What kind of "report " are we talking about .... the PDF print preview kind or the on CADmep>Reports that live in the drawing (addreport)

The addreport is easy to button map ... i have not attempted the pdf reports

There is no LISP access to individual reports. So unfortunately you can't macro this or call it from a LISP. We have asked in the past for this and "it's on the wish list" somewhere.  :-\

put this behind a button

^C^C(addreport "YOUR REPORT NAME")

I have most of my Schedules and BOM's on buttons then add them to our company ribbon for the detailers

FYI include the quotes
