There are several printing options when accessing OnDemand through the ARS1 CICS and WEBi tools. These options and instructions are listed below:
When viewing a report from ARS1, you will see a number of PF-Key options at the bottom of your screen. To print a report from ARS1, you will use the F4 key. F4 will bring you to the selection screen below. This screen is called the Host Print screen. From here you have the ability to print the entire report or just a portion of the report. The first time that you use this option you will need to fill in the following fields: Class, Copies, and Destination.
NOTE: At this time the option to print a Banner page for a duplex report does not work correctly for a Host Print. The issue is the Banner page is not treated as its own page and the duplexed report will start printing on the back of the banner page.
If you want the entire report printed and a banner page for a duplex report, use the 'F2-Server Print' option from the Host Print screen as shown below.
You will need to enter in the Class, Copies, and Destination as was explained above for the Host Print. Press <enter> to print your report. F4 will save your profile and F3 will return you back to your report view.
To print while looking at a report in the “Viewer” window, click the print icon (first icon on the ribbon). Since this is a Windows print function, your default windows printer is displayed (similar to other Windows based applications).
WEBi printing can handle pagedef and formdef only if you are printing the entire report.
NOTE: If you want the printer options to stay you must check the Save Print Option box.
Enterprise Report Management (ERP) technology provides the ability to electronically capture, index, burst, distribute and store system-generated reports and documents.
