Copying Historical Reports

Copying Historical Reports

Copying Historical Reports

Need to copy a few hundred historical reports (instances) over to a PDF (or some other format which can be viewed by a user w/o Business Objects), and would appreciate if someone has an idea how this is possible without having to open each one individually in BO and then exporting it as a PDF.

For the record, using BOXI R2 and Crystal Reports 11.5.

Again, thanks for any ideas!

RE: Copying Historical Reports

If you have access to the BOXI r2 SDK, you can write a program in either Visual Studio (VB .NET or C# .NET) or Java to automate this process. Short of that, there's no other way to make this happen.
