Report Viewer in Configuration Manager 2007 generates a unique URL for each report and dashboard that you run. The URL contains the report ID and the variable names that you used to run the report. You can use the URL to schedule a report or dashboard to run (or to run and export the data to a file) at a specified interval by configuring the Scheduled Tasks feature of the operating system to start Internet Explorer with a URL. Use the following procedure to schedule a dashboard or report to run and export the results to a file.
