The option 'Enable download' in the document properties of the report when checked only allows download of the report in rpt format,

if its unchecked then the report is not allowed to be downloaded to the rpt format , this also shows an error saying

you don't have permissions to download it.

You are correct. Non-administrator users will not be able to download an rpt file from if that checkbox on the report's properties page is unchecked. As a side note - this checkbox also appears on the report upload page if you want to enable download right from the beginning.

Users will still be able to export the report to other formats like PDF or word though. We do not have a way to block that yet.

This checkbox is only available for report documents since the very nature of PDF or office documents involves users downloading them to be able to view them.

Hi, I know this post is old, but I'm looking this option, and I cannot find it. I'm using SAP Crystal Reports I want to be able to block users from exporting rpt files in the export button within SAP Business One. Thanks!
