When using File/Save As, the name of the report appears in the dialog box.  Is there a way to use a formula to change the file name that appears in the Save As box?

Example:  File/Save As would say the report name "Invoice.rpt"

I want to use a formula to change to such as:  "Jones 12345 Invoice" where "Jones" and "12345" would be added by the formula.

Within crystal there is no way to achieve this. But i am sure there are outside resouces like asp or .net that if you had an interface you could do it. Within Inforview/CMC when you schedule or run the report now you have that option.
