I would like to have a page printed from a link added to the page footer of a crystal report.

Is that possible in CR?

Mlmcc,

That is correct. I have a table that stores the links with the page that would need to print when I print the document. Is it possible to create a subreport that automatically opens the document on the page or report footer? I am not sure if that is possible though.

If you are willing to show the linked document (assuming it is a single page) inside your Crystal report, you can insert it as a linked OLE object or as a picture with a dynamic expression (using the path you store in your database) for specifying the graphic location.

If this is not possible, then to automate the printing of the report and the referenced files is to use a 3rd-party tool.  One of the Crystal Reports desktop schedulers listed at http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html allows you to do this. It would require that you add a hidden Crystal formula to each report page that should be followed by the referenced document(s).

I ended up creating a subfolder with the file link and name (two separate columns) in a text box. My co-worker showed me how to link the two by using the following; {Document path} + "\" + {doc ID}. I then went to the Hyperlink tab, selected file and then added the above for formula to the Hyperlink Information section.

Thank you for your suggestions!
