Load, modify, save old report without converting

edited January 2017 in General
Hi,

on upgrading from 5.56 to 18.0 i will have to do some conversions.
This conversions can be done while loading the old report in 18.0
While converting I need the name of the report which not always
correspond to the name in our database on which i have to do the
conversions.

My idea is to open the report without converting, update the name,
saved it back and reopen it with converting using the correct name.


Can I open an old report, modify and save it to the database without
starting the conversion.

I already read through the code but found no way to do it.

    Hi Carsten,

    The rbWiki article contains downloadable code examples for loading a
    template from a blob field, converting it from binary to text. So you can
    then edit the template text - same format as the Delphi .dfm.
