Defects Fixed:

  • 26614891 - In Financial Reporting, the vertical scroll bar is now displayed correctly in the "Respond to Prompts" popups.
  • 26583972 - When importing a Financial Reporting report in Smart View as Fully-Formatted, the values for cells which have replacement text that contains both numeric and non-numeric characters are no longer stripped of the non-numeric characters.
  • 26550929 - In Profitability and Cost Management, navigation improvements within the Calculation screen have produced performance gains.
  • 26540610 - In Financial Reporting Web Studio, if you have a grid with more than 20 columns and you click Save after making a change, you are no longer returned to the far left of the report.

Removal of Support for Financial Reporting Studio Desktop Client:

  • Oracle is committed to providing a simple and intuitive user experience. To achieve this, Financial Reporting Web Studio, available since March 2016, will become the only environment for designing and building reports.
  • Oracle is providing additional time for users to transition from Financial Reporting Desktop Studio to Financial Reporting Web Studio. Tentative plans call for functional parity between Financial Reporting Web Studio and Financial Reporting Desktop Studio in late 2017, at which time, support for the Desktop Studio will transition to the Web Studio and distribution of the Desktop Studio will cease.
  • Oracle recommends that you transition to using Financial Reporting Web Studio at the earliest opportunity. Please send questions and concerns to Oracle using the Provide Feedback option in the service.
