Hi folks
I'd like to make an infomaker (6.0) .exe automatically run a specific report
when it starts up.
I've been mucking around with IM command line options, but no combinations
of those seem to work, and the Help/Infobase information doesn't mention the
possibility, as far as I can see. I'm sure I read something in the
newsgroup ages ago that suggested that this was possible, but damned if I
can find it again, or any reference to the idea.
Anybody out there know how to do it? or if it's not possible, of course.
(TIA)

Hi Ken,
I believe the syntax is something like

im60.exe /p report /o "reportname"

where the \p indicates the painter to open and the \o indicates which object to
open in that painter.

HTH,

On the ftp site there is an imstyle6.pbl that has some features, so that an
IM exe can also be run, passing the report name and action code.
