Automate Datamarting in the Desktop?

Automate Datamarting in the Desktop?

I am using MicroStrategy 7.1.3 and am wondering if it is possible using the SDK to add a button to the toolbar in the desktop (or some equivalent) which would automatically drill to a certain point and write the results to a database table.

  My clients swear they have seen this demonstrated somewhere, but I can't find examples of this type of customisation anywhere.

  Is it possible?  Are there any examples of this anywhere?

Thanks for your help

RE: Automate Datamarting in the Desktop?

don't think you can change anything in the desktop interface.  What they might mean is to save the report and make it a scheduled datamart report.  

RE: Automate Datamarting in the Desktop?

Thanks, I think you're right.  The MSTR sales guys got mixed up I think.  I met him and he seemed a bit out of touch... saying all desktop components are published COM objects and can therefore be fully modified.

  I think that means you can access the desktop functions from external programs, not actually change the Desktop itself.
