    Hello, is it possible to deliver LBI reports in a designated format (e.g. Excel, PDF) as an attachment in a Smart Note? The goal of this would be to eliminate a step where certain staff are tasked with running an LBI report, exporting, saving, and emailing to other customers within the organization that do not have LBI security access.

    Just wondering if Smart Notes have this type of functionality?

    I always found that particular scenario difficult to deal with in the LBI system so I created my own .NET reporting routines that integrate with Lawson and utilize Microsoft Outlook contact groups for distribution. It gives me the flexibility to distribute reports in PDF, Excel or HTML format and add/remove recipients for each report from right within Microsoft Outlook without having to touch the report configuration.

    The nature of the reports I distribute this way don't require Lawson security enforcement or bursting, so we're comfortable generating and distributing them outside of the Lawson control system.
