JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enables you to attach informational text to records in the database. Users can add text attachments to records from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne interactive applications. A popular use of text attachments is a brief description of items that are purchased and entered into the Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Accounts Payable application. You can design reports to display the text attachments that are attached to records. This enables you to present in a report the same text attachments that are available in the interactive applications
