Macros & Ajax

We've recently had to revert to using Ajax rather than the IE Plugin and this has meant that a number of Macros I've designed to ease end users abilities to export data from my reports both into Excel and Outlook no longer work.  We don't have NPrinting at the moment so is there any other way to restore this functionality?

Can the inbuilt reporting tool loop through a list box, selecting for example one account at a time and export to excel saving the file as the account name?  Or export a jpg of a report into Outlook?  Thanks for any advice you can give.

Re: Macros & Ajax

Hi dmac1971, macros do not work on Ajax environment.

You can execute your app with an Desktop and batch command to launch your macros.

Why have you had to revert to AJAX?

Re: Macros & Ajax

Thanks for replies guys.  A number of reports on the server will no longer function with a recently installed update.  Unfortunately I don't know any more than that, there was a blog post here acknowledging the problem so the team who admin our server made the decision to remove the IE Plugin.  We don't have NPrint at the moment, maybe its time to lean on a few peeps to see if we can get it for the business.

Manuel,

Thanks for reply, this would mean me having to do the work.  The macros, though rudimentary, did an excellent job of automating extracting data from QV for the end users, and meant I didn't have to be involved.

Hi dmac1971,

Then, there is no way, you need purchase Nprinting.

Kind regards.
