Hey everyone..........I have a general question.
Has anyone had experience with any third party software that can be used for scheduling Crystal Reports to run and export to a pdf file.
My criteria is as follows: I will need to run about 30-40 reports at night and all of the CR(s) will need to be converted to PDF files and then moved to a specific network location. I can write some maintenance scripts for the moving the files around the network, but I do need the scheduling and automation software. I have investigated Crystal Enterprise and another solution called rePortal that will do these things. Crystal Enterprise is so expensive for our small business that it isnt even a foggy dream. The rePortal program is around 3000, but I was hoping for some other suggestions on programs out there. I really want a proven program to do this scheduling and converting to pdfs instead of coming up with my own coded solution.
One final note..... My end users will Never run these reports ad hoc and will never have crystall installed on their destops. All they need is the files.....
Any advice woluld be greatly appreciated.
