    forms 6i call reports

    Munish
      Hi,

      We have oracle forms 6i (6.0.8.8.0) calling reports 6i (client/server model).
      Reports background engine fails to come up and the form just hangs.... not sure what is going on.

      Is there a trace? log? that can be turned on to see what is going on and what is not letting reports background engine to show up.

      If I run reports stand alone, it works fine.

      According to client, antivirus is turned off.


      Thanks

          Hi Munish

          I have an alternate solution.
          just install the reports runtime and oracle net8 products in separate folder
          then just configure the TNS and check


          Hope this helps

            Hi,
            Nope that didnt do the trick.

            I am thinking client must be running some software or something that is blocking the forms to call reports.
            Is there a trace that can be created that will show set to events that is happening when a report is called from the form?

            Appreciate it

            Thanks

              Hi Munish
              This is my last one suggestion.
              copy the reports directory location. For example
              D:\MARSBD\REPORTS
              go to system registry >>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >> SOFTWARE >> ORACLE >> <DEV/REPORT_HOME>
              search for REPORTS60_PATH and add the directory location at the last.

              Now try


              Hope this works...

                I think that you have an ancient version of Forms 6i you might benefit from patching up to a much newer level, there's been 18 or 19 major patch updates since your version.

                  Hi,

                  That did not work either....

                  Thanks for all your efforts.

                  Thanks
