Report in Dynamic CRM

 Is it possible to create report ( i mean  letters ) in dynamic CRM and run it automatically based on the required frequency( daily two times etc..).

Here is the sample letter.  I want to do this in dynamic CRM.  Letter should be placed on "network shared folder"  so that it will be picked up for printing.

Dear [name from database],

                                                                                               [scanned signature goes here]


Is it possible to achieve this using  "Dynamic CRM mail merge feature". i am using Dynamic crm 4.0.

i know in SSRS there is  subscription feature 'file share delivery' option. But how to achieve this in Dynamic CRM. Also for some type of letters i should  generate as "pdf"  and some as ".word" and place them on network shared folder for printing.

Please let me know.

Hi ram27,

No it is not possible to achieve using Mail merge. However you could write a console/WinForms app or a Windows service to achieve the same.

The article that you have mentioned regarding the file share is a record specific option i.e. it displays file share within a record and is not related to reporting.
