    Unanswered: viewing large reports

    setup: 9iAS, 9i Reports, 9i Forms, W2K

    Can anyone offer any advice on view large reports?

    I am calling reports from within forms. The report that is being generated is 5M+ (it will get larger). IE pegs the machine as it tries to display the output. On my development platform it takes 10 minutes of CPU time to display the report and even then it has format problems. On the target machines (XP) it takes longer (if the report every displays).

    I see on MetaLink that they suggest not using HTMLCSS, but just go with HTML or to some other file. I am going to try that but I am wondering if anyone else has some ideas.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Generate the report as a *PDF file?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
