EG 4.1 - EXPORT HTML REPORT STEP DISAPPEARS

I have a EG 4.1 project that I run for a date range. The reports that come out are in HTML format. I have added an export step to export to a network directory. I have used an Ordered List to step through each query/filter and export step in proper order.

Here is the annoying/frustrating problem: When I run a date range where there is no data and thus no HTML reports, my export steps all disappear!!! I have to recreate all export steps and reassign the network directory. Why does EG do this? I have two different projects and both have exibited this behavior. Is there any way of preventing this from happening?

Thanks,
B

Best I can tell, that's a "feature". It's been noted on this forum before. I hope it's changed in 4.2.

Re: EG 4.1 - EXPORT HTML REPORT STEP DISAPPEARS

I figured it was one of those types of "features"!

Is it possible to create a code block with PROC EXPORT to export my .HMTL files? I was thinking I could just create a code block that wouldn't be tied to anything and won't disappear if a report is missing. And thus I would have to go back through and recreate all the export steps.

If this is possible, can you give me an example?

Thanks.
