Reports are printed in client side.

Server side HTML generation - ie JSP, servlets, beans, can't control a thing on the client side. Java applet security is specifically set up to prevent what you are trying to do under normal circumstances. You will have to have a client side application - either a stand alone application or a signed applet. Bill
