Using RTF Report Layout with ORDS Creates Unreadable PDF and Print URL Errors
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2016
Applies to:Oracle REST Data Services - Version 2.0 and later
Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 3.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After defining an RTF Report Layout for an APEX report, the report cannot be rendered as a PDF. The Inline display or Download of the printed report cannot be viewed in Adobe. An error is raised.
Also, if the Print URL (Report "Print Attributes") is used to create print link in a page or button, an error is raised when clicking on the link or button.
The same errors are not produced when XSL-FO is used as the basis for the Report Layout.
Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) was selected as the PDF printing solution.
Instance Administration -> Instance Settings -> Report Printing -> Print Server = "Oracle APEX Listener" (now called Oracle REST Data Services / ORDS).
