How to set a different output format as part of the Concurrent request

We are on EBS and we are also using XML Publisher 5.6.2. We have few Excel output reports. The issue we are having is that when we defien these reports as a concurrent program, the options for output always defaults to PDF. The end user has to alter this every time to Excel as part of the options, even though we know, the output is always going to be an excel output.
Is there a way to default other than PDF. If not, is there any enhnacement request to default it from the template.
- Vasu -

thats right that default format is pdf but u can change this ... if u want the out put format as excel go to Oracle xml administrator responsibility -->administrator tab
and change the default format as you required.
otherwise .... if u want to change it while submiting the request .... go to submit request ... u find one options tab there click on it and change the format as well as template ..... or language if u want to change.
also once u submit the request ... u can go to window menu and go for reprint and republish .... there also u can change the format and all.

  • How to set timezone or output format returned by "current-dateTime()"?

    I would like to record a datetime stamp in log message I write at various points in my workflow.  When I build my log message using "concat(current-dateTime(), blah blah blah)" the time is formatted in what we used to call zulu time which appears to correspond to GMT, e.g.:
    2011-02-11T15:35:02Z: Begin processing file 0101-376547-377-109-0.pdf
    Is there a way to get control of how this data and time are formatted other than retrieving each component individually and concatinating the pieces manually?
    Thanks for any suggestions!

    and also one more check you formulas on month and year, select correct source data, destination data  for compoonent..
    from above, to create a date column and convert  date-->year, date--> month and Explore it.

  • How to set a different smtp in and out on the same server

    I got an xserve on 10.5.6 and the ethernet ports are connected to two differents networks. One is on the local network ( and the other on a wan. The lan is on ADSL box that is also the router. I would like to receive my email from the adsl box (it work like this actualy - smtp in) but sent the mails from my user with the wan (smtp out). I did'nt find any setting on the admin server graphic interface and Apple confirms that it is not possible without modifing files with the terminal. (they did'nt give the solution:()
    Is anyone can help me to make this configuration work.
    Thanks in advance.

    Short answer: you can't - at least not directly.
    What you're trying to do breaks the fundamental rules of IP routing - specifically you can only have one default route that's used for all non-local traffic. That route will either point out our ADSL link or your second WAN link. You cannot route by port or protocol.
    Your best bet is to use an SMTP relay where you tell your server to relay all outgoing mail through an intermediate server (rather than directly to the destination domain). Then you can setup a static route to that relay over the second WAN link to override the default route.

    If you have database 10g, look into function REGEXP_REPLACE. Otherwise you can also try this (you might already know).
    SELECT SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001', 1,2)||'-'||SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' ,3,2)||'-'||
    SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' , 5,2)||'-'||SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' , 7,3)||'-'||
    SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' , 10,2)||'-'||SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' , 12,2)||'-'||
    SUBSTR('CHHOCMIPO07020001' , 14,4)
    FROM dual
    If you have to use this at many places, create a function, pass the raw value, manipulate the string and return.

    This table contains a complete history of all concurrent requests.
    When a user submits a report set, this table stores information about
    the reports in the report set and the parameter values for each report.
    This table records arguments passed by the concurrent manager to each program it starts running.
    This table records when requests do not update database tables.
    This table records information about Oracle Applications and operating system processes.
    This table collects runtime performance statistics for concurrent requests.
    This table contains the concurrent program performance statistics generated by the Purge Concurrent Request and/or Manager Data program. The Purge concurrent Request and/or Manager Data program uses the data in FND_CONC_STAT_LIST to compute these

  • To view the concurrent request output in a custom form

    I have a requirement to view the concurrent request output from a custom form.
    I can use the function "fnd_webfile.get_url " in a PL/SQL procedure and get the value for URL for the request output.
    I am not sure how I can call this function from the form directly , ie not sure which library needs to be attached.
    and also how to display the URL which has been obtained.

    I used the below code in my form
    l_url := fnd_webfile.get_url
    file_type =>'request_xml_output' , --fnd_webfile.request_out,
    id => req_id,
    gwyuid => l_gwyuid,
    two_task => l_two_task,
    expire_time => 10 -- minutes, security!.
    when I used fnd_webfile.request_out the form was not compiling and hence I passed the value 'request_xml_output'
    Now no compilation error exists however how do I display the concurrent request in the screen.
    I am not clear here, is there any function I need to use. I checked the FNDRSRUN form and there they have used, 'Y');, I tried using it but no use.

  • How to acquire the concurrent request id in data template?

    Hi all,
    I want to know how to acquire the concurrent request from my report data template. I've created a placeholder for my parameter +<parameter name="p_conc_request_id" dataType = "number" defaultValue="0"></parameter>+ and for nothing ... i've got the 0 value.
    I need the concurrent request id in order to detect the user who launched the report. Is there other way on getting the user ??
    Thank you!
    All the best,
    Edited by: laurentiu on Jul 8, 2009 5:29 PM

    I read your previous post about this solution but i was not able to retrieve it. Here is step by step what i've done:
    - added the parameter to my data template
    - added the parameter to my concurrent program
    - added the parameter in my pl/sql package
    - i've run my concurrent request and the value returned in my xml is 0 for the concurrent request id parameter
    I don't know where i'am getting wrong ?!?
    Thank you!
