Global Connection Settings

Where do I put in the path for reports in DRM?

The “Global Connection Settings” is on the upper left of the DRM Global Report Defaults window.The “Global Connection Settings” applies to current and new reports, and is accessed at the time those reports are run. The “Crystal PDF Default Path and Filename” is copied to the report definition in DRM at the time of creation, and then is set or administered from the Report Maintenance window.

Anywhere it asks for the PDF path and filename, you put in the entire folder path and filename. For example, you could put \\Server01\Crystal_Reports\MyReportOutput.pdf as a filename. The Report Definition holds the path and filename both. You set this up in Report Maintenance, on the Destination tab.
