This week I have played a bit with XML-Publisher. The goal was take some reports and try to migrate them to XML-Publisher version. Yesterday I posted a blog about how you can setup a matrix report using the proper tags and references. I must say I was very content that it was possible and although it took me some time. After I accomplished the matrix layout the next question came up. How can I display the input parameters of the report in my report?
It is a very small trick you should understand. first you have to create a declaration and reference to your parameter in your report. Let us asume that my report accepts as input the parameter P_SUBMISSION_ID.
You create a tag in your RTF file with the following syntax:
We can now reference the parameter in our report by the syntax:
This will result in the following layout:

I am new to xml publisher.The article on ‘How to display input parameters is good’.I have a query on this.For my report,there are two input parameters (for dates).I am using FND_STANDARD_DATE value set for dates.Now I have to display these dates in the report.
The problem is that FND_STANDARD_DATE converts the date that user enters into YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS format and the same is printed in the report.I am using to_char( to convert into DD-MON-YYYY format but it’s not working.How can i achieve this?
