    hi all -

    i am trying to display a work file from a lawson job through the portal, but i can not do it using webrpt.exe, since the file path does not exist in the USERRPT table in GEN.  i receive an error that says "invalid file. must be in USERRPT".

    is there a (systematic) way that i can add the path name for a work file to the USERRPT table?  will that alone solve the issue?

      Have you looked into the "loadrptsp" utility?=

        Are you trying to view it from the Print Manager ? If so, I think the workfile needs to created as file media PRINTER in workdef

          i'm not trying to view the report from the print manager, but it would be ok if the file is viewable there. i would like to be able to view the file (CSV file) using a URL in portal.

          thanks for your help!
