I have an Oracle 6i report that is invoked by program that sends a command line instruction. Unfortunately, the report prints out as a blank page. Even if I run the report from the command line, it prints out as a blank page, however, if I run the report in Report Builder, and then print it, it prints out fine.

Any ideas?

Windows 2003, Oracle Reports 6i

    Does the report have input parameters ? Are you sure the parameters are being sent correctly when running the report from outside Report Builder ?

    Yes, the report has 2 input parameters, an ID number, and either PRINT or FAX (this just defines the printer name to be set for :DESNAME). If I send it to the FAX printer, it faxes the form correctly, with the expected information and format, however, if I send it to the PRINT printer, it just comes out as blank pages (from the correct printer). In order to get the fax information through correctly to the automated fax software, I have had to set the user's (the assigned user account for running the COM+ app) windows default typeface to Courier (not a true type font), so this can't be changed (the faxing is more important than the printing). I suspect that this might be causing an issue.
