Crystal Report Job Scheduler

Hi All,

We need to create a single job schedule which will create a few thousand pdf in each of few hundred locations. Current structure is a Oracle DB connected to CR 2016. The trigger created can create 1 file in 1 location. Is there any sdk or application or command line tool which can do this automatic schedule and also have a manual trigger (if needed to trigger manually)

Thanks

Avi

    There are several such tools listed on Ken Hamady's web site: https://kenhamady.com/productlinks/default.html#desktopsched

    At least one of these tools can also improve the performance of such a process by exporting to large PDF files and then electronically splitting them based on bookmarks or based on hidden Crystal formulas acting as split directives. This allows saving of dynamically named pdf files to dynamically specified/created folders at a rate of ~40 pdf files per second.

    We have tried, however, we are not able to either find the api of the report from the CR or not able to get the dynamic rpt file to give dynamic output, are we missing out something? Or, do we need enterprise version to do this?
