How to programmatically refresh list of values status on CR server XI R2?

25 Views

Hi,

How can I programmatically refresh list of values status on CR server XI R2?

Currently, after I modified the data source in the data connection, some of the LOVs in the report prompt window became empty when I tried to generate the report. I have to use Business View Manager to log onto the Crystal reports server XI R2, find and double click the list of values object to bring up the Edit LOV window, and then click on "Refresh Status" button to make the LOV available in the report prompt window.

What SDK should I use to create a simple application (preferable a desktop application) to find all LOV objects on CR server XI R2 and to refresh their status? That is an application similar to the "Refresh Status" function in Business View Manager.

I found Report Engine SDK has the Lov.Refresh function to refresh LOV. On the other hand, Report Engine SDK seems to be for BusinessObjects Enterprise, not for Crystal Reports Server. Can this or other function achieve what I want, i.e. to refresh list of values status on CR server XI R2? If yes, can I use it to develop a self-contained desktop application instead of a web application? I only need to run this application after I modify the data source in the data connection, so I prefer not need to deploy it as a web service.

Thanks for your help.
