XML Publisher, which is also called Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BI Publisher), is a template-based reporting tool that leverages standard technologies for data extraction and display. Business users can build the layout and rules for the report themselves by using common desktop tools.
This document describes how to create a layout template for the Receivables Customer Balance Letter (ARXCOBLX). You create a letter that shows the outstanding balance for a customer. This letter contains a table of all unpaid or partially paid invoices. You will then deploy the template to the Template Manager, run the report, and generate an output.
We will cover:
• Data: we use a predefined Oracle Reports report from the Receivables, Vision Operations (USA) application. This report is used as a data model for our report and generates data in XML format. we use this XML file to create our layout template.
• Layout Templates: You create a layout template for this report by using the BI Publisher Template Builder, an Add-in for Microsoft Word. BI Publisher Template Builder is one of the components that is installed with the BI Publisher Desktop.
• Template Manager: You deploy your layout template by using the Template Manager in E-Business Suite. You can deploy multiple templates for the same report, run the report in E-Business Suite with any one of the layout templates, and then view the output.
• Delivery: You can generate the report output in E-Business Suite with your template and deliver it via multiple delivery channels based on the choice of the end user or the recipient.
