Writing data to log file

Is it possible to write data to a log (text) file from within Crystal Reports, possibly in a UFL? Is there a way that's already built in to CR?

Thanks.

Ron

    Ido - thanks for the link. This will help.

    Don,

    Not exporting a report to a text file. More like logging report events. One of my report developers was thinking of maybe tracking the start/stop times of each publication per person as well as the full run time.

    I hope I explained that correctly. 😊

    Thanks.

    Ron

    Yes. At least one of the UFLs listed at http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html provides that functionality.

    Also, one of the Crystal viewers listed at that site can log report processing to a text file or to an ODBC table.

    Hi Ron,

    What is it you want to log? The functions CR is doing or simply export a report to a text file and rename it to *.log?

    Thank you

    Don
