DOWNLOAD Crystal Report in PDF format on Server

We are using the open document to call the crystal report directly to generate a PDF output that can be viewed in the Browser but we want it store on server or any Central Location//

Let me elaborate my quest more

I have a link on which if user click from any location that link will open a report in PDF and then we can download it manually.

Now what i did is i made some setting in my machine Chrome browser so instead of opening the report in browser it will directly downloading in my machine . But this is not best solution and limited to myself only.

CAN we add something in our link by which we can directly download the report in PDF format and that too on BO server or any central disk location not on clients machine ? (Means if the user is at any location and if he hits that link the report get auto downloaded into our SAP BO Server C: derive) not on client machine.

    Hi Suraj,

    There is no way to have openDoc download to BO Server/Shared Drive.

    You should be able to 'schedule' the report to a destination though.

    But the report is already in central location in the BOE server.
    When you call the opendoc link it pulls report from that central location to user machine, so why would you want to do this again by storing it back to central location or BOE, instead of accessing report from BOE again ?

    What is your use case scenario and business need ?
