Automatic Report Printing Configuration

image\Important.gif Important: You can only use the automatic report printing capability with Microsoft Access and SQL Server databases.

You can use OLE automation from CIMPLICITY scripts to trigger the running and printing of reports from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets that you have configured to produce reports

The CIMPLICITY script may be:

Triggered by Database Logger Maintenance Events, or

Triggered by any event in the Event Manager, or

Attached to an object a user can trigger on a CimView screen.

The steps to implement automatic report printing include:

Step 1

Configure the CIMPLICITY Service to access a printer.

Step 2

Create a script to generate the report and print it.

Step 3

Create an event to trigger the script.
