Emailing report through CMS (ScheduleToSMTP) - Need Multi-format support

Hi All,

I have implemented the ScheduleToSMTP method for sending my crystal report as an email attachment to the users. This has been done as described in the below link(s):

http://devlibrary.businessobjects.com/businessobjectsxi/en/en/BOE_SDK/boesdk_dotNet_doc/doc/boesdk_net_doc/html/NETHowTos92.html

http://devlibrary.businessobjects.com/businessobjectsxi/en/en/BOE_SDK/boesdk_dotNet_doc/doc/boesdk_net_doc/html/NETHowTos95.html

Now, I would like to know if it is possible to have the report attached in two formats (PDF and Excel) in a single email while emailing it by the above method.

Also, I would like to understand if I can add any additional attachments (an image maybe) to this email that goes out through the CMS.

I am new to the Crystal SDK and will appreciate if the response is a little descriptive.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Regards

Ankit

    You aren't able to specify two different formats when scheduling on Business Objects.

    XI 3.x has new functionality - Publications - that allow you to do this with Crystal Reports.

    • Any questions concerning BusinessObjects Enterprise should go to:

      Expert Forums » Business Objects SDK Application Development » .NET Development - BusinessObjects Enterprise, BusinessObjects Edge, Crystal Reports Server

      The .NET Development - Crystal Reports are for the component SDK - CR.NET.

      There's currently no hook to add custom files to attachments.

      Sincerely,

      Ted Ueda

    Please post this query to the Business Objects SDK Application Development forum:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/businessobjects-sdk-forums

    In this way, we keep queries for specific technologies together which should facilitate searching of similar issues in the forums.

      Hi Ludek,

      This is currently posted in the following hierarchy:

      Expert Forums » Business Objects SDK Application Development » .NET Development - Crystal Reports

      I did not quite understand where this should be moved.

    Thanks to Ted and Ludek! It seems what I have been trying to do is not feasible in the current version of Crystal Reports. I will have to look for some workarounds to my problem.

    • Actually, neither Ted, not I were aware that you are using VB 6. I think all along we have been specifying links to .NET... Also, the your post is in the ".NET development" forum.

      The BOE SDK was never tested in VB6 and as such we have no way if it works, nor would we ever be able to get help on this from QA or R&D. The SDK is only tested in .NET...

      I do not have VB 6 code equivalent to what I sent in my previous post, but if the idea will work for you, I suspect you may get help by googling the idea for VB 6.
