If yes, which MSRS classes to be used and how?

Re: How to use MSRS(2000) tracing mechanism in custom data extension
Hi,

At present I using Trace() method only.
Is it not possible to use MSRS tracing mechanism which writes the traces to a log file.
It would really help if I can log my traces into the same file. It a must for me as all of my reports are going through custom CDE and if anything goes wrong in the field (for on-demand or scheduled reports), the log file will be of great help.

any help is appreciated.
regards,
Sachin.

Check if report config file has entry for your custom data processing extension and all the dependant assemblies are copied into the <bin> folder
