Warning Msg: Character Mode report is being opened as a Bit-mapped report

Advertisement

Hi All,
I am opening a Oracle Standard Report in Oracle Apps "INVISMMX", while opening it shows the below warning message:
"Character Mode report is being opened as a Bit-mapped report"
What is the reason for this?
How can I open this report in ASCII mode itself?
Thanks,
Gowri

I believe Oracle Reports by default will open a report as a bit-mapped report. You can change the poperties of the report to make it a character mode report by:
1. If this is a new report, in the Object Navigator, click the Reports node,
then click in the toolbar.
2. Double-click the properties icon next to the report node to display
the Property Palette.
3. Under the report node, set the width and height properties as desired:
for example, 11 (or 15) width x 8.5 height for landscape or 8.5 width x 11
(or 15) height for portrait.
4. Under the Character Mode node:
a. Set Design In Character Units to Yes.
b. Set the report width and report height to the appropriate
character-mode dimensions for the report, such as, 132 (or 180)
width x 66 height for landscape or 102 width x 85 (or 116) height
for portrait.
5. In the Object Navigator, expand the Data Model node, then the System
Parameters node.
6. Double-click the MODE properties icon to display the Property Palette.
7. Under the Parameter node, set the initial value for property to Character.
8. In the Object Navigator, double-click on the Layout Model node icon.
9. In the Layout Model view, choose FormatLayout OptionsRulers to display
the Ruler Settings dialog box.
10. Set Units to Character Cells and Number of Snap Points Per Grid Spacing
to 1. Click OK.
11. Click View in the menu bar and make sure that Snap to Grid is checked.
12. Choose Tools Preferences to display the Preferences dialog box.
13. On the Preferences page, set Horizontal Interfield to 1 and Vertical
Interfield to 0. Click OK.
14. Choose Format Font, and select the font, style, and size that most
closely approximates the character-mode font (such as, Courier,
Regular, 12 point).
