Setting Up Standard Letters

Oracle HRMS provides you with two different methods to create standard letters:

Which Method Should You Use?

Use the online method, ADE or OLE, if you want to generate and review your letters immediately.

Alternatively, you can use the concurrent processing method to set up your standard letters. With concurrent processing, you can generate and review your letters without interfering with the other work you perform at your terminal. You can control when a concurrent process runs and schedule long-running processes to run at times when the system is lightly loaded. Another advantage of using concurrent processing is that you do not need Windows 95, Excel or Lotus 123 installed.

See: Concurrent Processing

Using ADE

You can use ADE to generate standard letters and reports. ADE retrieves data and exports it to a data file that is merged with a standard word processed document. The word processed document includes all the merge fields required to merge the data and the standard text for the letter. ADE is fully compatible with Microsoft Word 6.

You can use ADE to generate standard letters for recruitment or enrollment by performing a mail merge from the Request Letter window in your application.

If you want to use ADE to set up your standard letters instead of using the concurrent processing method, refer to the ADE documentation.

See: Application Data Export (ADE).

Using OLE

You can use Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) to generate Microsoft Word letters instead of using ADE, if required.

Attention: In future releases of Oracle HRMS, generating Microsoft Word letters using Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) will be replaced by ADE.
