Kisco Information Systems (Mt. Kisco, N.Y.), an AS/400 software development and consulting firm, has made available Release 4 of WebReport/400, an e-Business software product for the IBM AS/400. WebReport/400 provides functions for electronically processing AS/400 reports.

With this new release, WebReport/400 is now available as two different products. WebReport/400 PDF has been added to support producing AS/400 reports in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. Release 4 allows users to send reports to a virtually unlimited number of recipients. This is accomplished via e-mail address stacking within each destination address field. The new release also includes a built-in address book that let's users specify destination e-mail addresses using simple abbreviation names. For HTML conversion, Release 4 of WebReport/400 adds the option to convert reports into Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.

WebReport/400 will process any character-based report from the AS/400 print spool, and users can execute the functions manually or set them up to run automatically. The software provides commands to permit calls to WebReport/400 features from user application programs as well. WebReport/400 sends reports as e-mail attachments, and users can send e-mail distribution to a single user or a virtually unlimited number of users concurrently. WebReport/400 works with standard e-mail server functions included in OS/400.
