Can I Print a Report Package

Can I Print a Report Package

Can I Print a Report Package

I need to print 3 reports together, all at once.  I found the Report Package, which ties all 3 together, BUT the only options I have when I go to schedule the package is Disk or Channel.  No printer option.  I would like to be able to print the combined reports together.
Thanks very much for your help.

RE: Can I Print a Report Package

That's a good idea.  I make up a test report, and it works fine when I print it directly from Crystal Reports.  The only problem I have now is the report with the subreport will not print in Seagate Info.  It almost appears that Info has trouble printing reports with subreports.  Can that be right?

RE: Can I Print a Report Package

Info does print reports with subreports, as long as the 'No Printer' checkbox is off in the report.

RE: Can I Print a Report Package

I checked, and No Printer is not checked in either the main, or subreport.  I still can not get the report/subreport to print in Info.
My main report is simply a cover page put in the report header section, and the subreport put into the detail section.  That should work right?

RE: Can I Print a Report Package

Thanks for all the responces, but I am still having trouble running the report.  In Info, I get a "failed" message, and in Crystal Reports when I try running the report, it only runs whats in the Report Header Section.  It is ONLY when I page down does the report seem to realize that there is a sub-report to run.  I tried placing the sub-report in different sections, but it does not make a difference.
Thanks again for all your help.

RE: Can I Print a Report Package

The problem you're describing sounds like a non suppressed detail section.

Suppress everything but the report footer, if you have the details section in the container report, it might not see the subreport until the next page.

Do you have a table in the container report? You may not be able to update without one, just don't select anything to display, and don't link.

Subreports in report footers work, I do it often.



RE: Can I Print a Report Package

Great! That seems to have done it.  I put both fields in the Header Section, and suppressed them.  The cover page, and report printed out fine.

Thanks again, this really helped, and saved me hours of research.
