Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting is a powerful tool for designing and presenting analytic data graphically. You can design traditional financial report formats such as cash management reports, profit and loss statements, and balance sheets. You can also design nontraditional formats for financial or analytic data that include text and graphics.

Financial Reporting uses an object-oriented graphical report layout. Whether you have little or advanced experience using an object-oriented graphical program, it is easy to design reports. You use report objects, such as text boxes, grids, images, and charts, to design your reports. You can use the same report objects in multiple reports.
