    Run Enterprise report on a file

    Jeff Sweeney

      I wrote a report designed to return information on a single file. ('caus "history" doesn't return enough information)

       

      The user has to start the report generator, drag the file into the report generator's interface, highlight the file, then run the report.

       

      Too many steps. I want to run the report on the file from a right mouse click...or anything simpler.

       

      Anyone have any suggestions on a simpler way to do this?

       

      There doesn't even to be any API to start/run the report generator, so I can't even write a little addin to make it easier!

          I have done something similiar to this in the past. What I did was use excel and embed my query in there. For the value of the filname I linked the query back to the value from another cell. So basically my query is looking for the information of a desired file based on the value (file name)entered in the linked cell. Now instead of having to go through everything with the report generator the user just opens the excel document, types in the file name and gets the information.
