How can you move a report from one DB to another?

I've just designed and rolled out a new ACT database. But I have a custom report in my old database that I would like to move to the new db instead of recreating the entire thing.

 

Is it possible to somehow move a report(s) from one database to another?

Sure, just copy the report template from the reports folder in the database supplemental file to the reports folder for the new database. However, be prepared for the template not working with the new database. Custom report templates typically are database specific.
