Is text export possible for CR9 via .NET web application?

CR9 Developer edition
.NET web application (lang = VB.NET)

We've got a nice mechanism in the web app where you can add a .rpt file and make a report available through the web interface, but I am told txt/csv export is not possible in this way, yet we do have export to Excel, Word and PDF available on all reports.

Our lead developer seems to think that this feature isn't available in CR9 and buying CR10 might resolve the issue, but I haven't been able to find any documentation to support this. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Or, if it is possible to do in CR9 explain how.

You can export to txt/csv with CR9.  I do it routinely (I'm using CR9 Pro but I can't imagine such an elementary function wouldn't be part of the developer edition).

When CR is installed you can customize which export options are installed so it's possible that you don't have this one available but a reinstallation with the correct option should solve that problem.

All is fine. Sorry for the delay, but we had other priorities. Anyway you were spot on and we've got it working now.
I'm glad to hear that :)

Happy programming!
