    Sending a Crystal report using a Reminder

    afrogers Apprentice

      I am implementing a new purchasing process in 7.2.4 and want to use the values in each purchase request to populate a Crystal report, which will then get sent to the suppliers using a Reminder.  There are a few technical challenges to getting this working but there are two key areas I'm having difficulty with:

       

      1.  Has anybody actually got a reminder to send a Crystal report?  I have got the reminder to try and send it, so that element is working but I keep getting an error, Invalid index. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002000B (DISP_E_BADINDEX))".  Also, if the report does get sent, I would like to go in PDF format, as proprietary Crystal *.rpt format isn't much use to external suppliers.

       

      2. Capturing the values from the process which will dynamically update the Crystal report, would this be done using a Crystal UFL?

       

      Thanks
