Compiled V8 reports and parameters

Compiled V8 reports and parameters

Compiled V8 reports and parameters

(OP)
When trying to run a V8 compiled report against ORACL8i with ODBC driver the report scheduals fine but the parameters are asked for at the schedualed time not during the setup.

Is something missing? maybe a dll or something?

David,
You are right.

I am using the Crystal scr8_distribution down load file which back engineers V8
to have a compiled report and distribution method. It was the forrunner to the Web Compiled reports.

RE: Compiled V8 reports and parameters

Unfortunately, this is a weakness of the compile reports feature.  If you have parameters, you can't really use the delay function.  There is no workaround, except to drop the parameters and "hard code" the values in the report before scheduling it.

Thanks Ken.

Was this an issue with Seagate info schedualling as well?

RE: Compiled V8 reports and parameters

I haven't used Info scheduling, but I seem to remember hearing that Info would hold the parameter until the time came.  Crystal does not.
