Creating Reports Using Siebel Report Libraries

To create reports using Siebel Report Libraries (sssiebel.rol file) in Actuate e.Report Designer, perform the following tasks.

The Actuate solution to enable Siebel reporting in Actuate e.Report Designer is based on two files, siebel_report_building.xml and wizard.rod.

These files reside on the system drive. The following locations are examples of where to locate these files:

  • C:\Program Files\siebel\7.x.x\Tools\RPTSRC\siebel_report_building.xml
  • C:\Program Files\siebel\sea7.x.x\Tools\RPTSRC\STANDARD\wizard.rod

Using these files, administrators can use Actuate e.Report Designer without any additional changes.
