Does any of you know how to run proc reports in forms 10g through webutil?

The reports are called from forms through host command.
I installed webutil anad changed host to client_host but no effect.

What else tobe done?

Please define 'proc reports'? How would you run one at the command line?

We are coming from a very old telnet character based application.
The reports are terminal based.
In the form they are called as

cmd varchar2(400);
...
 cmd:= '../reports/rep';
 host(cmd);

where ,rep is the pro*c object file.
This file creates a text file that contains data generated by proc file.

Through web,i need to apply the same functionality so that when user generates the report, the text file should be created on the client side.

So itried to configure webutil and used client_host command to call the *.o file.

I was unable to find any full fledged article for the same.

It would be great if you could tell whether this thing is possible or not.

Thanks

If you used the 'client_host' command you would have to have the executible on EVERY PC. I suggest that you run the command on the host machine BUT with the output directed to a file and then move that file to the end-user PC.
