Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This note is to describe how you can use the XML version of the Payables APList.

What does it do?

This version of the APList dumps all the data for a single (or list) of transactions.   The data is stored in an XML file on the server.  Oracle Support analysts can use this data to diagnose issues and help expedite solutions.

This version of the APList gathers not only the data from the traditional APList, but also includes the queries from the Master GDF diagnostic, and the RDA diagnostic, and much more.  This allows support to request one diagnostic instead of many.

Why is it needed?

The Diagnostic version (HTML based) is limited in size and cannot bring back all the data needed to resolve issues.  By using the XML version, the size limitation is removed.

The XML version offers some significant advantages over the HTML version in the diagnostics:

While the XML version can take a couple of more minutes to run, it reduces the need for other diagnostics.

When should it be used?

This version can be used when requested by Support, or anytime an invoice data diagnostic is requested.
