Hi all,

I am new to Oracle report building, i did some practice following oracle tutorial, however, i feel til now am not coverin' the whole required concepts ! Sad

i have a task to call a report and generate the output as PDF ( during runtime )

so far, i think am familiar in building the report, but what should i do to make the output as PDF ?

Any hint?

Regards,
Meim

you can directly open your report in a PDF format, as long as Developer 10g runs in a Web environment

First, thnks roger for passing to answer my question (f)

Second, could you elaborate plz, do you mean by that , once i call the report ( for example in a form ) it will be display as PDF ?

if yes, is this related to the report layout that i choose at the beginning of building ( paper layout / web layout ) ?

n what about the report extension after i save it? since report builder provides different extension (e.g. JSP, RDF, HTML ) ...


Appreciate your help (f)

RAQ Report is a free java reporting tool. RAQ Report can export report to PDF easily. You can have a try.

juniormy, thanx a lot for you suggestion.

if you mean this tool helps to generate PDF directly from it, then Oracle Report builder can do as well.

but my question was hw to get this during runtime. anyhow, i could do this by specifying the type of the output i want, i tried it once with PDF and other with HTML.

while calling a report from a form we need to specify set of properties like:

REPORT_COMM_MODE = SYNCHRONOUS,

and REPORT_DESFORMAT: HTML, HTMLCSS or PDF


regards,
meim
