Email and Print an FSG Report on a Networked Printer

Once you have requested an FSG report using “Program – Run Financial Statement Generator”, you can print it on a networked printer (that is set up to print Oracle reports), and view the output on your computer screen.

Objective:
At the end of this lesson, you will be able to view your report on your computer screen, e-mail a report notification automatically and print your department statement at your networked printer.

NOTE: If there is a printer in your department that you would like to print Oracle reports on, call the ITS Help Desk at ext. 5-4357.
