Scheduled report in BO 5.1


<p>Hello Gurus,</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>I am new to Business Objects, just started using it last month</p><p>I have a particular requirement: i need to run a scheduled report query in business objects, then the output is to be written to a flat file.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>What do i need to do this? Do i need a Job Server?</p><p>or can i create a tool that i can run on my local PC that will connect to BO in the background to perform the report query? the Output of the report will be a flat file Does BO allow background connections?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>planning to use SAP XI as the tool that will have a scheduled job to connect to BO and generate query then have the send back the result to XI as a flat file.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>can anyone help or give me advice if such scenario is possible with Business Objecs <br /></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
