Process Overview for Creating and Implementing XSL Sub Templates

You must follow this process when working with XSL sub templates.

Creating and implementing an XSL sub template consists of the following steps:

  1. Create the XSL file that contains the common components or processing instructions to include in other templates.

    An XSL sub template consists of one or more XSL template definitions. These templates contain rules to apply when a specified node is matched.

  2. Create the calling or "main" layout that includes a command to "import" the sub template to the main template and a command to apply the XSL sub template to the appropriate data element.
  3. Upload the main template to the report definition and create the Sub Template object in the catalog.
