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.

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 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 ;)

  • How to Call a jasper report from Oracle Forms 6i.

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

    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>).

    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.

    You have to have the report server
    a. Installed and configured
    b. Running.
    If you are using rwservlet then you will find the name from the Configuration file referred to in the last link.

  • Calling Report From Oracle Forms

    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?

    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 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 reports from oracle forms 9i

    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 :
         pl_id2 ParamList;
         pl_name2 VARCHAR2(30) := 'liste2';      
    v_rep VARCHAR2(100);
         rep_status VARCHAR2(20);

    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??

    I need call a Oracle report from Oracle Form and found the the following procedure from this forum. I have 2 parameters 'start_date' and 'end_date' passing to called report. The following example just have onle parameter

  • 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.

    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.
