1200513 - Differences between running VBA macros in Desktop Intelligence and Infoview


In XIr2 you can run a Desktop Intelligence report in 3 ways.  The report can be run from the DeskI client, it can be refreshed through Infoview, or it can be scheduled (through Infoview or the CMC).  It is possible to run VBA macros in all 3 ways of running the reports, but there are some limitations on the macro if it is not run from the DeskI client.

If your macro is not written to work within the limitations that Infoview and the scheduler place on it, the report will run successfully, but the macro will not run.  This means that even if your report and macro work perfectly in the DeskI client, they may not work when you run that report from Infoview or when you schedule the report.
