Enhancement Requests and Bugs for Oracle eBusiness Suite

From time to time I create enhancement requests or bugs, commonly on Oracle eBusiness Suite. Additionally I come across enhancement requests that I think deserve more visibility. This page is dedicated to that cause. If you have an Oracle Enhancement Request (ER) or Bug you would like to raise the visibility on, please feel free to comment or contact me.
If you like the looks of one of the Enhancement Requests noted below, log a Service Request (SR) on My Oracle Support (MOS) and ask for your MOS Customer record to be attached to the ER / Bug.

hi gareth, how are you?

i have an issue with xml publisher and Oracle wasn't able to help me out on this one. sorry for commenting in your latest post - i don't know where to post my question actually.

my question is...isn't it when we are attaching or inserting an image, we just provide the full path of that image? have you thought of doing that with a document? I want to insert different documents (order attachments actually) and simply display them in my running output based from an rtf.

my workaround at the moment is to create a subtemplate and define each and every document. so i am hoping maybe you can think of a better way of doing it.

thanks gareth!
