PB Batch Program
Posted on 2012-03-19
Short background about the application
My application uses Powerbuilder 12 as the frontend and Oracle 11g as backend. We use VC++ for the batch process for A -> A and B -> B transactions.
My PB application has many customized printing functionalities developed within itself like printing reports, invoices etc . So far everything has been done through the application PB screens on demand when "Print" button is clicked by the user.
Now we are planning to enhance the system to print some reports in batch mode.
Is there a way that we can write a Powerbuilder batch program which connects to the Powerbuilder application EXE and trigger some print functions within the application based on various flags in the table level? What would be the best way to do it? Any idea about this would be of great help.
