Calling a Report from a Form

I have uploaded my form to the app server and compiled to Linux. I have copied my RDF file to the reports_path/demo directory. I can run the report via a link from our portal using the URL as follows:
/reports/rwservlet?report=IndRpt.rdf&desformat=pdf&destype=cache&userid=' target="_blank"
That opens the report in a separate window, which is what we want. So far, so good.
I can run the form via a link from our portal as well using the URL as follows:
The config section hides all the form parameters very nicely.
In the portal, I created a Report Server Access portlet, REP_OMHAST2_MIDTIER, and use the following set_report_object calls in my form:
repid := find_report_object('IndRep');
v_rep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT(repid);
rep_status := REPORT_OBJECT_STATUS(v_rep);
rep_status := report_object_status(v_rep);
IF rep_status = 'FINISHED' THEN
/*Display report in the browser*/
substr(v_rep,instr(v_rep,'_',-1)+1)||'?'||'server=rep_omhast2_midtier ','_blank');
All that comes right out of the white paper.
Now here's the weird part, I have never seen this before. When I click my "Show Report" button in my form, the report seems to be running, but then I get a very strange dark grey, square icon superimposed over my mouse pointer. The icon has a small yellow "starburst" pattern with a tiny red exclamation point inside. The report does not appear on screen.
Incidentally, all of this works correctly when I run the same scenario on my workstation using the call to rwserver as: rwserver server=rep_omhast2_midtier. But when we port it to the app server, it does not run. I think it has to be in the way the form calls the report because the report will run as a stand-alone object.
Anything apparent to anyone out there?

Well, it looks like I stumped the band. And with good reason. Sorry for the error. The problem was that the user running the form and the report had a pop-up blocker that was blocking the report. The form and the report ran from another machine. I allowed pop-ups from the report's URL and that enabled the report to appear.
So, here we have another example of how to call a report from a form. Again, I am sorry for any angst this may have caused.

  • URGENT!!! calling crystal reports from oracle forms 10g

    Is it possible to call crystal reports from oracle forms 10g?
    Can someone help to answer how, if there is a solusion, to call crystal reports from oracle forms 10g.
    Please provide codes with details showing step by step.

    try something like this.
    charWinHandle VARCHAR2(50);
    numWinHandle NUMBER;
    BEGIN Set_Application_Property(Cursor_Style,'BUSY');
    charWinHandle := Get_Item_Property('Control.Rep',Window_Handle);

    END;NOTE: Change the report name and path according to your required file name and path in
    the "Crystal_CrystalCtrl.ReportFileName" method call. Also, the connection string shown
    assumes that you will use the current USER and PASSWORD for the Form.
    - To make the above Form generic so that you can run any Crystal report from it, then create
    a parameter for the report name and pass it to the Form using CALL_FORM from any other Form.
    Then just replace the file name with the passed parameter.
    -. Run the Form
    If its correct/helpful please mark it thanks.

  • Calling a report from a form based on procedure

    I created a form based on a procedure.
    It is a entry form where the user is selecting or enters data then on submit I must display the report based on selected data.
    I know I can simply create a report with all bind variable and do the job.
    My question is what is the syntax to call the report from the procedure for the selected parameters values.

    If you want to display other HTML page after successful submission, you need to use
    either go or call method.
    I created a form on SCOTT.EMP and a report on SCOTT.EMP and the report accept a parameter for
    the deptno. Here is my on successfull submission code:
    l_dept number;
    l_url varchar2(2000);
    l_dept := p_session.get_value_as_number('DEFAULT', 'A_DEPTNO', 1);
    l_url := ''| |l_dept;

    Hi Andreas,
    I am trying to call the crystal report from an Oracle Form using a URL. No batch file is being used here.
    I am looking for a peice of code similar to run_product or run_report built in in Oracle which calls an Oracle report from an Oracle Form.
    Also I dont want to display the report on a screen or a window in Oracle Forms. I would like it to run just as we run an Oracle Report from an Oracle Form.
    Is that possible ? If yes please let me know the steps to do this.

  • Calling 10g Report from 6i Form

    A 6i client-server form has a call to a 10g report in the form of a URL.
    The HOST command calls Internet Explorer and with the URL appended. This, however, keeps the form locked until IE is closed.
    Is there a way around this or a better way to call a URL from 6i Forms?
    Thank you.

    Found an example. It seems to work fine.
    I believe this is replaced in Forms 10g by web.show_document though.
    win_api_shell.winexec(vcCommand, WIN_API.SW_SHOWNORMAL, FALSE);

  • How can we call a report from a form.

    how can we call a report from an existing form.

  • Calling a report from a form and outputting to the screen.

    Hi all, I created a report from the Report node in Forms called Monthly_rep. It points to a .rdf file on the server that produces a monthly usage report. When run from Reports Builder both the web and paper version are fine.
    I have a button on a form using the When-Mouse-Click trigger, here is the code:
         report_id     Report_Object;
         report_job_id     VARCHAR2(100);
         report_id:= find_report_object('monthly_rep');
    When run, when the button is clicked, I get some disk activity and then nothing happens. If I change the "SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(report_id,REPORT_DESTYPE" attribute to screen I get a FRM-41214 unable to run report message displayed.
    I am not fussed if the report runs as a web style or paper style, I just want to get it to work ... for now LOL.
    Do the "SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY" settings in the trigger override the settings in the report node ?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    You can use WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT. See
    There you'll find a complete example of RUN_REPORT_OBJECT with WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT.

  • FRM-41214: Unable ro run report while calling a report from a form in 9iDS

    Am in the process of migrating from Developer 6i client/server to Developer 9iDS on Windows 2000.
    I have read through the various postings on this issue & have made changes accordingly. I also referred to the white paper on the Forms/Reports integration.
    As I am trying to do a prototype, am compiling my forms/reports on my local machine & not on the apps. server.
    I installed a report server on my local machine as,
    rwserver -install 9irep
    I have defined this as a NT service and it is up & running & so is my OC4J instance.
    I have defined a reports object in my Form Builder & set Report Server=9irep,
    Execution mode=runtime
    I also removed the /security tag from the <report server>.conf file as suggested in the white paper. Also set the single sign-on to NO for the reports service.
    I have replaced my run_product with the run_report_object built-in as follows.
    report_id      REPORT_OBJECT;
    report_status VARCHAR2(255);
    rep_job_id      VARCHAR2(255);
    report_id := FIND_REPORT_OBJECT('KS'); --Created in form under node "Reports"
    rep_job_id := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT(report_id);
    report_status := REPORT_OBJECT_STATUS(rep_job_id);
    WHILE report_status in ('RUNNING','OPENING_REPORT','ENQUEUED')
    report_status := REPORT_OBJECT_STATUS(rep_job_id);
    message(report_status); pause;
    IF report_status='FINISHED' THEN
    END IF;
    I get an error message "FRM 41214: Unable to run report" right after the call to run_report_object.
    Can someone please tell me where am going wrong with my run_report_object built-in? (I also need help writing my document to point it to my local machine/folders).

    How I have implemented the same and works
    Local OC4J is running.
    I established a reports server "repserver90" as a service.
    I created a report named "C:\TMP\TMP\test_report.rdf"
    I created a form with a Reports object with properties:
    Name: "EMP"
    Filename: "C:\TMP\TMP\test_report.rdf"
    Execution mode "Batch"
    Communication mode "Sychronous"
    Report Destination Type "Cache"
    Report Destination Format "HTML"
    Report Server "repserver90"
    I call the report with the procedure:
    repid REPORT_OBJECT;
    v_rep VARCHAR2(100);
    rep_status VARCHAR2(20);
    repid := find_report_object('EMP');
    SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(repid,REPORT_OTHER,'paramform=no pdeptno='||:dept.deptno);
    v_rep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT(repid);
    rep_status := REPORT_OBJECT_STATUS(v_rep);
    rep_status := report_object_status(v_rep);
    IF rep_status = 'FINISHED' THEN
    /*Display report in the browser*/
    message('Error when running report');
    END IF;

    Hi all,
    How can I supress the Parameter Form of a Report when called from a Form. I am using RUN_PRODUCT built-in to invoke the report.
    Thanks in advance

    Pass a parameter to your report .
    the parameter name is "PARAMFORM" and the value it should have is "NO".
