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.

    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 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 :
    declare
         pl_id2 ParamList;
         pl_name2 VARCHAR2(30) := 'liste2';      
    v_rep VARCHAR2(100);
         rep_status VARCHAR2(20);
    begin
    pl_id2 := get_parameter_list(pl_name2);
    if (Id_Null(pl_id2) )THEN     
    pl_id2 := Create_Parameter_List(pl_name2);
    IF NOT Id_Null(pl_id2) THEN     
         add_parameter(pl_id2,'mois',TEXT_PARAMETER,:mois);
    END IF;
    end if;
    IF NOT Id_Null(pl_id2) THEN
    if(:mois is not null) then
    v_rep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT('My_report',pl_id2);
    message(v_rep);

    ELSE      
    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).

  • 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...

  • 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.

    Hi
    Can anybody tel me how to Call a jasper report from ORacle Forms 6i.
    Thanks & Regards
    Bango

    Forms 6i client/server? Use the HOST command to call the report. Since a Jasper report is just a call to a url, it will be something like:
    v_url := '<your url to the report>';
    host ('cmd /c start '||v_url);If it's web Forms 6i it even easier. Just use web.show_document(<url>).

    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to call a crystal report from Oracle Forms 10G.
    I have a button on my Form which when clicked calls a Crystal Report which the uaser then wants to save as a PDf file.
    Can someone please send me the code to do this and also the exact steps that are to be followed.
    Thanks

    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.

  • Call Oreacle report from Oracle form

  • Is it possible to call a Crystal Report from Oracle Forms.

    Hi Everybody,
    I got a Dout about Crystal Reports. Is it possible to call Crystal Reports from Oracle Forms.

    Hello,
    That depends are you running Forms via the WEB or client/server. I will assume you are running client/server since you are running crystal reports. The answer is yes. All you will have to do is use the HOST command or the win_api_shell to run the report. Look in the Forms manual for information on the commands and what else you may need.

  • How to print BIP reports from Oracle Forms?

    Hi all,
    I have a question in regards to printing BIP reports from Oracle Forms... We are aiming for a server installation of BIP with integration to Oracle Forms using SSO to handle security. We use Forms built-in web.show_document to render and view the report in PDF/Excel etc... We would like to by pass the viewing and print some of these reports directly to the printer.
    Any idea/suggestions how we can go about this?
    Thanks in advance for your time.
    Yahya

    Yahya,
    via HTTP it's not possible to send a report directly to the printer. You had to go via the Scheduler, which is able to do that. With the WebService API you can call a report with the Scheduler and Execute Immediate.

  • How to invoke crystal reports from Oracle forms 11g R2 along with passing p

    How to invoke crystal reports from Oracle forms 11g R2 along with passing parameter to it.
    how to pass parameters to crystal report, please help.

    how to pass parameters to crystal report, please help.This would entirely depend on crystal reports and you might find informations on crystal reports related communities more likely...I for one have seen crystal reports the last time about 12 years ago. And even back then I simply acknowledged it's existence instead of working with it.
    Maybe crystal reports can be invoked via a URL call which would make it simple as you'd need simply build an URL and show the report using web.show_document. But that's pure speculation. Also you might not be the first with this requirement, so the solution to your problem might be right under your nose and just a little google search away ;)
