How to edit Crystal report on Terminal server connection?


Hello experts, I have Crystal 2011 licensed on my local machine and access SAP via Terminal Service. When I try to edit a report in SAP, Crystal on the Terminal machine asks for new License. When I try to Export the report to my local machine where my licensed copy of Crystal is installed, I get a B1px file?

How can I edit my reports in SAP on my local machine? Can my local license be moved to the terminal machine? Can I modify the report that is located in the B1px file on my local machine? What is up with this SAP?

Thanks in advance for any response,

Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I don't think there's a way to export a Crystal layout from the Print & Layout Manager screen in rpt format. It assumes that your Crystal Designer is on the same machine as your SBO client.

    There is a workaround:

    1) Preview your report in the SBO client.

    2) In the preview screen, there should be an Export icon on the top-left. Click on this, make sure that the 'Save as type' is set to 'Crystal Reports (*.rpt)', and then select a path and filename for your export.

    3) You can then open the rpt file and edit it on your local designer.

    4) When you are ready to reimport, if you want to overwrite the old version, make sure that you use the same report file name and just import the new rpt file from within Print & Layout Manager to the same location and you'll be prompted to confirm the overwrite.

    Kind Regards,

    Owen

    Hi Mike,

    To clarify, are you using CR 2011 for Business One? Asking because I have never heard of a B1px file and possibly "B1" of the file extension refers to Business One product.

    If you are I can move this post top that forum.

    Thanks
