Modifying Crystal Report (.rpt) files


Today I was in the need to modify some text passages in a predefined crystal report file (.rpt) used by a very old application which is still an essential tool for the customer.

Of course, things like cellphone numbers, etc. change over years and that's where the need arose to change some things in the heading of the printouts of this application.
After googling a lot, I found a finally working application to modify these reoprts (the latest version of crystal report viewer didn't support these specific rpt files, because they were too old):

It's a 21-day free trial and works a treat, I have completed this task in two minutes after the download of this tool has completed. Woohoo, bookmarked ;)
