How to use Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager

How to start Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager

To start Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager, use one of the following methods:

Method 1

On the Start menu of your Microsoft CRM server, point to Programs, point to Microsoft CRM, and then click Report Manager.

Method 2
  1. In the Internet Explorer address bar, type:
    http://Your_Microsoft_CRM_Server/ReportManager
    Note If you changed the virtual directory name while the Setup program was running, use the name that you specified rather than ReportManager.
  2. In the APS user name and APS password boxes, type the user name and password that you use to access Crystal Enterprise 9. In Microsoft CRM, the default user name is Administrator with no password.
  3. In the APS server box, type the name of your Microsoft CRM server.
  4. Click Log On.
  5. Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager displays all the reports that are currently installed on your Microsoft CRM server.

How to delete a report

To delete a report, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the report, and then select the box next to the report that you want to delete.
  2. On the Actions menu, click Delete.

How to add a report

To add a report, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the folder where you want to add the report, and then click Add Report.

    Note You can only add reports that are on the Microsoft CRM server because Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager cannot add reports from a network share. To add a report that is located on a network share, you must first copy the report to your Microsoft CRM server.
  2. Type the path and the file name of the report in the Path and file name of the report box, and then click Add Report.

How to rename a report

To rename a report, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the report, and then select the box next to the report that you want to rename.
  2. On the Actions menu, click Rename.
  3. Specify the new name, and then click Rename Report.
Note When you use Microsoft CRM 1.2 Report Manager to rename a report, you change only the name of the report in the Reports area of Microsoft CRM. Each report displays the report title in the Page Header section of the report, and this title is not changed. You can modify the report title in the Page Header section only if you have Crystal Reports 9 installed. To modify this title, open the report in Crystal Reports, click Summary Info on the File menu, and then type the new title in the Report Title box.
