Unable To Print Characters Like Eacute (É) in Postscript Output for DESTPYE=Printer (Doc ID 1473286.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.2.1.0 [Release 11g]
Generic UNIX

Symptoms

When running an 11g Report with DESTYPE=printer (an eps file will be generated and sent to printer), characters like Eacute (É) are missing (or scrambled).

Report is called with an URL like the following :

http://servername:port/reports/rwservlet?report=test_print_report.rdf&DESTYPE=printer&DESNAME=Pintername&userid=scott/tiger@database

When running a Report with destype=PDF these characters are printed fine.
