The build-in printing functionality in ORDS for APEX has been deprecated. When you have for example ORDS 19.4 you don't have printing anymore.
So are you sure you want to invest time into this?
These days most often APEX Office Print (AOP) is used for printing and exporting in the format you want (PDF, HTML, Word, Excel, ...).
Full disclosure, my company build AOP. From APEX 20.1 onwards you can select APEX Office Print as your print server, instead of the deprecated ORDS implementation.
AOP also works with APEX 18.2 and is unrelated to the ORDS version. I don't want to promote our product, but it is the most integrated solution for APEX currently on the market.
Another alternative would be BI Publisher.
Hope that helps,
I did not thought the printing option wouldn't be there in 20.1. It's good you mentioned that because I was thinking about upgrading to 20.1.
I believe AOP is the best option for reporting and printing. Unfortunately, with one problem - it's not free. Maybe it's not a problem for everyone. But for now I am seeking a free solution.
P.S. there is nothing wrong with promoting a good product even it's yours. Thanks for creating such a product.
