Hi,

New to this area. Can you help me with a few questions?

I want to create a bunch of users and publish 1 report.

Q1. Schedule the report to execute for each user
Q2. Each user to only see his version of the report on VIEW LATEST INSTANCE.

Is this possible? If so, where and what acess rights to I assign the user.

TIA

Thanks,

Iain

What version of Crystal?

What scheduling tools do you have?

You want to do what is called "bursting" the report.

There are 3rd-party tools that can handle what you want.

I haven't used CR2008 Server so I am not sure if the bursting support was added or not.  I have heard it is added to either CR2008 or CR2011.

Hi,

Yes, it's there. Trying to work it out! It can be done via InfoView. It sounds like what I need, but I can't quite piece it together!
