We are updating an app with 120 CR reports to a web app.

Progress (formally Telerik) makes a viable solution. It is also capable of importing simple CR reports. Their support is rather good. Depending on the option purchased, they have immediate phone support.

We are testing Progress, DevExpress, Grapevine, and a homegrown solution.

DevExpress has good support. I haven't tried Grapevine's.

Even old versions of CR (8.5) have conditional formatted abilities that none of the current solutions offer. An example is splitting a "section" into A,B,C, etc. with each having its own logic.

Let us know what you decide, if you don't mind.
