Eric Debeij, Sr. Product Consultant for Progress Netherlands, has constructed a ABL wrapper around the enormous wealth of possibilities of calls from Progress to Crystal. It offers a set of ABL applications which implement a very easy to use interface which takes care of all the hard stuff for you. It implements:

  • Client-side generation, viewing, exporting and printing.

  • AppServer-side generation, printing, exporting and report layout storage.

  • Business Objects Enterprise generation, printing, mailing, exporting, ftp, and result storage.

  • Both ODBC and XML connectivity: XML means that a temp table or ProDataSet is being exported to disk, and Crystal is then using that particular file to retrieve data.
