Padding eText files with blank lines

MikeM asked:
"How to pad an eText template with blank lines so the text file entries end up on the correct position on the stationary?
e.g. There are 25 lines available on the stationary for invoices but only 5 invoices to be paid on this payment - what steps should be taken to insert 20 blank lines after the 5 invoice lines?"

The solution that I use is to add an additional dummy Extend tag for each required blank line to the Payments Disbursement file. These are created under the 'OutboundPayment' parent.

Just a quick post today.

I've had a few emails asking how we test eText templates.

From the Windows Start menu, click on : All Programs, Oracle BI Publisher Desktop, Template Viewer:


Once the Template Viewer is open:

ETEXT Templates for Check Printing - Part 3

In the first 2 blogs in this series, we completed:

Point 1)- Define the fixed position Check file required by the third party software AND
Point 2)- Map our required text file against the standard Oracle Payments Disbursement XML file.

OK - let's get to the meat of the solution.... building the actual ETEXT template.
