How to run multiple crystal reports at one click

Hello,

I have developed many financial reports, now I'm trying to setup some easy process for my users, so that they can run one process which will run all those financial reports one after other. But so far I did not find anything that will give me such type of ability to run. Is any one has any idea as how do i achieve/set up such process to run reports in a workflow manner?

Any help/information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

    See list of report automation tools here: https://kenhamady.com/productlinks/default.html#desktopsched

    Some of these tools make it very easy to to trigger processing for multiple reports from a single batch file or from a scheduled task.

    • Hello,

      Thanks for sending this URL.So I reviewed couple of tools from the list, one of them is Visual CUT, in that i can list the reports but it does not allow me to run all those reports with one click? or may be I'm missing something here? If you know can you please let me know how to run multiple reports with one click in Visual CUT?

      Thanks again.

    You insert multiple calls to Visual CUT inside a single batch file.
    The command lines inside the batch files would be executed one after the other.

    You can schedule the batch file. Or you can simply double-click to launch it.

    You can create the batch file using Notepad or you can let Visual CUT create it for you. If the batch file already exists, Visual CUT adds the command line to it.

    • Hello,

      Thanks for your reply. In Visual CUT on "SelectReport" tab I have listed all reports that i wanted to run. Now when i click on "Preview" Tab I can see the output for the report. But when I tried to schedule it by selecting the "Schedule" icon from the left hand side menu, and click on "Add Task" from the scheduler window, go through all tabs to setup a new task. But when I click "OK" at the end of the "Create new Task" window, I was expecting to see a new task listed on the "Schedule Task" window but I do not see it. I tried couple times but it was not listed. Is it because I'm using the trial version?

      Thank you.

    Or you can write you're own code using the Crystal for VS (.NET) or Crystal for Eclipse (Java) SDKs.

    DAX, this forum is for Crystal Reports.
    Tech support questions for 3rd-party tools should be directed to tech support for those products.
