Hi,

Is  there any way to specify print job name when printing report? I'm failing to find... :(
In print spooler all jobs from Crystal are appearing as "document" and people can't recognize different reports.

Thanks in advance

long8,

To the best of my knowledge this isn't possible.  

I found documentation stating that it can't be changed in web apps ( http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2008257.asp ) because the name is actually generated by a Windows API not by Crystal.  Given that it's a pretty safe assumption that the same thing applies to Windows applications.

Emre,

I don't see how these links pertain to this question - did you mistakenly post in the wrong thread?

afaik, the solution above can set the print file name, not the print job name (in the Print queue).
I haven't found a way to control the print job name from within the RDC.

In my Visual CUT software, I solved this issue by changing the print job name immediately AFTER it gets added to the queue.  Visual CUT sets the print job name to the option specified as the export file name (even if the settings are set to simply print without actual exporting to a file).  

To do the same in your own application, you need to a) locate the job in the queue and b) change its name.

Cheers,
