Try Crystal Report Migration Services.

http://www.crystalmigrater.com/Default.aspx

It converts rpt to SSRS 2008 format. If you have quite a lot report to convert, it is possible to change the engine for SSRS 2005 as well.

FYI .................Hey everyone this http://www.crystalmigrater.com/Default.aspx
is a fraud. They just want to bait you into paying them money and then all you get is a .pdf file. It doesn't matter if you paid or not. I have tried to contact them by email and they will not respond.

You should try http://www.crystalconversions.com, they're a Microsoft Business Intelligence Partner that you can find at: http://www.microsoft.com/bi/en-us/partners/pages/CrystalConversions.aspx

They give you free conversions so you can try before you buy.

Microsoft used to have a white paper on it here: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/whitepapers/migrate-crystal-to-reporting-services.mspx
But its gone now. I may have a copy sitting around on an old laptop...

I've done quite a few Crystal to SSRS conversions. It's painful and takes a lot of time!

I encourage you to have a look at http://www.CrystalConversions.com and make your own conclusions about whether its worth doing manually,
or pay a small amount for it to be done for you.

Found where they moved it to: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/aa964127(v=sql.90)

It was written for SQL 2005, though a lot of it is still relevant if you're doing manual conversion.
