greetings,
i am using forms 6i and reports 6i. i want to print a report from forms 6i on the button click idon't want the runtime preview screen. i tried the below coding. it might be very vague but don't know where exactly i had gone wrong.

declare
s number;
begin
s:=dbms_pipe.create_pipe('samp',8192,true);
s:=dbms_pipe.send_message('samp',86400,8192);
DBMS_PIPE.PACK_MESSAGE('r25run userid=dbo/dbodev@kcpdev report=U:Computer ServicessukhoiProj-D2kSupportformMailinglistR_Mailinglist.rdf destype=LPT1');
end;

can u give me where exactly i gone wrong??

is there any other way to take a print directly on the button click from the forms??

i need URGENTLY.

Hi!

Yes you can directly print reports from forms. Use this procedure to set filename, output format or parameters etc.
SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY()
with next function you start to generate the report:
RUN_REPORT_OBJECT()

For getting the whole properties read the help for both the procedure SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY()and for the function RUN_REPORT_OBJECT()!
