Last updated on AUGUST 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Bill Presentment Architecture - Version: 11.5.10.2
This problem can occur on any platform.
ARBPIPCP - Invoice Print BPA Child Program
ARBPIPMP - Invoice Print BPA Master Program

Symptoms

While logged in under the Receivables Manager responsibility, 
Run the "Invoice Print BPA Master Program". (ARBPIPMP module: Invoice Print BPA Master Program)

The Invoice Print BPA Child Program selects the default printer specified at lowest level of the
"Printer" profile option, rather than what is specified when the Invoice Print BPA Master Program is launched.

Example 1: The profile option named "Printer" is set to "PrnOption1" at the User level.
After entering all of the report parameters for the "Invoice Print BPA Master Program", but before submitting this request,
select the Options button and change the printer from "PrnOption1" to "PrnOption2".
The "Invoice Print BPA Child Program" still uses "PrnOption1".

Example 2: The profile option named "Printer" is set to "noprint" at the Site level.
After entering all of the report parameters for the "Invoice Print BPA Master Program", but before submitting this request,
select the Options button and change the printer from "noprinter" to "PrnOption2".
The "Invoice Print BPA Child Program" still uses the "noprint" setting.

A workaround is to set the user level profile option named "Printer" to the desired printer before running the program.
