    Unanswered: Bulk conversion of Reports?

    Hi. I have 10g installed on a W2K3 server - I am currently converting our old 6i reports to run on the new server, using the Oracle-supplied Reports Converter program, but this only allows me to convert one report at a time.

    Am I missing something here? Surely there must be a way to convert more than one at a time? (Or have I discovered an untapped niche in the marketplace?)

    Is this a GUI or some command tool you can use (I have never converted reports myself; have only touched 6i reports so far) ?

    I believe you already figured out where I am heading with this question..

    The supplied tool is a GUI tool, accessed as a menu item on the desktop (it was installed in amongst the other Forms Service stuff), that only allows for one report at a time to be converted.

    I have never touched Forms & Reports before, other than in a DBA role, & am converting the reports as instructed by our Software Supplier. They told me how to do it & they know of no other way, & I have no experience of this - hence my original question.

    It just seems to be a time-consuming way to do this...

    Cool


    Converting reports is NOT a DBA task -- leave it to the developers/programmers!

    Otherwise look into winbatch to automate GUI tasks.

    Well, funny you should say that, because that's exactly what I've done - I've gone back to the Project team & told them to sort it out between themselves & the software providers

    (BTW, thanks for the link - it might come in handy for whoever converts the reports )
