User Name

This user name does not appear anywhere except this window.

Suppress Header Flag

Reports may print with a header page that indicates who requested the report and when. Check the Supress Header Flag check box to define a print style that suppresses printing of this header page.

For example, suppressing the header page when printing checks prevents a check from being overwritten and maintains the orderly sequence of check numbers.


Enter the name of the Oracle Reports (SRW) driver to be called when printing an applications report generated by Oracle Reports. This field is used only by applications reports generated by Oracle Reports.
