User Exits in Oracle Reports | Oracle Reports Tutorials

A User Exit is an API, which provides a way to pass control from Reports Builder to a 3GL program that performs some function, and then returns control to Reports Builder.

Using these we can integrate Oracle reports with Oracle apps AOL, and run them as concurrent programs.

Following are the user exits available in Oracle Reports that makes the AOL integration:


  • This is a User Exit which sets your profile option values and allows Oracle AOL user exits to detect that they have been called by oracle repots.
  • It must be included if one is using any ORACLE APPLICATION OBJECT LIBRARY features in his report (such as concurrent processing).
  • FND SRWINIT also allows your report to use the correct organization automatically.
  • Can be used in BEFORE-REPORT Trigger.
  • Syntax is : SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND SRWINIT’);
  • This user exit ensures that all the memory allocated for AOL user exits has been freed up properly.
  • Can be used in AFTER- REPORT Trigger.
  • Syntax is : SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND SRWEXIT’);
  • To format the currency amount dynamically depending upon the precision of the actual currency value, standard precision, users profile values and location (country) of the site.
  • You obtain the currency value from the database into an Oracle Reports column.
  • Define another Oracle Reports column, a formula column of type CHAR, which executes the FORMAT_CURRENCY user exit to format the currency value.
  • A displayed field has this formula column as its source so that the formatted value is automatically copied into the field for display.
  • Syntax:

          CODE=:column containing currency
          DISPLAY_WIDTH=field width for display
          AMOUNT=:source column name
          DISPLAY=:display column name

Call this user exit to create a SQL fragment usable by your report to tailor your SELECT statement that retrieves flexfield values. This fragment allows you to SELECT flexfield values or to create a WHERE, ORDER BY, GROUP BY, or HAVING clause to limit or sort the flexfield values returned by your SELECT statement. You can call this user exit once for each fragment you need for your select statement. You can define all flexfield columns in your report as type CHARACTER even though your table may use NUMBER or DATE or some other datatype.


CODE=”flexfield code”
APPL_SHORT_NAME=”application short name”
OUTPUT=”:output lexical parameter name”
[DISPLAY="{ALL | flexfield qualifier | segment number}"]
[NUM=":structure defining lexical" | MULTINUM="{Y | N}"]
[TABLEALIAS="code combination table alias"]
[OPERATOR="{ = | < | > | <= | >= | != | "||" | BETWEEN | QBE}"]
[OPERAND1=":input parameter or value"]
[OPERAND2=":input parameter or value"]

Call this user exit to populate fields for display. You pass the key flexfields data retrieved by the query into this exit from the formula column. With this exit you display values, descriptions and prompts by passing appropriate token (any one of VALUE, DESCRIPTION, APROMPT or LPROMPT).

CODE=”flexfield code”
APPL_SHORT_NAME=”application short name”
DATA=”:source column name”
[NUM=":structure defining source column/lexical"]
[DISPLAY="{ALL|flexfield qualifier|segment number}"]
[IDISPLAY="{ALL|flexfield qualifier|segment
[VALUE=":output column name"]
[DESCRIPTION=":output column name"]
[APROMPT=":output column name"]
[LPROMPT=":output column name"]
[PADDED_VALUE=":output column name"]
