The first part of this course covers basic and advanced functions of PeopleSoft Query. You learn how to design reports that use criteria to filter data or that use predefined online calculations, to create reports with runtime prompts that build flexibility and reusability into your reports and decrease your report design time, and to schedule queries to run while you are away so that your reports always run on time. You also know how to create complex online reports, use advanced techniques to view the exact data that you need, use expressions to perform configurable online calculations, and combine data from unrelated tables or multiple queries to return one set of data. The second part of this course teaches you how to create custom XML Publisher reports in PeopleSoft Enterprise applications. You actively create templates, create report definitions including bursting and translations, run and view reports.
