Would like to click “print” and have each page of a report automatically E-mailed to a specific person? If so, you should take a look at PDF-eXPLODE. Normally I talk about Email “bursting” when I review scheduling tools, but PDF-eXPLODE takes a different approach. It installs as a printer driver and all you have to do is “print” the output to PDF-eXPLODE. PDF-eXPLODE will then burst the report into individualized PDF documents and email each page to the Email address on that page. It only takes a few tweaks to the report to make the bursting work.
And, because PDF-eXPLODE behaves like a printer, the report can be run in Crystal or in any software that can run reports. This makes it easy to use PDF-eXPLODE with enterprise software running embedded reports. Often these reports can’t be run outside of their environment, which means you may not be able to use a desktop scheduler for bursting. But these reports can still be printed and Emailed out through PDF-eXPLODE.
To help promote the newly released PDF-eXPLODE v4, 3000AD SYSTEMS is offering a $100 discount on each desktop license or single-user terminal server license. You can get up to $200 off for 3 or more users in terminal server or CR Server environments. To claim your discount use the promo code “HAMADY”, which is valid through 3/31.
