Calling report from a form with user input parameters

Hello,
I am new to Oracle reports. I have an application coded in 6i. I am currently running the application in Oracle Forms Builder 9i. There are also few reports which are called from the forms. Since the application was developed in 6i, the report was called using Run_Product. The forms pass a set of user parameters to the report using the parameter list pl_id. The syntax used was Run_Product(REPORTS, 'D:\Report\sales.rdf', SYNCHRONOUS, RUNTIME,FILESYSTEM, pl_id, NULL);
I learnt that the Run_product doesnt work in 9i and we need to use run_report_object. I have changed the code to use run_report_object and using web.show_document () i am able to run the report from the form. There are 2 parameters that need to be passed from forms to reports. The parameters are from_date and to_date which the user will be prompted to enter on running the form. In the report, the initial values for these parametes are defined. So, the report runs fine for the initial value always. But when i try to change the user inputs for the form_date and to_date, the report output doesnt seem to take the new values, instead the old report with the initial values(defined in the report) runs again.
Can someone give me the code to pass the user defined parameters to the report from the forms? I have defined a report object in the forms node as REPTEST and defined a parameter list pl_id and added form_date and to_date to pl_id and used the following coding:
vrepid := FIND_REPORT_OBJECT ('REPTEST');
vrep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT (vrepid,pl_id);
But this doesnt work.
Also, Should the parameters defined in the forms and reports have the same name?

Thanks for the quick response Denis.
I had referred to the document link before and tried using the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC procedure and ENCODE functions as given in the doc and added the following SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY in the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC :
SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(report_id,REPORT_OTHER,' FROM_DATE='||:BLK_INPUT.FROM_DATE||' TO_DATE='||:BLK_INPUT.TO_DATE||' paramform=no');
But this also dint work. Please help me understand what difference does setting paramform=no OR paramform=yes make?
In the report, i have defined the user parameters as FROM_DATE and TO_DATE respectively so that they match the form datablock BLK_INPUT items FROM_DATE and TO_DATE.
My WHEN_BUTTON_PRESSED trigger is as below:
DECLARE
report_id report_object;
vrep VARCHAR2 (100);
v_show_document VARCHAR2 (2000) := '/reports/rwservlet?';
v_connect VARCHAR2 (30) := '&userid=scott/[email protected]';
v_report_server VARCHAR2 (30) := 'repserver90';
BEGIN
report_id:= find_report_object('REPTEST');
-- Call the generic PL/SQL procedure to run the Reports
RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC( report_id,'repserver90','PDF',CACHE,'D:\Report\sales.rdf','paramform=no','/reports/rwservlet');
END;
... and the SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY code in the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC procedure is as:
PROCEDURE RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC(
report_id REPORT_OBJECT,

WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT(reports_servlet||'/getjobid'||vjob_id||'?server='||report_server_name,' _blank');
ELSE
--handle errors
null;
END IF;
In the code - " hidden_action := hidden_action ||'&'|| v_report_other; " in the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC procedure above, how do i make sure that the v_report_other variable reflects the user input parameters FROM_DATE and TO_DATE ??? v_report_other is initialised as v_report_other VARCHAR2(4000) :=''; in the procedure. Will ensuring that the v_report_other contains the user input parameters FROM_DATE and TO_DATE ensure that my report will run fine for the input parameters?
Thanks in advance.

  • Calling reports from oracle forms 9i

    Hi
    I succeded to call reports from oracle forms but for I have a problem for only one report so I can't call it. this a part of the code I'm using :

    message('Error when running report');
    END IF;
    end;
    the problem I've remarqued is that the function message(v_rep) is always returning the value :'repserver_0'.
    so when I execute the previous code I'm getting the 2 messages : 'repserver_0' and 'Error when running report'.
    Rq: the report my_report is running very well in report builder.
    does someone see where is the problem so can help me??
    thanx.

    Hi,
    This usually happens when the report fails on the report server. To obtain details on why a particular report has failed, use the showjobs page :
    http://server.domain:PORT/reports/rwservlet/showjobs?server=repserver
    and check the detailed error occured.
    This is logged as Bug:3017948. It is marked to be fixed in version 9.0.4 (Reports 10g) and also has one-off patches for version 9.0.2.3 on Windows platforms. If you need further assistance about patches, please raise a Service Request (SR) with Support via Metalink (http://metalink.oracle.com).

    Hi,
    You have to have the report server
    a. Installed and configured
    b. Running.
    See
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/bi.1111/b32121/pbr_strt001.htm
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/bi.1111/b32121/pbr_verify004.htm
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/bi.1111/b32121/pbr_conf003.htm#i1007341
    If you are using rwservlet then you will find the name from the Configuration file referred to in the last link.
    Cheers,

  • Calling Report From Oracle Forms

    Hi
    I am calling this one report from oracle forms, I am using global temporary table to run that report. I am first inserting data into the temporary table through oracle form and then i am calling report in that form to view the data in that temporary table. The problem is, we can not view the data of an other session if we are using temporary table. When i call report from that form a new session get created due to which i can not see the data. Is there any method of calling report from oracle form that a same session is used to run the report?
    Thanks.

    As you mention Forms and Reports do not share the database session. I had the same problem and resolved it using record groups and DATA_PARAMETER to transfer data from Forms to Reports. You could also read the Note 110495.1 on Metalink to find useful information regarding this issue.

  • Calling Report from a Form

    Hi All,

    Olan,
    Your code looks good, and it should work.
    Maybe you should check your report to make sure it is under oralce report path, user-defined parameters in the report are same name, type,lengh as in the form parameters, and correct system parameters.
    good luck.

  • Calling Report from a Form on the same page

    Hi,
    We have a SEARCH Form and when user inputs search criteria, then we want to call a report on the same page, just below the search button. We tried many things but the report does not show up on the same page, it navigates to next page.
    Please help..
    Thanks
    Kumar.

    I am trying to do a similar thing... I have created a form application component and a Report application component which is called from the search form. This works fine.
    I expose the search form as a component and put it on a portal page. I do the same with the report.
    When I call the page and enter the search params in the form and call the report, the report appears in a separate non-portal window. I would like the report in the same portal page to be run in-line with the new parameters.
    Has anyone done this before?

  • Little help for calling report from a form

    hi,
    I AM NOT ABLE TO CALL THE REPORT WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE. PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I AM DOING WRONG! THANKS A LOT!!
    It is Oracle 9i and Reports 6i.
    -> I have a form with only one BUTTON.
    -> I have a REPORT with only one USER PARAMETER 'P_1' which is a number.
    -> I have only one query INSIDE the report. It is "SELECT * FROM EMP WHERE EMPNO = :P_1'
    -> I added the report to form in the OBJECT NAVAVIGATOR of FORM and the NAME OF REPORT is 'REOPRT4'
    here is the code on the form:
    ================================
    When_button_pressed
    DECLARE
    vid report_object;
    vname varchar2(100);
    BEGIN
    vid := find_report_object('Report4');

    ==================================
    -> the FORM and REPORT are in "c:\helloworld" directory.
    -> the error I am getting is 'internal pl/sql error'
    -> I WANT THE USER TO ENTER THE RUNTIME PARAMETER FOR THE REPORT AT RUNTIME, so no need to worry about supplying the parameter through code!!!
    Thank You very much. I appreciate your kind help!!

    I think that you have to add some code, see page 15 in this:

  • Issue calling report from a Form(11.1.2).

    Hi,

    Thnx,
    Sona.

    Hello,
    Usually in development installation report server gets installed by default unless you uncheck it.
    You can find the report server name by:
    a)looking into rwservlet.properties file
    or
    b)as entry in Start > All Programs > Oracle Classic instance - asinst_1 > Reports Services > Start Report Server rep_wls_reports_<hostname>_<InstanceName>
    or
    c)http://<yourhostname>:7001/reports/rwservlet/getserverinfo
    In order to run the report from froms you need:
    -to implement the solution i described in a previous update
    or
    -use a harcoded value in the form
    SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(rep_Report,REPORT_SERVER,'your_report_server name');
    Since you are in 11gR2 development mode you cannote use EM or OPMN to get the status of the report server as Roberto Suggested.
    For your reference also check:
    Oracle Forms and Reports 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) Development Installation FAQ (Doc ID 1373210.1)

  • Calling report from a form/report

    Hello all,
    My Apex version 3.2.1
    I have created an application on some tables. Each table has a report and form page. Now everything in these pages is working fine(inserting, updating, deleting records).
    I have a situation here, where after I insert a new record in to a table from the form page, here I have to show a report page based on a SQL query which queries the records from another table and the current table passing the parameters. Parameters should be the values that I enter during inserting a record.
    Can I do this from form or report? If yes, how?
    Please help me...

    I think you could create an unconditional branch after submit that would go to the report page that calls the said report.
    Process flow:
    insert row in TABLE_A
    click update - adds row into table
    submits page
    processes validations, computations, etc
    branches to report page
    report page pulls data from TABLE_A (new row is inserted)
    You could have a separate branch on each form to accomplish this.
    Hope that helps

  • Urgent: Calling Reports from Oracle Forms 10g (10.1.2.0.2) fails

    Problem displaying a report from within Oracle 10g forms.
    After a lot of work, we are able to access and actually display a report directly from Internet explorer and view the report from the report server as well.
    The successful url was:
    http://york.vrc.virginia.gov:7778/reports/rwservlet
    ?report=/u01/app/oracle/produ ct/vrcmidtier/reports/vrc/pmw41051.rdf
    &userid=vrcpr/[email protected]&destype=cache&desformat=HTML
    The form displays correctly back to the screen
    When executing from within the form, however, the report runs but does not display back to the screen.
    Forms Steps so far:
    created a report object called pmw41050
    static parameters are:
    file name: /u01/app/oracle/product/vrcmidtier/reports/vrc/pmw41051.rdfination format
    execution mode: batch
    communication mode: synchronous
    destination name; null
    destination format: HTML
    reportserver:: vrc_york_midtier
    Built a when button pressed trigger as follows:
    declare
    l_report_file varchar2(200);
    l_report_id REPORT_OBJECT;
    l_report_status varchar2(200);
    begin
    -- capture the report
    l_report_file := 'pmw41051';
    l_report_id := find_report_object(l_report_file);
    -- set the parameters for this output
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_EXECUTION_MODE, BATCH);
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_COMM_MODE, SYNCHRONOUS);
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_DESTYPE, CACHE);
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_DESFORMAT, 'PDF');
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_SERVER, 'rep_york_vrcmidtier');
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_OTHER, 'PARAMFORM=NO');
    set_report_object_property(l_report_id, REPORT_DESNAME, 'DESNAME');
    -- and run the report
    l_report_status := run_report_object(l_report_id);
    -- monitor progress
    while l_report_status in ('RUNNING', 'OPENING_REPORT', 'ENQUEUED') loop
    l_report_status := report_object_status(l_report_status);
    end loop;
    message('back from the report'); -- test message for return
    end;
    The report executes without error (as indicated by the message on the last line) but does NOT display back to the screen
    checking the rwservlet/showjobs verifies the report completed and the reportcan be displayed from there.
    So, bottom line: how to make a 10g form call report and display it on the screen?

    Thanks MIke for your feedback...
    Will this surfice?

  • Invalid ID calling report from oracle forms 10 G

    Hi, I have a problem during calling a report object 10g from a FORM, the source code is below the message, an the error message is can't not find PLAN_FUZZY (my report module name)...... WHY ???
    DECLARE
         repid REPORT_OBJECT;
         v_rep VARCHAR2(100);
         Rep_status VARCHAR2(20);
    BEGIN
         repid := FIND_REPORT_OBJECT('PLAN_FUZZY');
         V_rep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT(repid);
    END;

    hey,
    May i know have u attached the report to your form???
    i think the best way is using RUN_OBJECT method
    Run_Product(REPORTS, 'report_path', SYNCHRONOUS, RUNTIME,
    FILESYSTEM, NULL, NULL);
    if your report is at reportxx folder then you can just write report file name.
    Hope it will help you.

  • Calling Reports from Web Forms

    Hi all,
    I have Forms and Reports services 10g running on Linux RHEL3, and it's all right so far, with only one application.
    Now I have to use another application, which has some forms and reports with same name as the first one. At this point I cannot use FORMS90_PATH and REPORTS_PATH anymore.
    I solved the problem about forms and icons (simply changing configuration files), and I found a solution for Reports, but this one obliges me to modify all forms calling reports. Of course I don't like it so much, and I'm wondering if someone has a solution without changing anything in the applications, as for forms and icons.
    Thanks in advance
    Paul

    Hi Martin,
    I'm afraid there was a little misunderstanding : I tried your solution, and it works fine for forms (but for forms I already had a solution, workingDirectory in the project section of formsweb.cfg).
    It doesn't work for reports : it seems that the only way to specify reports location is in reports.sh, but to make applications independent I should use different reports servers for different applications, not acceptable.
    Do you know a way to obtain the same result for reports (as for forms) without changing applications ?
    BTW, the solution should work on Windows OS too.
    Thanks again.

  • How to run multiple reports From One Form with 1 report object?

    Hi ALL!
    i want to run multiple reports (in 10g technology) from 1 Form having only 1 report object.
    i.e

    Rpt_new should run
    Else
    Rpt_old should run
    END IF;
    How can i do this?
    thanks

    Rana,
    I found this in the Forms online Help. You could easily found it yourself. Don't be afraid of pressing CTRL-H:
