I'm using InfoMaker v5.0 to develop some reports on WinNT4.0, since the
reports may distribute to customers that do not have IM or PB installed,
can the reports be saved as Word format so that recipents can read the
report easily? Or, do IM 6.0 come with that feature?

Alternatively, I searched the Powersoft/Sybase web site which mentioned
that PSR report can be browsed using Netscape with plug-ins, however,
after I placed the corresponding plug-ins DLL into Netscape plugins
sub-directory I still cannot open the PSR file. The error message says
something like either there is not enough memory or the plug-ins is not
correctly installed. The machine I use is P5 with 32M RAM, and the
Netscape is Communicater version, anyone encountered similar problem?

Best Regards.

The easiest it use the save the reports as html files. That keeps
formatting to some extent. In IM6 it works better than in IM5.
If you have PB, it is easy to build a PSR Viewer. If you don't have PB, I
can send you one if you want to. It requires that the deployment kit is
installed. The nice thing about PSR files is that they allow people to
actually browse, filter, sort the report, just as if they are running it
from Infomaker or an executable built with Infomaker.
I haven't tried browser plug-ins, so I can't help you with that. Stephen
Dupre from Sybase might be able to help you there.

Hi Terry,

I have PB5 and found the PSR Viewer from the PB5 EXAMPLE application,
thanks very much for your advise.

Regards,
Gary
