Hi

I need to run a report trough report caster and send the DHTML output to a folder on our in house server so I can be picked up by another process to display it on display screen

I am still using version 764

Never did that before and I would really appreciate some help with this

Thank you in advance

Hi YKK

ReportCAster has the ability to distribute via FTP. So that means your in-house server would need to set up a FTP site that you can distribute the output to.

Regards,


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Hi Again

Out IT does not want FTP server, they want to send directly to a shared folder on our network

Is it feasible

Thank you

you can change the fex that reportcaster is running to save the output to a network share using UNC naming conventions.

Do some searches on this site for Filedef Reportcaster.

Several examples of how to accomplish what you want to do.

There has been times that doing a Filedef did not work.

So I had to do it using operating system commands (CMD, DOS, UNIX, WINNT or ! COPY).

the only tricky part with the filedef is you need to make sure that the ID the webfocus service is running with has access to the network share.

Then it is just a filedef.
