Print Multiple Reports Based on Multiple Parameters

We currently have a Crystal Report that displays manhours expended by Job Number, Date, and Craft Name.  So the User currently enters the above 3 data entries into the appropriate entry boxes of the Crytstal Reports Parameters Window.  The User then prints the report and then re-enters the Job Number and Date, and changing the Craft Name as required.

Is there any way of automating this process  in Crystal, maybe entering more than one Craft Name in the Craft Name entry box (maybe comma delimited?), and then loop through each Craft Name and print (not print preview) a separate report for each Craft Name?

The psuedo-code would look something like this:
Parameter 1 = Job Number 1
Parameter 2 = July 1, 2008
Parameter 3 = Welder, Carpenter, Pipefitter, Painter

For each Craft in Parameter 3
     Print Report for [Parameter 1], [Parameter 2], [Parameter 3]
Next Craft

Thanks for your help,
Greg

If the report is grouped by Craft within Job number wouldn't that do what you want?

I need a separate report for each craft, showing only the manhours for their craft (Not a single report grouped by Craft Name).  The intent is that each craft only sees the manhours and other associated data for thier respective craft.

Then the answer is No - you cannot do this from within CR on its own.

You may be able to create separate reports using third party addins or through the use of a 'driver program' written in VB say.

Look at www.kenhamady.com for add-ins.

This type of functionality is called report bursting.  There is at least one Report Manager listed at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html that provides this functionality whereby a single report generates a seperate printout/export/email for each group level 1 within the report.

To stop the tap dancing around the answer, look for Visual Cut.

If you decide that is the solutiion, provide the point to the comment above.
