Oracle E-Business Suite: Query, Report & Print Output Options

The most common reporting tools used in the Oracle E-Business Suite are:

Oracle Reports: Fixed format reports delivered with the 11i release were built on this tool. This is the most used tool for reporting on Oracle E-Business Suite. Most customizations of available reports are built with this tool. Once customized the output of the report can be delivered in Excel, Word, Acrobat documents or text format.

Oracle Discoverer: is an intuitive tool for creating reports and performing on-line analysis. Discoverer uses the EUL (End User Layer), a metadata definition, which hides the complexity of the database from the end user and provides easy to use wizards for creating reports to suite individual needs. The flexibility of this tool allows the user to create cross tab reports that perform like pivot tables in Excel.

Oracle XML Publisher: is a new Oracle tool for reporting. It enables users to utilize a familiar desktop tool, like MS Word or MS Excel, to create and maintain their own report. At runtime, XML Publisher merges the custom templates with the concurrent request extracts data to generate output in PDF, HTML, RTF and EXCEL.

RXi Report: (Variable reports) – variable format reports delivered with the E-Business 11i. With this tool a user has the ability to print the same report with multiple layouts. The user can also choose which columns he requires on a particular report. This tool is most used on Oracle Financials Applications

FSG Reports: (Financial Statement Generator): is a powerful report building tool for Oracle General Ledger. Some of benefits of using this tool are that a user can generate financial reports and schedule reports to run automatically. FSG Reports are available for the general ledger responsibility only and can be used to see key financial account balances.

Business Intelligence: System (BI): is a set of tools to provide high level information for the managers (decision makers) to run their business such as the profitability of a particular business unit. The information this tool provides helps managers to take the right decision with the daily data that is uploaded on their systems.

Every organization is unique and the standard reports delivered with Oracle E-Business Suite will never meet all the reporting requirements of every organization. Choosing the right reporting tool for effective business decision making is critical to every Oracle E-Business Suite implementation.
