Calling / Running a report in Oracle forms 10g / 11g

Below is the procedure to call a report in Oracle Forms 10g/11g  by passing report file name with full path and report format like 'PDF', 'RTF' etc.

Procedure call_report (preport In Varchar2, pformat In Varchar2)
      pi_id                paramlist;
      repno                Number;
      al_id                alert;
      al_report            Number;
      User                 Varchar2 (25);
      pass                 Varchar2 (25);
      today                Date;
      store_var            Varchar2 (150);
      vc_reportserverjob   Varchar2 (100);
      report_job_id        Varchar2 (100);
      repid                report_object;
      v_rep_status         Varchar2 (100);
      pi_id := Get_parameter_list ('rep_param');

      If Not Id_null (pi_id)
         Destroy_parameter_list (pi_id);
      End If;

      pi_id := Create_parameter_list ('rep_param');

      Add_parameter (pi_id,
      --- report object
      --- the below report object 'cproreport' must be created in Report object navigator.

      repid := Find_report_object ('cproreport');

      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_filename, Rtrim(:parameter.report_path)||preport);
      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_server, :parameter.r_server);
      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_execution_mode, RUNTIME);
      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_comm_mode, SYNCHRONOUS);
      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_destype, cache);
      Set_report_object_property (repid, report_desformat, pformat);

      vc_reportserverjob := Run_report_object (repid, pi_id);
      report_job_id :=
         Substr (vc_reportserverjob,
                 Length (:parameter.r_server) + 2,
                 Length (vc_reportserverjob));
      v_rep_status := Report_object_status (vc_reportserverjob);

      If v_rep_status = 'FINISHED'
         web.show_document (
            || ':'
            || :parameter.port
            || '/reports/rwservlet/getjobid'
            || report_job_id
            || '?server='
            || :parameter.r_server,
         Message ('error when running report' || v_rep_status);
      End If;

  1. Hello,

    It works fine and shows the report when I use paramform = no but when I add param=yes in REPORT_OTHER, the procedure call the report normally and displays the parameter form but on pressing its Submit query the output is as below

    "I am not sending username, password in parameters"

    Error 500--Internal Server Error
     From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
    10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.
