    Depends on what version of Corel.

    CD can export as an ai file. Generally it works, but text is suspect. Clip art from CD is in a compressed form that can't be directly be imported in AI regardless of the version. Opening the art and saving fixes, and if in doubt, save as an ai file from CD.

    PS. Whatever happened to Bob Hill? He used to answer most of the CD questions.

    Usually you can open in Illustrator the previous version of Corel.
    So in Illus 9 you could most likely open CorelDraw CDR files v7, possibly v8. (Not sure).

    In CS2 you can open Coreldraw version 10 files directly. V11 and v12 don't work.

    I think CorelDRAW does a better job exporting in EPS than AI. I have seen some artwork get a bit corrupted (such as very small objects) when exported in AI format. EPS seems to work better.

    Still, there's lots of issues to avoid when exporting CorelDRAW artwork to Illustrator. Powerclip effects, gradient fills and other Corel-dependent effects can have issues when brought into Illustrator.

    In general, I'll use CorelDRAW to build up some pretty technical vector-based objects. But when bringing them into Illustrator I give them only solid fills and no outline strokes. I prefer to rebuild gradient effects and such within Illustrator to avoid banding issues.
