Ever wondered how you could format the Oracle Standard reports to meet your requirements. No worries. It is easy. Oracle ERP makes it easy with BI Publisher to extend the output of standard reports to flat excel templates so you can do excel based analysis on ERP data. You could even make your format the default output format or output both standard and the extended format. We will use the SubLedger Account Analysis Report and the Fixed Asset Reserve Ledger report as use cases and do a tutorial on how to format the output. This capability improves productivity and empowers the end user to focus on analyzing the data instead of formatting it.
