Run Report from command prompt (CRXI)

Hi

I've got a report which takes a long time to run, so I'd like to schedule it to run overnight.

Can I run a report via the command line and pass database connection details & report parameters?

Thanks in advance

Hi Martin,

I have found a KBase for (Opening and viewing crystal reports from command prompt )

You can find KBase/Business objects Note from the following link:

[https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/businessobjects-notes]

Cause :Opening and viewing crystal reports from command prompt

Resolution :Yes, we can run crystal reports designer from command prompt.

Steps:

Open Start-run,

Type u201Ccmdu201D. This will open command prompt.

Go to the folder, where crw32.exe file is located. Type :

C:Program FilesBusiness Objects Crystal Reports 11.5 > crw32

This will open the Crystal report designer.

To view a report, type:

C:Program FilesBusiness Objects Crystal Reports 11.5 > crw32 Reportname.rpt

(If it is not in same folder, use the path for the report)

This will open the specific Crystal Report in the designer.

Hope that helps!!

Regards,

Shweta
