Hi Liang,
What do you mean, IM can't automatically open the psr files? Are you
trying to double click the file in explorer and have it come up that way, or
are you doing something else?

Sorry! I use MAPI in application to fax the psr file, then the Microsoft Fax
open IM,but IM can't automatically open it.
Furthermore,I am trying to right click the file in explorer to select
print,the IM also can't automatically open it.

thanks you!

It sounds like the psr extension is not registered. In Explorer associate
the .PSR extension to be opened with IM060.EXE.
BTW, you can also use the datawindow plugin to open a psr file. In that
case you need only the npdwe60.dll in the plugin directory of your browser.
You can configure the webserver and/or the browser to open the psr file.

Hi,Terry Dykstra
I use the datawindow plugin to open a psr file, but I can't print the
psr file or fax it in browse.
regards!

Right-click on the psr file will give you the print and save dialog, the
same as in IM.

I am not sure if I understand your question, but you can pass parameters to the
run command in infomaker to open a certain report, for example:
if your report is called data.psr, you can execute the following from the run
command (or any other program that can call the run command)

Run "c:\im6\im60.exe" /P report /O data.psr

of course specifying the path to YOUR im60.exe where I have c:\im6\im60.exe
above.
The /P specifies which painter to open (the report painter in the case) and the
/O specifies the name of the object to open within that painter.

HTH,
Jody LaPosta
