Is there a way to schedule reports to run at selected times?

Thanks in advance

Not with Infomaker. You can use PB to write a program that will receive as
parameters a report name and optional arguments. This you can then put
into a scheduler on NT. If you're interested in source code, I have
developed such a program.
The other thing you could try is using a program that can emulate
keystrokes. Then you could call an IM executable and send it the proper
key strokes to run it.
