Web report printed on a dot matrix printer

Dear all,
how can i design a report that is going to be printed on a dot matrix printer, i want to know these things:
1 - what i will have to change in the report it self.
2 - when i call the report from the form how the code will be.
3 - do i have to print the report on the browser then the user press print from the file menu of the browser.
please advice

1 - what i will have to change in the report it self.Since you will be printing to a dot matrix printer, you essentially need to design a character mode report and set the .prt file for printing purpose. Check in online help for how to make a character mode report.
2 - when i call the report from the form how the code >will be.On the otn site itself, you can find a white paper on reports 9i/forms integration. Please refer to this white paper on the example code.
3 - do i have to print the report on the browser then >the user press print from the file menu of the browser.You do not need to print the report from browser window and can directly tell the report to print the character mode output using your dot matrix printer. The command line you send from Forms will have destype=printer and desformat=<.prt file name>
Thanks
Rohit

  • Web Report Print

    Hi Guys,
    I am trying to implement the Web Report printing using the white paper on "How to .... enhance Web printing". But when I add the HTML link to the code after including the objects in the "ITEM object" tag, I see a blank page. I mean the link does not take me to the help page where I can set the printing parameters as it should happen. Can some one suggest me if I am missing any step here?
    Thanks,

  • BEx Web Reports: Print only Results area??

    Hi gurus,
    I know that it is quite messy printing BEx Web reports with 3.5. ....
    Is there the possibility to print only the results area of a BEx Web report, e.g. without the menus (e.g. Rows, Columns, Free Characteristics)??
    Thanks a lot for your answers,

  • Crystal Report speed problem on dot matrix printers

    We are attempting to print marketing documents (sales orders) to a dot matrix printer using Crystal Reports. All the add-ons for B1 do this using the crystal report viewer which causes crystal to send true type fonts to the printer, making it very slow. We can run the crystal reports in draft print mode outside of B1, and the performance is good. Is there a way to get the same performance in B1 using Crystal?
    All solutions we have found will require us to launch Crystal reports and have the end user enter parameters, using a link off the application menu works this way. But we are looking for a better solution to print to the dot matrix printer faster.
    Thanks

    Hi Peter,
    When you are printing it from b1 make all the font to the regular type ( not like bold are italic) like that then it will be some how faster...

  • Web report - print layout - store of input

    Hi,
    the customer wants to have the grid lines and grey boxes on his printout as see on the screen. We are using internet exporer and when we print there is only the text and and the figures on the paper - no lines that give orientation.
    When the customer enters data in the filter lines she wants to see that data in the filter boxes on the next day again. But how can this data be stored?

    Has nobody any idea how to solve this problems?
    I heard that the print layout can defined with BW3.7 as PDF File. Without this the printout can be defined via Excel (Bex Report)

  • Printing Reports to Dot-Matrix Printer

    I have a customer that is trying to print a report to my company's dot-matrix printer and we keep seeing a "bold/unbold" command (7B, OB) where we should be getting actual bolded text. Is there anyone who has experience printing Oracle reports to a simple dot-matrix text printer? Can you suggest a printer emulation or fix?

    The dflt132,dflt like.. files in c:\orawin95\rdbms\reports\print(may be dir is correct) for the printer and make sure that the file contains the correct escape sequence
    like if bold escape "70",etc..
    if you know Foxpro Special Char values,the samething you can apply in the dflt files.
    Hope this helps.

  • Draft mode report printing

    Pl. help us, urgent....
    We are developing report in Dev 2000 Reports Builder 3.0.4.6.3 on Windows 98 node.
    Our client's requirement is to print the reports on High Speed Dot Matrix Printer at every
    workstation place in Draft 10 Cpi font.
    I have tried setting Font of all layout components with (Draft 10 Cpi, Regular, 10). The result I have got on Wipro LQ 1050+ Dot Matrix printer is -- it is printing in draft mode but the printer head was tremendously twisting especially while printing the digits.
    Later I have tried with setting MODE=character DESTYPE=PREVIEW. The output of preview geting trailed for each line and words. The same result is coming wile printing at this setting.
    What should be right way of designing the layout of the reports and setting the required
    preferences/properties, to achieve that.
    This is very urgent, pl. reply as soon as possible. We are expecting yours
    valuable suggestion.

    Just a first point, Reports 3.0 has been desupported, so you may want to look to upgrade.
    That said, it sounds to me like you just need character mode output. The first thing that I would do would be to run to file with mode=character set, then send this file directly to the printer to see if you get the same results.
    If you do then you should take a look at the documentation on prt files, and your printer manual to make sure that the prt file you're using includes the correct printer escape sequences to set the printer up in the way you require (the right font, etc.) Note that this won't work for bitmapped reports.
    Hope this helps,

  • Crystal reports printing in dot matrix printer

    I'm using Crystal Reports 2008 with Visual Basic.Net 2008. The problem is that when i print the report in a laser printer, everything is good, but when i used dot matrix printer (like Epson LX 300+), reports is printed smaller than original, doesn't matter if i see good in preview. This is an Asp.Net web form.
    How can i fix this problem

    1) Make sure you have the latest CR Service Pack:
    SP4 https://smpdl.sap-ag.de/~sapidp/012002523100008782452011E/cr2008sp4.exe
    SP4 MSI https://smpdl.sap-ag.de/~sapidp/012002523100008782532011E/cr2008sp4_redist.zip
    SP4 MSM https://smpdl.sap-ag.de/~sapidp/012002523100008782522011E/cr2008sp4_mm.zip
    2) Make sure you have the latest updates for the printer driver
    3) Make sure the printer driver is Unicode compliant
    4) Experiment with the "No Printer" option and Dissociate Formatting Page Size and Printer Paper Size option
    5) Compare print from the CR designer to the app print. Do you see the same issue with both?

  • Crystal report printing using epson dot matrix printer (continouos paper)

    Hi there, im tiff from the philippines.
    i have a  question on printing using a crystal report. How do i print using epson continuous printer(dot matrix)? im having a problem printing to that type of printer specially using continuous paper. the first page is correct but unfortunately the succeeding pages are not. its automatically adjusted upon reaching the second page. hope you can help me.
    thanks a lot and looking forward to hear from you soon.

    Check with the printer manufacturer that the matrix printer is Unicode compliant. If it is not, it will  not work with Crystal Reports. If it is, make sure you have the latest printer driver updates.

      Dim Frm1 As New Form1     Dim RV As New CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer     CR.SetDataSource(PrintDatabase1.Tables(0))     RV.DisplayGroupTree = False     RV.DisplayToolbar = True     Frm1.Controls.Add(RV)     Frm1.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized     RV.Dock = DockStyle.Fill     RV.ReportSource = CR     Frm1.Show() When print the Document , the printer print in Portrait Orientation mode . why I donu2019t know second : same situation but I add this code   Code:
    CR.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = PaperOrientation.Landscape When print the Document , the printer print in Portrait Orientation mode . why I donu2019t know thired :   Code:
    CR.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = PaperOrientation.Landscape CR.FormatEngine.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = PaperOrientation.Landscape
    Again When print the Document , the printer print in Portrait Orientation mode . why I donu2019t know
    Now after I changed the defaults setting for the Epson printer to Orintation = Landscape Paper size = Legal And used this code Code: SetDataSource(PrintDatabase1.Tables(0))       CR.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = PaperOrientation.Landscape       CR.PrintOptions.PaperSize = PaperSize.PaperLegal CR.FormatEngine.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = CrystalDecisions.Shared.PaperSize.DefaultPaperSize = PaperSize.DefaultPaperSize.PaperLegal The printer print in Landscape mode but it not printing the data which located in the right side of paper While that I checked the properties of printer from printer button in the crystal report viewer I found the orientation = Portrait I think its mean the program print the document by coding as landscape but printer receive it and print it as portrait because that it is not shown the right side of paper
