BI Publisher for PeopleSoft

A very belated update from Collaborate

Back in April I attended Collaborate. I was very impressed by 2 presentations on Publisher for PeopleSoft given by some folks from Northrop Grumman. I had hoped to post these shortly after Collaborate but one thing or another seemed keep getting in the way. So, better late than never, I expect our PeopleSoft community finds these helpful.

Lori Haussermann gave a very good presentation "XML Publisher Tips for PeopleTools" that covers the basics:

- Installing the BI Publisher Template Builder Add-in for Word
- Creating a PSQuery data source
- Generating sample XML data
- Creating an RTF template
- Creating a PDF template
- Creating the report definition
- Uploading the template
- Running the report

Her presentation also includes a list of new features in 8.50

Randy Groncki presented "

Creating XML Publisher Documents with PeopleCode
" and
White Paper
. This covers how to use PeopleCode and other tools within the Application Designer to create and deliver XML Publisher reports within the PeopleSoft application. Specifically:

- Different techniques to generate the source data file for the report
- How to use the delivered XML Publisher Application Packages to generate the report and combine multiple reports into a single result file if needed.
- How to present the report to the user including the Report Repository, popup window and emailing the report.

Advanced XML Pub with PeopleCode.zip
includes the PeopleCode and sample files created by Randy and described in the white paper.


A Big Thanks to Lori and Randy for presenting these topics and allowing us to share them with the wider community.

It’s hard to find knowledgeable bloggers on this topic, but you seem like you know what you are talking about! Thanks.
