such a tool for converting...

Thanks in advance for any help!!

Crystal Reports Running Slow ??

Nov 9, 2004


I have been tapped to help with fixing a reporting tool. We have a Sql Server database/crystal reports(10) setup. I havent had the chance to look at the tables in the DB yet, but I was told that aggregate tables were used. In my past experience with crystal reports, we used database views to feed crystal reports (in Oracle). I was thinking that I could somehow use views instead of tables and then try to re-index the base tables and compile satitics (if theres such a thing with Sql Server). I was also going to look into bottlenecking and locking (table locking as opposed to row or page locking for the lookup reduce overhead on the main tables) but, I'm not sure if it'll make a difference since this is just a demo server with no major traffic hitting it yet.

The question is, does anyone have any experience with crystal reports running slow with Sql Server, what should I look out for??
