The Report Writer allows you to mail reports using mail connectivity applications. Dexterity supports Microsoft’s Mail Application Program Interface (MAPI), which allows you to send mail to other users with a MAPI mailbox. If your workstation has one of these mail systems enabled, you can mail reports from the Screen Output window.
To mail a report to another user, select the Screen option in the Report Destination window when you print a report. The Screen Output window will appear. If a user’s workstation has MAPI enabled, the Send To button drop list will be enabled.
You can mail the report as a text attachment. If you have the PDFWriter printer driver installed (included with Acrobat 5 and earlier), or Acrobat Distiller from Acrobat 6 or later, you can also mail the report as a PDF (Portable Document Format) attachment. Information about Adobe Acrobat is available at www.adobe.com.
Enter the mail address in the dialog box that appears and click OK. The report’s name will appear in the subject line of the mail message. If you chose a text attachment, the report will be sent with a .TXT extension. The user receiving the report can use the application that’s associated with this extension to view the file. If you chose a PDF attachment, the report can be read with Adobe’s Acrobat Reader.
