cViewSERVER

Automatically refresh and deliver your Crystal Reports on schedule using a Windows Service.

Product Overview

The cViewSERVER Crystal Reports scheduler automatically delivers reports to your users on a schedule you select — daily, weekly, or monthly.  Reports can be emailed or saved to disk in a variety of different formats including Excel and PDF.   cViewSERVER retrieves the latest data from your databases to update your reports.  It accepts report parameters so one report can create different results for different users. 

cViewSERVER installs and runs as a Windows Service.  It runs in the background and does not require a user to be logged in to Windows in order to process reports on schedule.  The cViewSERVER service can be set to start automatically whenever Windows starts, so the report schedule will continue to run without manual intervention even if the computer is rebooted.   Running as a service offers important benefits but can make the initial setup of cViewSERVER can be more involved than the cViewMANAGER scheduler for Crystal Reports which runs as a Windows application.

cViewSERVER includes one copy of the cViewREMOTE schedule management client.  cViewREMOTE is installed with cViewSERVER and acts as the user interface to the report schedule.  It allows configuration of data sources, report parameters, and output destinations.  Additional cViewREMOTE licenses may be purchased to allow schedule management from remote PCs.

cViewSERVER may also be used in combination with ReCrystallize Pro to allow even lengthy Crystal Reports to display instantly on the web.
