I hope this title is suggestive so many users will come in and try to answer my question .
I have a report developed in Oracle Reports 6 (I know, it's time to move on, but the project is too big to migrate to another version; yet...). The parameter form has the parameter DESTYPE.
If I choose "File", the report is saved in the location I specified in DESNAME, as 'pdf'. When I try to open it, I receive the message "Adobe Reader could not open file because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged, (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasnt correctly encoded) ".
If I choose "Screen", I preview the report, then, from the menu I choose "Generate to FILE... PDF", the file is saved and I can open it.
I mention that I have Adobe Reader 8.
Thank you for reading (and answering)!

What is the path of the location?
The path is on a server. Is the same path as that when I choose 'Generate to file... PDF'. I find the file, but I can not open it.
I've noticed something else. I did not use Report Parameter Form; I did a form who call the report; I choose in the form to save the report in a file and it works! I can open the file.
