MARS is an application for Windows that saves time and money by making it easy to define single or packages of Access Reports, Queries, Macros & Tasks, schedule and run them automatically, and send them to print, fax, disk, ftp or email in a number of standard formats.
Simply set up a schedule stating how often you would like each report or query to run, whether you'd like the output in Word, Excel, HTML, RTF, Acrobat, text format, and more and who it should be sent to.
Use standard frequencies like Daily, weekly, monthly or set up your own custom frequencies e.g. 4-4-3, every other day, third Monday of the month.
The same report or query can be scheduled to be run multiple times with different parameters, formats, frequencies, and destinations.
Respond to your business needs by setting schedules to run based on events rather than date. With MARS' Event Based Schedules, you can have reports fired off when events occur e.g. database value is present, file is modified, window is present.
Use MARS' unique Dynamic Schedule process to trawl through your database to find the parameter values to use and then generate and deliver a unique report for each value.
Once your schedule has been executed, why stop there? Use MARS' unique Custom Actions to run another program, enter values in a database, modify a file and lots more.
MARS' familiar Explorer-like interface makes it easy to define and schedule report packages.
The context (right-click) menus and full copy-and-paste support make it easy to create complex distribution schedules.
The scheduling service runs as a desktop application, or as an NT service. It will integrate with Exchange Server 5 (SP4) and above (2000 and 2003) or SMTP.
Whether you're spending too much time running and distributing Access reports or query output to line managers, or you need to provide corporate management with tailored reports on a regular schedule, MARS gives you the tools that you need.
