Last updated on JULY 28, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using CUPS for PDF printing.  When running a PDF report directly to printer, the report is getting cut off on top.

For example, destype=printer desformat=pdf


Works
If you send the report to FILE and then print it, it works. (destype=file desformat=pdf)

If you send the report directly to printer with HTML format, it works. (destype=printer desformat=html)

This worked fine in Reports 10g.

Does Not Work
Sending directly to printer via PDF output using Reports 11g and CUPS.

"Non Oracle" PDF file outside of reports also has same results.

Changes

 Upgraded from Reports 10g to 11g and using CUPS.
