If you have a large base of Crystal reports, converting them to the Report Definition Language (RDL) format used by SSRS will not be a simple task. htm) offers a service that does the same thing. Both companies can only perform a partial (60 percent or better) conversion. These products can convert page headers and footers, field position and formatting, special fields, formulas, groups, and parameters. Other features will not convert and need to be handled manually. The report formats are too different to allow the creation of a single tool that can take any Crystal report and output it to the RDL format without further modification required.
SSRS does not work this way. The reports can only run on the server middleware, and there are no runtime DLLs that will allow an RDL file to execute independent of the server software. Thus, SSRS would not work for applications distributed to the general public. SSRS has fewer export options than BO XI—Excel, PDF, MHTML, TIFF, XML, and ASCII only. BO XI does not support TIFF, XML, or MHTML but offers many others that SSRS does not support. MHTML is a self-contained web file that embeds images within the report.
The only switch setting that technical support may instruct you to add is the -trace option. 5\Logging directory. Should you wish to send the log files elsewhere, use the -loggingPath switch like this: -loggingPath c:\temp These files contain server activity and debugging information which you can send to technical support to aid them in diagnosing your problem. Each log file contains four columns: the time stamp; the process ID; the thread ID, which is the ID of the subprocess reporting the information; and the message which described what’s happening.
