Hi All ,
I am using Crystal Report 9 . We display the crystal reports on our intranet , our jsp calls an asp page  which in turn calls the crystal report file .
                     Now we want to provide an interface where the user can select more then one report and Submit . Behind the scene these selected reports should be directly converted to there PDF format and saved to some location on the NT server where our crystal report RDC is installed .

First : Is it possible to convert the report to there PDF format ,without any more user intercation

Second : Can they be saved to some specific location .

Thanks in advance to all
Regards
Kshitij

As far as I know the answer to both is yes.  I know it can be done from a VB app so I assume it can be done from ASP.

Hi All ,
The report can be saved into its PDF format into a specified location of the NT Machine where our Crystal Report is installed . The problem still is that how can i perform batch PDF generation of the multiple reports selected by the user . The way how we call the ASP page is as follows :

http://10.192.10.132/crystal/TravelPilotSummary.asp?prompt0=123&prompt1=411,402,403,404,111&prompt2=Navigation+Product+PLN-BP&prompt3=Advanced,Delayed,In+Production,No+change,On-Schedule,Proposed,Available,New .
Can we call this ASP page and keep changing the report name in this report at run time .

Thanks
Kshitij
