Run Report twice a day not 12 hours apart

Run Report twice a day not 12 hours apart

Hi, I know how to schedule a report to run 12 hours apart but I need to schedule a report to run at 8:00AM then again at 2:00PM. I don't see any good selection Daily isn't right nor is every X hours since I only want the second 6 hours after the first then not again for 18 hours. Can I do this with one report or do I have to use a copy scheduled at a different time for the second run? I have Crystal Enterprise 10.0 TIA Chris

RE: Run Report twice a day not 12 hours apart

You'll have to create two daily schedules - one for the 8 am run and the other for the 2 pm run.  There's no way to do this from a single scheduled instance.


A computer only does what you actually told it to do - not what you thought you told it to do.

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks Chris
