    you can change the format in the Concurrent Program Define...

    Navigation is Responsibility - System Administrator

    Concurrent - Define - Enter the Name of Concurrent Program

    Change the Output format to XML and save it.

    Hey Sandeep,

    I am working on a similar format for a report and if possible can you please give me some guidelines. I have initially created reports using XML Publisher, but for those , the output preview format was PDF. So, if I select the preview format as EXCEL will it give me output in Excel and for this to happen, how do I define the rtf template. I believe the working will be same as for PDF, create a rdf report, get output in XML and apply the template to get the data in Excel or there is something different to this.

    Hi Sunil,

    This option of defining the output format to be only EXCEL does not exist.

    I got the solution for this. Define the report as you do for PDF output. And for Excel output, while submitting the program, in the layout, change the format to Excel and you will get Excel output.
