Business Reporting

Business Reporting Overview

Oracle Lease and Finance Management integrates with the Oracle eBusiness Suite enabling you to use the powerful tools of the eBusiness Suite to generate the reports you need to support your business. In addition to providing you with a flexible report generation engine, standard reports are available from the integrated eBusiness Suite applications that Lease and Finance Management uses to complete common business processes. Together with the standard reports provided by Lease and Finance Management, you have a large suite of out-of-the-box reports that you can use to meet your reporting needs.

Oracle XML Publisher

Oracle XML Publisher is the standard reporting tool used by the eBusiness Suite to define and generate business reports. XML Publisher works by separating the data, report layout and user interface translation aspects of generating a report into the following components:

All of the standard reports available in Lease and Finance Management are generated using XML Publisher. Additionally, many of the reports available from the other products in the eBusiness Suite are also generated using XML Publisher. Since most of the reports available in the eBusiness Suite are generated using XML Publisher, you can modify the standard reports to fit your needs without having to create a new report and all of its components. If you cannot use or modify an existing report, you can also use XML Publisher to generate custom reports.

For information on how to set up XML Publisher in Lease and Finance Management, see Set Up XML Publisher, Oracle Lease and Finance Management Implementation Guide.

For more information on XML Publisher, see the Oracle XML Publisher Administration and Developer’s Guide and the Oracle XML Publisher Report Designer’s Guide.

Oracle eBusiness Suite Reporting

Lease and Finance Management integrates with several modules in the eBusiness Suite to complete many common business processes. For example, any billings generated using Lease and Finance Management are created as invoices, credit memos, or adjustments in Oracle Receivables. The integration of Lease and Finance Management with standard eBusiness Suite modules means you can use many of the standard reports from those products for much of your business and accounting reporting.

To see a list of reports used in Lease and Finance Management, see Appendix B - Concurrent Programs and Reports.

Lease and Finance Management Reports

The standard reports available in Lease and Finance Management are designed to help you generate business information about transactions produced by Lease and Finance Management. The standard reports are divided into the following two types:

Accounting Reports

Lease and Finance Management accounting reports help you view complex accounting information in which part or all of the accounting originates from Lease and Finance Management transactions. The accounting reports also assist you in completing the analysis required to reconcile your periodic accounting closes and allow you to view balances for a contract.

For more information on accounting reports, see the Accounting Area in the List of Concurrent Programs, in Appendix B – Concurrent Programs and Reports.

Business Reports

Business reports provide information about contracts. The reports compile both financial and non-financial information into a single integrated report.

The XML Publisher data and report templates used to generate the reports are flexible and can be modified to meet your specific reporting requirements. The data templates used to compile the XML data file contain large amounts of detailed contract information. Only some of the data generated in the XML file is used in the associated Lease and Finance Management report templates. However, you can use the data templates to generate additional reports from templates that you create using common desktop applications.

Contract Financial Reports

Oracle Lease and Finance Management has two concurrent programs to generate reports using XML for contract-related information. The reports can be generated from the contract level and the contract line level, and consist of financial and non-financial information. Multiple users can generate reports simultaneously.

Contract Financial Reports can be generated for contracts with the following book classifications:
