R12: Concurrent Program Fails to Send PDF Mail Attachments (Doc ID 1366278.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2023

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 5.6.3 to 5.6.3 [Release 5]
Oracle Concurrent Processing - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


FNDRSRUN Advanced Delivery option is not working as expected.  PDF attachments in emails are being delivered as a .dat attachment. The attached file should have a .pdf extension.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Submit a concurrent request.
2. In Options, make sure the template is PDF
3. In Delivery, set to Email
4. Submit the job
5. Email is delivered, but is not a PDF, it is a DAT file
