    Exporting Report File

    rvelez

      Does anyone know a way to email an attachment of the actual report file along with any exports created in Monarch.  This is my scenerio:

       

      A file is created in an  HP3000[/b]  environment with is then FTP'd to the server.  This file is an input file to another sytem.  But I need to take this file and create summary reports in Excel, and need to send this report file as well via email.

       

      Any suggestions?

          RVelez,

           

          Did you try looking into Portable Reports (.prf's)? They can be used to distribute report files along with a layer of information describing the data structure of reports. I hope I understand you correctly here, but if you are looking to email that actual report files, then creating a .prf would be the way to go for me anyways. You also have options here in the .prf creation to include the model, tree, and database, along with compression factors.

            Thanks Darren for you input.

             

            Actually, I needed to email the actual input file (typically a report) because it was really an input file to another system.  It needed to be in a txt format.  Since my last posting, I contacted tech support and explain that I can use the Input Distribution option located on the INPUT tab when in xprj editor.  This did exactly what I needed.

             

            Thanks again.
