Maybe I can magically fix this for you :)
You did what I would recommend - use the Templat Builder for Word to generate the XSL-FO. I assume the problem you run into is version compatibility.
The XSL-FO generate from a later version of Template Builder is not backward compatible with XML Publisher. So you will have to upgrade your XML Publisher patch to match the XML Publisher Desktop version you, should be fine.
Alternatively you can downgrade your Template Builder version (if you haven't deployed 4.5. This is probably the safer approach to begin with - and check if it works.
Hope that helps,
Thanks Klaus! See - magic is possible on the internet! :) I wouldn't have thought of that one...
The apps install is a straight 11.5.10 (No CU1 or CU2) so it looks like 4.5 of XML Publisher and of course my desktop thing is 5.5. I can't find a desktop version of 4.5 available on Metalink to download - was it an Oracle Internal-Only release? So it looks like I'll have to upgrade XDO to 5.5 (or more acurately be really nice to the DBA), unless you know where I can get a copy of the desktop client for version 4.5?
Thanks so much for your help!
The first version for which the Template Builder was released is 5.0
Well, I guess I am one of the few who has a backported 4.5 version of the template builder. I did that for testing exactly your case. I just replaced our xdocore.jar file with the 4.5 version and it worked. The core.jar is not easily available. The files are part of the 4.5 patch, but I think it is too much work to get them out.
However, I would strongly recommend to upgrade to a later version of XML Publisher. We made huge improvements, since 4.5 - performance, translation, RTF template capabilities....
I just checked the process of converting an RTF template to FO and uploading it to EBS with 5.6.2 and it still worked. So it seems you can go straight to the latest version.
Hope that helps,
I have a similar scenario and would appreciate your guidance please.
We are running XML Pub version 5.6.1 on the server side and I need to export an RTF template to XSL-FO format. I have Template Builder version 5.6. Build 45.
I need to locate the 5.6.1 version of the xdocore.jar file in order to replace the one that I currently have in the jlib directory for template Builder 5.6 Build 45.
Can you please confirm that the 5.6.1 version of the xdocore.jar file actually exists and where I can find it.
This info would help me greatly.
Thanks you for your continued service to this forum
