Last week I made my first steps with XML-Publisher 5.6 Desktop and I am very pleased with the simplicity you can create a report in such a short time. When you follow these instructions you can see it yourself. After you have installed the XML-Publisher 5.6 Desktop you open Microsoft Word and you are ready to create the report.
You can start with the header of the report and place for example a logo in the header. In the left corner you see a XML-Publisher menu.
