So you've just finished the first cut of your funky
Publisher Check (Cheque) format template, and you feel pretty accomplished:
tables, non-preprinted stationary: Yes
ink on printer loaded and ready to go: Yes
check handling: Yes
Row Enumeration filler in tables via recursive templates: Yes
And then it all goes pear shaped … Doh!

Well, you aren't the first person, or (more...)
Yes, I know everyone else is having a great time at OOW, but some of us are back in the real world still.
I've asked a question on OTN (under EBS General Discussion) Best way to execute / monitor long running custom conc request with slave

Some good news for eBusiness Suite 11i "bippers" to kick off the year of the Ox. In a previous post I provided a temporary solution for the issue where the default value of the Output Format for a BI Publisher based concurrent request was hardcoded to PDF.

I'm pleased to advise that on 9-Jan-2009 Oracle provided Patch 5612820 for Oracle eBusiness Suite Release 11i. This patch has a co-requisite, Patch 7627832 released 11-Dec-2008 that took me a while to track down! (more...)
