Where to find the XML files of canned Epicor Reports?


(system) #1

The report XML can usually found on the server share, a path something like this:


\\SERVERNAME\Epicor\mfgsysdata\Reports\USERID


BTW... when you print/preview your report you can specify how long the XML file will be retained in your report folder with the "Archive Period" setting on the report form

Once I can get some sample data by running the report, I can find where it saves the XML files. I'm not sure where it is, except I'm fairly certain it is on the server somewhere.

For the ADO.NET(XML)connection it asks for the file name (which i found) and the "Class Name" what is this class name referring to?

I don’t think I ever filled that in, you probably only need the file name

In Crystal Reports, you connect to ADO, choose browse option to connect to the xml file…

From my experience, that usually pointed to a corrupt or bad RDD...

How old is the file. I’ve found that garbage collection will get parts of my xml data files before I can do anything with them. I run the report and immediately use the xml before it “expires”
