REPORTS - automation and remote access

Post by medisys » Wed Feb 21, 2007 11:01 pm

Is there a way, or a software product, that would allow me to go through a series of reports which are memorized like a macro, so they could be run by a single batch file, or remotely with PC Anywhere??

Could you please explain it more in details? What do you call
"reports"? Should the software find or replace in your report files.
Or should it produce report files?

You can run the software from command line

and you can save the found results as HTML/TXT or XML file.

So technically you can create one batch file that will start AFR
several times and AFR can produce the reports.

REPORTS - automation and remote access

I want to run category summary report daily.
Can I use the find and replace method to automate that?

And then use the same technique to automate any type of zout, end of day, or other business report??

thanks,

In fact Advanced Find and Replace is a utility for search and replace inside of files. It cannot be used to produce z-out and end of day reports. In this post you are asking about another product: Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale. Therefore it’s the question for the corresponding to this product forum.
