RDLC Reports to be generated after stipulated Time

90 New Member
Consider the following scenario. Currently a .Net application is used to generate reports. The end user needs the reports twice in a day.So he runs the application at scheduled time for report generation.
Now the client wants to automate this process such that the application should become a scheduled task at the desired time of the client.That is, the client need not run the application every time he needs. When the IIS starts, the application should initiate itself and generate the reports at scheduled time.
Placing the code in Application_Sta rt event handler of Global.asax will not help here since it needs the application to be run for the purpose of report generation. Do you have any idea where to and how to code so that the application will generate reports once the IIS starts?


Thanks and regards

Consider using a Windows Service to run this task.

Move the report generating code into a Class Library (DLL) that both your ASP.NET application and this Windows Service can use to generate reports. The reports will automatically be generated by the Windows Service, and the ASP.NET application will let them generate the report like they are currently.

Did you consider the Web Service solution I suggested?

If you've disregarded this suggestion, then what have you tried to solve the problem?

What are you thinking of using as a solution?

I am currently using ASP.Net 2003 and will be upgrading to 2005 sometime in the near future. I have been having issues with using Crystal Reports that were included with .Net to handle my reporting needs. I was wondering if anybody has an opinion on how the new reportViewer control works in comparison to Crystal. One of the main problems I have been having with Crystal Reports is that they seem to load very slow no matter how small the...

Here is the scenario, I have an app (VB.NET) and I want to distribute rdlc files to generate reports. I want to use a single form with a reportviewer control to display the report, so I need to have the reports stored in a folder on the local computer and then pass all the connection information dynamically. I am guessing I will need to have a dataset added to the project, but how do I do all this without embedding the reports?
