Which Reports version do you use?

Because, there's no "code" ... Report parameters should be correctly set, such as
- DESTYPE = File
- DESFORMAT = PDF

Try to create a drill-down report which would call itself, just with different DES* parameters.

I don't have it; hopefully, someone else will be able to assist.

Meanwhile, I'd suggest you to research "drill down oracle report 6i" (hint: use Google).

hi littlefoot,
As u suggested Report parameters should be correctly set as
- DESTYPE = File
- DESFORMAT = pdf
Its working but can u please tell me how can i change my destination folder.
By default my pdf file saved into c:/orant/bin/report_name , i want to change this path and also after every execution, printer pop up is raised up and if i submitted (accept) that printer command the pdf file generated else nothing happens.

Regards
Viplove Sharma

Use DESNAME parameter; set it to a directory which is supposed to contain output files.

Is it?

Oracle Reports Reference (Release 6i), page 469:
Oracle

Full pathnames are supported for all file references (e.g., desname=/revenues/q1/nwsales).


Oracle Technology Reports forum discussion:
Quote:

If i am giving the absolute path like

DESNAME := 'D:\OraHome_2\reports\Project_One\'||:filename;

it is working fine.
