How to export as HTML


We are currently using crystal reports server (Version11.5) to schedule and deliver reports. What we would like to do is schedule reports to be generated on the Crystal reports server and then save the results to a file location where they can be viewed by an outside web application. What we are interested in is getting chart data out of these reports and putting the charts on a webpage. I see in the Crystal reports designer we can export to HTML and the chart is converted to a PNG image. This image is what we would like to put on a different website, however in Crystal reports server there is no option to export to HTML. I find this an odd limitation that you can manually export to HTML but you can't automate exporting to HTML through Crystal Reports server. Does anyone know if this truly is a limitation of Crystal Reports server or is there a way to configure it to allow this export option?

    you can try to export your report in to HTML format through CMC.


    1. Export your crystal report in to prodcution repository in particular folder.

    2. login in to CMC and select report from particular folder.

    3. Right click selected report and select schedule option.

    4. In schedule option set timings and what format it should post file,select HTML and give path where it should post your report file.

    lets try with this option and let me know your update.

      Hello Patrick,

      Thank you for the suggestion. We do not use apache for our server so the java solution will not solve our issue. I'm guessing this must be a limitation of our version of Crystal Reports server and that this feature has been added in the 2008+ versions to export scheduled reports to HTML..
