I use crystal/ASP combination. Do not use crystal's web interface, created custom interface with asp and avoided crystal's expensive license fee. -----Original Message----- From: Lopez, Andrew [mailto:alopez@xxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, June 22, 2005 1:54 PM To: midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Reporting Tool > message: 6 > date: Wed, 22 Jun 2005 09:33:19 -0700 > from: Alan Campin <Alan.Campin@xxxxxxx> > subject: Reporting Tool > >.... > > Don't see any reason to generate reports on the AS/400 anymore. > Reporting should just be through Crystal Enterprise. I hate to disagree with someone who just sent some wonderful code for triggers (many thanks, btw), but I guess I still will argue the point. If I can get all the functions provided by Crystal in an AS/400 based-package, why should I move off? I can create one Sequel view and access it from a CL program, from a green screen interface or from a PC client. All three will give me the same results. All three approaches give me the ability to move the output to a text report, an Excel spreadsheet, or a database file. For what it's worth, I had Crystal Reports. I got tired of licensing issues and moved everything onto Sequel. Now that it supports non-DB2 databases, there's no way I'm going back.
