Create a report log table (report_name, user_name) and log every execution of a report in one of Report's triggers (for example, AFTER REPORT trigger). Before running a report, check whether this user has executed it before or not.

However, you will never know whether the very first execution was successful - this user might have started the report, but - what if there was no paper in a printer, he/she accidentally turned of Acrobat Reader (if it was a PDF), etc.

Therefore, perhaps you'd want to explain what is the business requirement and why shouldn't anyone run the same report more than once.

From my point of view, such a task is nonsense and practically impossible.

I Only want to restrict printer property not to get number of copies > 1

Do NOT report messages, unless they are violating forum rules.
Reporting, just to get attention tends to have opposite effect: people ignore your post.

I see; but, it has nothing to do with Oracle - printer driver is to be researched in order to limit number of copies to 1.
