    Converting Postscript Standard Reports To PDF

    Sarvesh_n

      Hi All,

       

      We are trying to convert the below two standard reports which have Output Format as "Postscript" to "PDF". When we try to change this as "PDF" in the concurrent program output format and print the report  it throws an error while printing.

       

      Program Name: Print Purchase Orders
      Short Name: POXPPO

      Program Name: Printed Purchase Order Report(Portrait)
      Short Name: POXPRPOP

      Please let me know how to change the output format to PDF so that it prints successfully.

       

      Instance Details:

      EBS 11.5.10.2

      Oracle DB 11.2.0.3.0

      IBM AIX 5.1

       

      Thanks,
      Sarvesh

          What is the error you get?

            Hi Hussein,

            Thank you very much for your reply. We have the Pasta configuration setup correctly but When i change the output format from "Postscript" to "PDF" for the below program, i can view the output in PDF from the browser but when i choose the printer and submit the request it does not print and just gets stuck. Whereas in Postscript format it prints fine.
            Program Name: Printed Purchase Order Report(Portrait)
            Short Name: POXPRPOP
            So, Please let me know how can i generally change the reports with output format as "Postscript" to "PDF" and still get it printed.
            Thanks,
            Sarvesh

              Hi Sarvesh,

               

              Can you please print the concurrent request output file from the OS and see if it works?

               

              Can you print other concurrent requests with PDF output from the application using the same printer with no issues?

               

              Thanks,

              Hussein

                Hi Hussein,

                 

                Thanks for your reply, sorry for the delay in responding as we were trying different options.

                We have Pasta configured and some Standard Invoice Reports whose output format changed from "Postscript" to "PDF" prints fine. We have issue printing the below program in pdf.

                Program Name: Printed Purchase Order Report(Portrait)
                Short Name: POXPRPOP

                 

                But when we try to print the same PDF output file generated from the concurrent program directly from the server using the below command it prints fine.
                >FNDPSTAX -pnBNAD31MFD1131 -fo21656352.out -c1 -Fpasta_pdf_land.cfg
