To render Oracle Essbase date values correctly when encountered in a Financial Reporting, report, select
a date value format from the Date Value Format drop-down. This option supports Essbase data values
which return a date value. You can specify how you want to format such a value. A cell within a grid can
return a date value (which in Essbase internally is stored as a numeric value). When the cell returns that
value Financial Reporting needs to show it as a date (in mm/dd/yyyy format. This preference specifies
what format to use.
From the Financial Reporting Studio tab, use the drop-down menus to activate default Financial
Reporting Studio settings.

Setting Annotation Printing Preferences
Financial Reporting preferences lets you specify how or whether annotations should print.
Details — When selected, a system-defined footnote is created. The Use Footnote Details
area is enabled where print options such as the annotation elements to print and the number
of annotation replies to print can be selected. Generic formatting is applied and system-
defined size and fonts are used.
Text Object — When selected, the footnote function in the report's text object is used to
print annotations. Footnote functions are created by the report designer. This option
provides more flexibility in terms of formatting and printing of annotations. For example,
the footnote function may specify to print only grid annotations with different size, font,
and color to be applied to the heading and content.
None — When selected, annotations will not be printed in the PDF as footnotes.
To set annotation printing preferences:
Select File, then Preferences, and then Financial Reporting.
