Report Exchange DesignerReport eXchange Designer is one of the module of Oracle Applications Business Suite.It provides generally used Fixed Asset reports that you can modify according to yourneeds using some simple forms. These reports are run as a spawned process and notdesigned in oracle report builder. It is generally recommended to not to design newreports using RX but you can do so following some easy steps.
Steps of creating reports : 1. Creating View. 2. Creating Report 3. Creating Concurrent Program 1. Create a view with relevant data . This view should have its first column as REQUEST_ID.
Enter the data as shown :Application in which youwill run the report Give any name to your report Responsibility from where you will run the report View name you created for report
Select the column you want to dsiplay on report :
Grouping of the data :For grouping first select the column and then press + button (Increase Level) at right side.
Grouping Style :You can group left or group above your data. For that change tab to Page Setup.On this tab you can specify what information you want to display in your report heading.
Summary of data :To get summarize data like (count or summation of particular columns) press columndetails button at bottom.Note : All these setting will be stored in default attribute set of your report as you can seein the figure below. For your report there may be any number of attribute set withdifferent name and with different settings(like grouping on different column, summary ondifferent column, no of columns etc.). At the time of execution you will be asked tospecify which attribute set report you want to run on parameter form.
To copy one attribute set press Copy Attribute Set Button at bottom :
After copying you can modify new attribute set (like grouping, summary etc.)In above screen you are now grouping on Work Order Type instead of Asset Number andremoved 2 columns from the same report i.e. when you run report selecting defaultattribute set these 2 columns will be shown on report but not with sandeep_set.Save all your work . you are done with report creation.
Find report id for this report.Goto Help->Diagnistic->ExamineSelect Reports Block and then find Report_Id field :In above screen report id is 100183 . Note it down you will enter it in your concurrentprogram parameter.
3. Create a concurrent program . Executable : FARXPBSH. You don’t need to create or change the executable always use FARXPBSH. Screen below is just for your referenceThis executable publish seeded reports and reports developed by you.It is a spawned process which is C or Pro*C program.For all the reports use this executable.
Concurrent Program :You can give program name same as your report name.
Program Parameters :Create following 4 compulsory parameters and enter the data as shown in followingscreens :
Enter report id that we got at the time of report creation. --- 100183 in this case.Confirm that display checkbox is unchecked for report_id parameter.
Here we specified DEFAULT as default value for Attribute Set.At run time you can choose any attribute set you defined for this report.
Here we specified TEXT as default value for Output format.At runtime you can choose other options i.e.CSV – Comma Separated ValuesHTML – HTML formatTEXT – Text FormatTAB - Tab Delimited
You can specify more parameters with these compulsory parameters.Suppose you want to specify where clause for some column.For ex : Asset Number should be in given range .For this kind of parameter you need to specify relational operator with parameter namesurrounded by “[“ & “]”.For Ex :[ASSET_NUMBER>=][ASSET_NUMBER<=][ASSET_NUMBER=][ASSET_NUMBER IS LIKE ]
Now you are done with program creation.Assign this program to appropriate request group of your application .Now navigate to correct responsibility (In our example DMC Enterprise AssetManagement) and submit the request
