This functionality lets SYSPRO administrators import customized report templates into SYSPRO Reporting Services from any location (i.e. local disk or external hard drive). Previously, this involved a lengthy process of manually copying the relevant report templates in to a specific directory.
Customized report templates are created using the SAP Crystal Reports designer and imported into the SrsReporting table of the system-wide database.
Things you can do in this program include:
Import customized report templates into SYSPRO Reporting Services
Browse for a folder associated with multiple report templates
Browse for a single report template
Select all report templates within a specific folder to import
Deselect all report templates that you've selected to import
Remove a report template from a range of report templates that you want to import
Overwrite report templates that already exist in the SrsReporting table
