Hi,

I have created a custom report that connects to a Epicor SQL Server database.  How can I import (or attach) this report in Epicor so that it can be run within the Epicor application (not just in Crystal).

thanks!!

Do you control the Epicor application source code?

Does Epicor allow you to import your own reports?

Epicor is suppose to allow you to import Crystal reports into the application through the GUI.  I am just not sure if there needs to be a special module purchased or what.

That I don't know.  You probably need to talk with the Epicor company.

You need to use the menu customization tool in epicor to add the menu item and define it as an external crystal report, set the security and paths, ect...

We run epicor 8 and I do this all the time - its hard to walk through but if you call Epicor support, they can walk you through it.  Its fairly simple once you do the first one.
