Apex, BIPublisher and MS PowerPoint

Hello!

I have just installed Oracle BIPublisher and start making reports :-)
Everything works fine, but I found out one problem - I can't generate MS PowerPoint reports from Apex, becouse Report Query Attribute "Output Format" doesn't content any mentions about PowerPoint. But BIPublisher Template Builder can do this!

I see only one way to manage that problem. I have to use option "Derive from item" as a value for Report Query Attribute "Output Format". But what do I have to use as a value for item?

Thank you in advance.
