Running Reports Using Command-Line Arguments

To run a report using command-line arguments, you must know the ID of the report. By using command-line arguments, you have various options for opening the RoleTailored client and pages and reports in different modes. For example, you can specify a specific server or specific language, or you can create hyperlinks to specific reports. For more information, see Starting the Windows Client at the Command Prompt and Creating and Running Hyperlinks.

When you run a report using command-line arguments, you can filter the data in the report by adding a filter string to the command. The filter string has the following format:

&filter=<table>.<field>:<value>

To specify the table, you use the Name value of the data item.

To specify the field, use the field name. If the field name contains special characters, then you must enclose it in quotation marks by using the URI escape sequence %22.

The colon operator separates the two parts of the filter string.

To specify the value, you can either use a single value or a comparison operator and a value. The following are valid comparison operators:

  • > (greater than)

  • >= (greater than or equal to)

  • < (less than)

  • <= (less than or equal to)

  • <> (not equal to)

The wildcard character * is permitted in the value.

You can specify multiple filter strings by concatenating them. For example, the following command filters on cities that begin with M and names that begin with A.

DynamicsNAV:////runreport?report=101&filter=Customer.City:G*&filter=Customer.Name:C*

To run a report at the command prompt

  1. At the command prompt, change to the RoleTailored client directory with the following cd command:

    cd "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\RoleTailored Client"

  2. Type the following command:

    Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe DynamicsNAV:////runreport?report=<ReportID>[&filter=<table>.<field>:<value>]

    Replace <ReportID> with the report ID that you want to run. If you want to filter the data, then replace <table>, <field>, and <value> with the appropriate values.

To run a report from the Run window

  1. In Windows, on the taskbar, choose Start and then choose Run.

  2. In the Run window, enter the following command: DynamicsNAV:////runreport?report=<ReportID>[&filter=<table>.<field>:<value>]

    Replace <ReportID> with the report ID that you want to run. If you want to filter the data, then replace <table>, <field>, and <value> with the appropriate values.

  3. Choose OK to run the report.

To run a report from a web browser window

  1. Open a web browser window.

  2. In the address bar, enter the following command: DynamicsNAV:////runreport?report=<ReportID>[&filter=<table>.<field>:<value>]

    Replace <ReportID> with the report ID that you want to run. If you want to filter the data, then replace <table>, <field>, and <value> with the appropriate values.
