Hi,

the BI platform includes an eventing service which will check for the configured events - in your case for the file event.

Hi,

Crystal Reports is able to connect to classic InfoSets, Tables, ABAP Functions, ABAP Queries.

In regards to "trigger" you could either use the SDK from the BI Platform or you could use the eventing on the BI platform

Hi Ingo,

I checked the hints. you provided. In BOBJ, there are file event which checks if file arrived or not and based on that.it trigger reports.i didnt find any way by which we can read the file and use the data in file to pass them as a parameter to reports.

Is is possible to print the reports immediately are execution.
