Logging Activity in CR

Former Member
0 Kudos

Is there any straightforward way to get reporting going whenever Crystal Reports is used? We have an automated program that calls CR (Visual Cut) and it does some table->PDF work for us. But we don't have any way of knowing what's going on until we see the "Time Changed" updated on the export file . . .

How do we enable any Crystal Reports activity logging / reporting when it's called from a program in bash/batch/command line?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Eliot,

By default the SDK does not have any logging enabled, the developer who wrote the app needs to add logging code in the app by writing what it's doing to a text file.

What they would need to do is add a trigger when something is done and generate e-mail notification with the info in it and the ability to specify who it is to be mailed to.

You coudl try crpe32 logging, that is the CR core engine but it will only specify writing to a text file, nothing more. By changing the lgging levels you may be able to capture the high level calls, use lower numbers. Performance will be affected though.

Search using Google for crpe logging.
