Report Template is a specimen for your future reports.

You create a report from scratch, say make it Master-Detail Report with charts, put your company logo, add some default colors(something like same colors your company uses for its documents, webpages etc.) & then save it as BO Report Template file.

Next time when you are creating new reports, & select use Templates option, your report saved as template will be listed in the box. If you select it, your new report will automatically use all color formats, & table-chart structures, logo....whatever you used in your template report file.

7. Suppose if a cartesian product pop up block appears when running a report. Does it give wrong values? How to solve this issue?

Cartesian product is getting incorrect results.
for instance if we have a cham trap or a fan trap n we din't solve them after checking the integrity also we get duplicate results of the same record ie nothing but cartesian product.

we have customer,orders,loans classes
orders for one product if the product_price is 150$ it will appear twice in the report due to traps bcoz of the cartesian product thats why to solve the cham trap we create context and in order to solve fan trap we create alias table.

3.date order-prompts will appear date wise
it depends on the type we choose in prompt syntax
