Thank you for your reply, but if i use the
keyword _SELF in web.show_document, the whole browser window is replaced with the report. That is not what i want. I want the report an one place inside the the form.

Hi,
For such sort of thing you have to do some extra amount of Coding as follows.
Note that you will have to remove extra spaces before each HTML tag as the Browser was giving problems in Posting this message.

First make a static .html file called static_jinit.htm.
Now, build a new .html file called, say, web_n_frames.htm, with:
< HTML>
< HEAD>< TITLE>Frame and web.show_document< /TITLE>< /HEAD>
< FRAMESET COLS = "60%,40% " >
< FRAME SRC="left_frame_form.htm" NAME="frame_left" RESIZE>
< FRAME SRC="right_frame_empty.htm" NAME="frame_right" RESIZE> < /FRAMESET>
< /HTML> )
Make a copy of the original static_jinit.htm and call it left_frame_form.htm and make a new file right_frame_empty.htm with:
< HTML>
< BODY>
< P>I am the right frame!
< /BODY>
< /HTML> )
Now, the original web form will appear in the left frame and the right frame will only contain the sentence "I am the right frame!". The right frame is called "frame_right" (NAME="frame_right"). The PL/SQL code: web.show_document('http://www.oracle.com','frame_right'); will now show the URL in the right frame.
