WS: IE: XML Date Fields Show Value xsi:nil in XML Output (Doc ID 2051675.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 07, 2015

Applies to:

JD Edwards World Technical Foundation - Version A9.2 cume 1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When generating XML with World Writer and the date field is blank in the report/spoolfile, the XML will create output xsi:nil vs. YYYY-DD-MM to reflect a placeholder of blank.

Note: The xsi:nil value only causes issues when building a rtf template through BI Publisher template builder.  A correctly built rtf should read the xml value xsi:nil as a blank value to display in a pdf report. See Workarounds below
