Run Crystal Reports from a Command Line

Hello,

I have searched through the forum and have come up with 2 different answers. Some people say it can be done others say the opposite. Can you please tell me if it is possible to run a crystal report from the command line. Basically, we have an external application that relies on the user to run. This can be done at any time, any day. Once this has run, we then want the application to autmoatically kick off the crystal report.. The crystal report has been set up so that it is emailed to a number of users, pdf format etc. Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Prakash

    What do you mean with "running a report" from the command line?

    You can open Crystal Reports and pass a report file as a parameter, e.g.

    C:\"Business Objects"\"BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0"\win32_x86\crw32.exe C:\report.rpt

    Cheers,

    Fritz
