Email crystal reports from clarion 6.3

Im using clarion 6.3 and crystal reports.

My client generates a report ex. of 300 pages. Certain pages are for a different students.

I can export the report no problem but now its one pdf file. how do I "extract" certain pages for certain students and mail just those certain pages to the correct students?

there is no native functionality for doing this. you have to generate PDF for only selected student and send it to concern person. or/else you have to manually separate the pages and send it in email.

This would entail your report knowing ahead of time which students to run the report for, exlusively so as to email them.

Probably a better use of this type of report is to have it in an Enterprise WEB accessible area where students can come and run for themselves and then have it emailed to themselves.

It can be done, but NOT within Crystal itself.

Also, SQL Server and many other database programs have emailing capabilities, if this is a must requirement I'd check into your database vendor to see if this can be handled there. However to run a single report for multiple students AND ask the report to email each student...is really NOT a function that Crystal was designed for...by choice since it is a rare requirement.

Bottom line is that I would seek outside of Crystal on this one...if SQL Server is your Database, I'd look there for a solution.

Hope it helps

This is called report "bursting" and at least one of the 3rd-party Crystal report managers listed at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html can do exactly that.  It dynamically burst the report so that each student becomes a separate export/email using dynamic information in the report to name the export file, email the result, etc.

I agree.  A third-party solution is probably the easiest.
