Printing out multiple copies of report behaves differently in Reports 11g. When running any report using DESTYPE=FILE and COPIES=x, the output file generated in 11g is different than 10g. In Reports 10g, you can see the report is printed twice inside the output file if COPIES=2 or three times if COPIES=3, and so on. The same report in Reports 11g does not create multiple copies inside the output file, regardless of COPIES parameter value.

For Example:


myoutput_11g.pdf has 1 page (one copy of report output)
myoutput_10g.pdf has 2 pages (two copies of same report in pdf file)


Upgraded to Reports 11g.
