Getting Junk Characters When Calling Reports Using SRW.RUN_REPORT (Doc ID 2964069.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 01, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version and later
Oracle Forms for OCI - Version and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Linux x86-64
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)


When calling a report from another report using SRW.RUN_REPORT, junk characters are displayed ("Greek" symbol characters) or the alignment is not correct (not centered or word wrap).

When executed directly, the report fonts are aligned properly and correct characters are displayed.

This issue is specific to Linux environment (on Windows font lookup mechanism is simple due to the availability of printer drivers, which have the capability of uploading fonts from the system as needed).
