    Pentaho delivers an example how you can do that. The report "Burst Sales Report". You can find the xaction in "..biserver-ce\pentaho-solutions\bi-developers\reporting" as BurstSales.xaction

    I found it, but the page show me this error:
    Could not send email because the email server settings have not been configured properly pentaho.

    I changed the email_config.xml with my email'data and edit in the pac the description with the email.

    but anything works.

    thanks for you help.

    It may sound dumb, but you HAVE to restart your Pentaho Bi Server so it loads the new config.
    Also if you're using a GMail account there's a couple of additional properties in the config file.

    Please provide more info so you can get better answers that canhelp you.

    Thanks for you answer,

    I did that and show me the report, but when I write the email for sending the report (Enter E-mail Address since e-mail addresses in EMPLOYEES TABLE are not valid.) the page show me this error:

    [es_161] Error: RuntimeContext.ERROR_0012 - [es_33] ActionDefinition for EmailComponent did not execute successfully (

    Thanks for you help.

    The report works, the problem was that path was bad directed.
    But I have another question: When the xaction send the mail, the page show me a message, I would like to show me a message "successfully sent".
    How can I do this?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi there,

    My BurstSales.xaction is working with my email server settings and the sample pdf files are being sent. Anyway, i would like to understand how this all works and i need to adapt to my scenario, using my reports (prpt files on pentaho). Which files are used to achieve this besides this xaction?

    Thanks for helping.
