I’ve been asked many times if Microsoft provide a tool for converting legacy Crystal Reports to SQL Server Reporting Services. The answer is no. However I do know someone who does.
Hitachi Consulting has an RDL generator that will generate RDL from Crystal Report formats. They’re in the States but I’m sure they’ll be able to help UK customers.
You can find a link to their site from this list of all our Reporting Services consulting partners: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/reporting/partners/consulting.asp

I realize this is an old post, but I'm trying to clear up misinformation that is still posted.
I run the RptToSQL.Com website (which is now RptToRdl.Com). It was a legit site in 2005, and it is now, too. We are an authorized Microsoft ISV now for converting to Reporting Services. Please post this new information on your website. Right now, we charge just $25 per report to convert.
Thanks, and let me know if you have any additional questions.
