What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

(OP)
Hi,

I have the Crystal XI and loads of reports, but I can no longer share them.  I have tried:

Merge Modules - couldn't get it to work
Crystal Viewer - can't change report parameters when refreshing, therefore useless.

Is my only option either Crystal reports server or going back to school and becoming a developer?

SAP & Business Objects seem intent on destroying what was once a great product.

Thx

Dennis

RE: What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?



call or email Ido Millet at Millet Software

http://www.milletsoftware.com/contact.htm

I can personally recommend his software.  We have been using it for about 2 years.  It is in-expensive and it works.

RE: What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

I agree, Millet Software's data link viewer is the way to go.  He also has Visual CUT, which can do anything that Event Manager can do with a scheduled crystal report (Disclaimer-I am talking ONLY about scheduled crystal reports, there are lots of other great reasons to buy Event Manager), for about 1/10th the cost.

RE: What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

If you're using Macola ES, you can simply add you reports to the menu and they'll use ES's built-in report viewre to prompt for parameters and run the report - no third party software required;

A million thanks guys!

RE: What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

I still use Crystal 8.5 so I can compile/distribute.

RE: What are Macola`s clients using for distributing Crystal reports?

2 options I've used other than adding to the MES menu (for users that don't have Macola access).

1-Set up a one step work flow in Synergy that accepts the parameters, then have event manager run the report and email to the user based on the parameters they entered.

2- Try http://www.logicitysuite.com/ They have a free (ad supported) viewer that works really well.
