Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Are there any problems converting existing reports from QR version 3 to the latest version?

Your old reports won't need any changes in logic or component replacement. You may need to reset some defaults for new properties. If the old report designs are 'formless', i.e. they have a quickrep component that is not on a form, some changes might be necessary for the latest Delphi.
