Oracle Reports and Applications Printing

When you run an Oracle Applications report, Oracle Reports generates and formats the output.

Each report has a print style that defines its dimensions, that is, the number of columns and rows it contains.

Once a report is completed, an Oracle Applications printer driver attaches formatting instructions for the destination printer.

Text, document, and printer formatting instructions for printing a file generated by Oracle Reports are summarized in the table below.
