    As a precurser, the scheduling of reports using third party tools is not supported since our product has that ability as a feature. Having said that, I'll proceed with a little information on how it has been done.

    An approach I have found on older forums was to create a java application that could be called from the command line. Our JAVA SDK can be used for the actual scheduling. I have some code that can be sent to you to work with.

    If you are looking for an approach using something other than JAVA, then I can not be of assistance. However, the .NET or com SDK may offer a similar solution.

    In essence, Control-M can be used to fire off the java application to do the scheduling. It seems like quite a bit of work to do something that can be done using the built in scheduling tools, but I may not know the full picture.
