REPORT_FORMATS displays metadata about the different output formats supported for reports. Some reports are generated in XML only, in which case no data will appear in this view. When reports support HTML or Text formats (for example, the SQL Performance Analyzer reports), metadata about the format will appear in this view. XML reports can be translated to another format with the DBMS_REPORT.FORMAT_REPORT procedure.
