When a report with parameter form run in a HTTPS URL  from another form or menu by "Run_Report_Object"  and "Web.Show_Document" procedures, the report cannot be displayed for the user directly. Internet Explorer gives an error.
The problem is that you cannot run reports:

  1. with parameter form on the Web using HTTPS URL.
  2. by "Run_Report_Object"  and "Web.Show_Document" procedures when using HTTPS URL
