Yes, my company moved to 10g developer tool set 3 years ago and we still print to pdfs.  You shouldn't have any issue with csv or text files either.

In the 6i report there is an AFTERPFORM trigger where the DESNAME variable was populated with the pathanem and filename.'

Its good news to hear that the 6i report can be converted to 10g and still create the flat file.....
