Changing the file name at scheduling

Changing the file name at scheduling

Changing the file name at scheduling

Hi and thank you for your time!

Is it possible to change the extracted Excel file name at the time of scheduling to an external File Sytem (Destination) by using some of the data fields within the report instead of just the available Place Holders?

Thank you,


RE: Changing the file name at scheduling

No, unfortunately, this functionality is not available.

Some of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports schedulers listed at http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html allow you to dynamically set the export file name (and folder) based on fields/formulas inside the report.
