2.17. Converting Crystal Ball Models

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x

I have developed a model in Crystal Ball, but I would like to run it in @RISK. Can @RISK run Crystal Ball models?

Starting with @RISK release 6.0, an automatic converter in @RISK lets you open and run risk models that were created in Crystal Ball 7.3 or later.  (You must have Crystal Ball and @RISK on the same computer.) 

When you open a Crystal Ball spreadsheet, @RISK will ask if you want to convert your model; or you can start a conversion with the Utilities » Convert Workbook command.  @RISK will convert Crystal Ball distributions and other model elements to native @RISK functions. 


Certain features cannot be converted automatically. See the topic "Restrictions and Limitations" in the @RISK help file (Help » Documentation » Help). If @RISK finds one of these features, it will display an error or warning message in the conversion summary.
