NOTHING ever happens "automatically" on any computer without prerequisite programming.
>(oracle 9i d2k)
above is totally obsoleted & unsupported software
What is the repository that keep track of every desktop shortcut, what it does & when it was created?
Simply put this request show vivid imagination & minimal computer knowledge & competence.

One option is to hardcode date into report's query, for example
select * from dept where trunc(sysdate) - date '2013-11-22' < 5;
so that it'll return results 5 days after that date. This is rather inconvenient because you might change your mind and let users test it for another 10 days so you'd have to modify report and distribute it to all your clients.

Therefore, you might create a database function (which would, basically, do the same - check whether 5 days have passed since some date) and call it from BEFORE REPORT trigger. If the result returned by function is unfortunate for the client, use SRW.PROGRAM_ABORT and terminate report execution. If you change your mind, it is easier to recompile the function (or, if it uses date(s) stored in some table, you don't even have to do that but just update tables' contents).

Thank you very much for detailed explanation of what you did, what code you wrote, the way Oracle responded etc. It is now very easy to debug your code and point you into the right direction.
