Is there any way of scheduling InfoMaker 6.0 to generate a report (say
at around 5:00am every morning)? If so, how would I accomplish this
task? If not, what are my options or is there any other Sybase
compatible reporting tool that will do this?

Thanks,

Tien-Tien Hsieh

No. You can try using a scheduler like NT's AT command. This will work, as
long as your report doesn't require parameters.
If you have Powerbuilder, you can write a program that will allow you to
pass a report and retrieval arguments as well. I have an example, if you
are interested. We use it together with the NT AT command.

I'll send you an example. It requires that you have PB.
