Chapter 38. Ace Reports and Forms > Running Forms and Reports

Running Forms and Reports

By using the proper commands, a compiled Perform screen (.frm) or Ace report (.arc) can be executed by users. The form displays a data entry screen, whereas a report (obviously) generates a report. Perform screens and Ace reports can be run from the UNIX command line or through the INFORMIX-SQL. Running screens and reports is probably best accomplished by using the command line or shell scripts.

To run a form or report from within INFORMIX-SQL, simply select the "Run" option from the FORMS or REPORTS menu. You see a list of all the forms or reports in your current directory or a directory in your $DBPATH (see upcoming discussion).
