If you included more fields than this in the actual view; remember “Power User” can copy the report and add columns to it as long as they are present in the view.

It should also be noted that I have not aliased the attributes with the report column name this is because attributes can have different meanings/uses across organizations and the column name can be set in the report format section, covered later in this document.

Create the view in the relevant environment for import into EiS eXpress Reports

View Import in eis:

One you have created the view it must be imported into EiS before it can be used.
Responsibility:     XXEIS eXpress Developer
Path:           Setup => Data Sources => Import Object

Select the apps schema, all bespoke views should be created in the apps schema.
Select the object (view) that you want to import into EiS

Select the module (Oracle Application) you want to import the view into.

Note: If you are using the view for a Purchasing and General Ledger report you will need to import it into both Modules.
If the module is not in your list see Module Security in the “Developer Setup” section.
Note: The module should be the most likely Oracle Application that the user would expect to find the report in i.e. a Purchase Order report would most likely be access by Purchasing Users and Purchasing would be the logical EiS module to put it in.

Make sure you click the “Import Objects” button before navigating away from this screen.

  2. The procedure for GEPCO’s new connection is very easy. It just requires the customer to be truthful and honest. To get the process started, one needs to have access to a good internet connection and a smartphone or a laptop. To get to the GEPCO application form:

    GEPCO New Connection
    Open the browser.
    Write “GEPCO application form.”
    Open the application form.
    Fill it out and then send it to GEPCO via email. You can also pay the fee online.
