Schedule Report to SharePoint

Schedule Report to SharePoint

Schedule Report to SharePoint


I'm trying to schedule a report in Enterprise to be sent as a PDF to a SharePoint site using \\server\site\folder, but I'm receiving the following error:

Error Message: source file error. [CrystalEnterprise.DiskUnmanaged]: [Invalid argument]

I've verified that I can schedule and successfully run the same report to a shared network folder on the same server. The user has access to the network folder and the SharePoint site.

Any ideas?

Once you click on above link, it will open below page and you can create a new
email account and specify parameters.
Incoming E-mail => need to set it ‘Yes’ and then can create own email account by
just typing the name.
E-mail Attachments => This gives you flexibility to save only attachments can
group the attachments and overwrite the attachments.
E-Mail Message => if you want to store massage also along with attachment then
set it yes, otherwise no. So if no is selected then it will save only attachment but
not the message.

from users you has access to SharePoint site. (Important: If you select security
