Yes, you can simply convert the reports to AL format. It will be suitable for all Business Central versions. On the other hand, if you are talking about the tool itself, it works on all NAV versions from 2015 up to the Business Central 14.00 version. So the tool itself can only be used on the RTC environment yet.
It’s not doing any deprecated fields cleaning in order to make reports easier to fix.
If you want to install the tool in your Business Central environment, you can do that for free. You can download it either from Simplanova’s FTP server or official mibuso page and install it in your system. If you would like to use the tool while converting the reports, that part is not free of charge. However, for testing purposes, we can provide you with the trial license, which will allow you to convert some of the reports that you are going to choose.
Request forms are converted to request pages by the tool.
In my knowledge, there are no such tools that convert from Classic to RDLC on AL.
The advantage is that you can convert directly from Classic to AL, you don’t need to take any additional steps. Also, it makes a couple of minor fixes on the go. You will get better results that just with Txt2AL Tool.
It will create language files for all languages.
Well, it’s the same as in C/AL.
It converts Classic reports to RDLC, and moves RDLC reports to AL language.
