Train reservation - where does it show the seat number?

So I made a reservation on obb website, which included seat reservation. While making the reservation, it clearly showed the car and seat numbers, but on the emailed receipt they're nowhere to be seen. The receipt does show that seat reservation was made and the 3 Euro payment for it, but not the actual car and seat numbers. Will that be printed on the ticket or did I do something wrong?

Wasn't the ticket enclosed to the e-mail? Is there a weblink embedded? I am sure that you will find the seating info on your ticket!

The obb website states that "Due to technical reasons (hungarian train personal can't validate home-print tickets) no home-print tickets with destination Hungary will be sold from 12 September 2012 onwards."

I was given a code I can use at a ticket machine in Vienna to print out my ticket. Hopefully the seat number will be there.

Okay - then you will see your seat allocation once you have printed the ticket at the station!

When you click on your email from OBB to "collect ticket" it will give a code to punch in at the ticket machine. it will then print your ticket (fahrschein) and seat reservation (reservierung). The numbers are small but on the middle of the left hand side you see it. It will say zug (train) number, the car (wagon) and the platz (seat number).
