Hi everybody!
I have a report server which is using by a remote application server.
In my application, when i call a report, a file is generated on that report server.
What i want is to transfer this file in a folder located on my application server.
That's why i'm looking for a function in oracle forms which can solve my problem.
Thanks

I think you may have to use host command to do that, or why not generating your report output directly on the application server?

The first thing i demand you is to show me how i can transfer the file by using a host command.
The second is how can i generate my output directly to my application server when we know that the report is hosted on the report server which is in my case distant of my application server.
thanks for help

First thing to ask, why you want to transfer your file to your application server? If it`s because you have a form that need to access it, your form can issue the Host command to retrieve the file.

Or you can generate your file from the report server directly to your application server with report parameters like destype=File desformat=PDF desname=\\app_server\folder\aaa.pdf

hope it help

Use 'ftp' or 'rcp'.
