I have created a report in Oracle report writer.  I have also compiled this report to a .REP file.  What do I need to do to make this report available for someone to run on the client side simply by clicking on the report if I send them a copy?

They need to have the Reports Runtime executable installed on their PC, and to have the file extension .rep associated with it (which I believe is done by the installation process anyway).

They have the runtime exe installed.  How do I associate that report with the report runtime exe. so it will run without asking for the database login?

Your help is GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks.  barbara

Don't forget to set a registry variable REPORTS60_PATH, too.

.. or set the start directory behind this link to the directory this report is saved in.
