Need advise to Print a Report
Posted on 2001-06-14
I want to send a report to a user's printer when they click a PRINT button, but I don't know how.
The user will make selections on a Setup Page, then CONTINUE to a Preview page, where the recordset is displayed in columns in a TEXTAREA box.
Then the user will click PRINT, and that's when this theoretical report will pop out of their printer. Only in a different format than they see on the screen (because the report may be several pages long, and the TEXTAREA scrolls)
Can anybody tell me how to get it to do that?
The data is in Access.
Should I design the report in HTML based on the values in Session variables returned using Java?
Then how will I send the report back?.
If this is not an appropriate question for the HTML venue, then I will ask it somewhere else.
