How To Create A Custom Forms or Reports Batch Windows Script in 11g (Doc ID 1222297.1)

Last updated on MAY 29, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version to [Release 11g]
Generic Windows


The goal of this note is to be able to create on Windows a batch custom script to call several reports or even several Forms Migration Assistants.

The following is a Reports example:
If you create a Windows batch script calling rwrun.bat command to run several reports it will only execute the first one and will terminate the custom batch script leaving the other rwrun.bat report requests not executed.
This is expected behavior on windows as control from child batch script is not returned to the parent script. This is seen in 11G version of Report because here rwrun.bat is the basic script executed out of INSTANCE_HOME to call reports.bat and rwrun.exe
On Unix there is no problem creating a shell script to call several times. It will execute all the calls in the shell script.
