Oracle Apps 11i Tutorials : Oracle Flex fields
This chapter provides you with a conceptual overview of flexfields. The chapter covers the following topics The general features of flexfields, Flexfields terminology , The benefits of flexfields and Descriptive Flexfields.

Overview of Flexfields
Oracle flexfields is one of the most important parts of Oracle Applications. It is because of the flexfields that the Oracle Applications is so generic in nature and can be used to suit any industry or organization. A flexfield, as the name suggests, is a flexible data field that your organization can customize to your business needs without programming. A flexfield is a field made up of sub–fields, or segments. While flexfields do not require programming, they do allow you to perform significant customizations to the Oracle Applications, so they do require enough explanation for you to get the most out of the features they provide. Oracle Applications uses two types of flexfields, key flexfields and descriptive flexfields. A key flexfield is a field you can customize to enter multi–segment values such as part numbers, account numbers, and so on. A descriptive flexfield is a field you customize to enter additional information for which your Oracle Applications product has not already provided a field.

Basic Business Needs
Oracle Applications flexfields let you satisfy the following business needs:
     

Have ―intelligent fields‖—fields comprised of one or more segments, where each segment has both a value and a meaning. Rely upon your application to validate the values or the combination of values that you enter in intelligent fields. Have the structure of an intelligent field change depending on data in your application. Capture additional information if you so choose. Customize data fields to your meet your business needs without programming. Query intelligent fields for very specific information.

Key Flexfields
key flexfield is a field made up of segments, where each segment has both a value and a meaning. You can think of a key flexfield as an ―intelligent‖ field that your business can use to store information represented as ―codes.‖ Most organizations use ‖codes‖ made up of meaningful segments to identify general ledger

accounts, part numbers, and other business entities. Each segment of the code can represent a characteristic of the entity. For example, consider an account number for a bank. A complete bank number may consists of various segments like the country code, area code, city code, branch code, account type, account number etc.

Bank Number : [01].[002].[08].[S].[124467]

Country Code City Code Branch Code Account Type(Savings/Current) Account #

The number of segments a bank requires to identify an account number uniquely is a requirement specific to the bank. Another bank might not require a country code if its presence is there only in one country. Key flexfields are used to identify such information uniquely. A key flexfield is flexible enough to let you use any code scheme you want to describe an entity. When your organization initially installs an Oracle Applications product, your organization’s implementation team customizes all the key flexfields in that product to use meaningful code segments to describe each key flexfield entity. Your organization decides for each key flexfield, how many segments an entity has, what each segment means, what values each segment can have, and what each segment value means. Your organization can also define rules that govern what combination of segment values are valid (cross–validation rules), or define dependencies among the segments. The result is that your organization can use the codes it needs rather than change its codes to meet someone else’s requirements. The Accounting Flexfield in your Oracle Purchasing application is an example of a key flexfield that identifies a unique chart of accounts. One organization may choose to customize the Accounting Flexfield to have three segments called Company, Department, and Account, while another organization may choose to customize the flexfield to have five segments called Company, Cost Center, Account, Sub–Account, and Product. A key flexfield appears on your form as a normal text field with an appropriate prompt. In figure 1 below, the Account field is actually the Accounting Key Flexfield.

Figure 1. Key Flexfield in a form A window pops-up when you navigate to the key flexfield as shown in figure 2 and it would require you to enter the various segments defined for the key flexfield.

Figure 2. Key Flexfield Pop-up

Key Flexfields in Oracle Applications
The Oracle Applications products provide many key flexfields as integral parts of the products. Here is a table listing all the key flexfields in Oracle Applications, ordered by the application that ‖owns‖ the key flexfield. Note that other applications may also use a particular flexfield

Interface tables involved in Item COnversion: MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS_INTERFACE MTL_ITEM_CATEGORIES_INTERFACE MTL_ERRORS_INTERFACE Base Tables: MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS MTL_ITEM_CATEGORIES Standard Import Program name: Item Import (INCOIN) This program does most of the standard validations. including file attachments via email.What are the interface tables in item conversion? 2. With Release 12.what are the validations and what is the standard program in item conv. or ll we create manually . in AP? whether system ll automatically cleared.. Buyers can now choose to enable them only in specific inventory organizations. Thus.? Ans. buyers can negotiate a blanket agreement to fulfill requisition demand for a subset of inventory organizations and enable the agreement for autosourcing only in those inventory organizations.. buyers can communicate all necessary attachments to suppliers.. 5) Release 12.What are the base tables in item conversion? 3.only text attachments were communicated to suppliers.0.0 allows finer control of how blanket agreements are enabled for automatic document sourcing. Once we receive the material what is the entry in Oracle Apps APOnce we receive the material what is the entry . 9. 8. Oracle Apps process of item conversion and interface tables Hi! Any one can you send me the details and process of item conversion? 1.

We register a custom table in the custom schema.if any of the fields in sql loader script. What are the manadatory user exits in Oracle Apps Reports? Ans.user_exit( 'FND SRWEXIT' ) 12. Reason being when stored procedures or functions are written to perform DMLs on the custom table it is done from APPS schema.register_table procedure Ans. empname is Jain.. 11. second parameter should depend on first parameter when i am running my report in apps i have to pass two parameters second parameter should be depend on first parameter. ' in the data of csv filehey. SRW.. how to handle ' . Invoice 10. eg..Ans.anisha while using csv file in a sql loader Ans.USER_EXIT( 'FND SRWINIT') srw. See there are 2 mandatory User exits in Oracle application Reports.. ' in Jain. Then give all permissions to APPS schema. and in first parameter it consist two list of values . why we register a table in apps schema? why we register a table in apps schema by using ad_dd. 14.anisha then how can we handle this ' . P_CONC_REQUEST_ID is one of the mandatory parameter. 13. One needs to enter the value with double quotes like "Jain Anisha" to all the values so the comma can be stored in the columns. What are the manadatory parameters in Oracle Apps Reports? Ans.

in process when i pass approve in first parameter then second parameter should be enable and when i pass in process second parameter should be disabled.A flexfiled is a field made up of segments. How this can be possible . Flex FieldsWhat are Flex fields in Oracle Apps Technical? What is different between Flex Fields and User Parameter. So we can't create tables in APPS schema if we want to make use of them in our custom code. So what ever paremeter we specified first according to that we have to specifie second parameter so thats why second parameter should depend on first parameter. two types of flexfield 1. FND Table: Who is the owner of FND_TABLES and Why we shouldn't create table in APPS Schema? Ans. approve 2. and needs to be kept secure. APPS schema contains the package code for all the E-Biz products. SOB (set of books) Level what are the Modules we will Maintain at SOB (set of books) Level? Ans.What r types of Flex Fields? Ans. what is visual attribute Ans. Set of Book is used in GL module alone 17. Flexfield is a field on which capture varying length of data. Visual attributes are the font color and pattern properties that you set for form and menu objects that appear in your application's interface. 18. Key flexfield(KFF) 2.Descriptive flexfield(DFF) . second parameter should depend on first parameter because we have to specifie the parameters according to the required range. i would appreciate if u people suggest correct answer. 15. Ans. APPLSYS is the owner of FND tables.each segment has a name & set of valid values. 16.ex:1.

The difference between the indepedent and translatable independent value set is that in Trans inde val set u can change the value (Translate the value) while setting the values of this type. What is an Extension in Oracle Applications and What are the steps to implement Extensions? Ans . (But it is available actually) Steps to implement extensions are 1. If any Oracle Apps. 4. For example if you like to see the customer wise invoice no. for example if you want to extend some functionality in GL module then go for a custom module XXGL with out customizing the GL module itself. developer document for more information) 20. 3. 2.i hope you got my point.19. Try to solve the customer requirement with out any extensions if possible. What is the difference between independent valueset and translatable independent value set Ans. module does not cover or does not have functionality to satisfy a customer requirement then an extension is carried out. An extension is a custom development which satisfies a business need which is not available in oracle apps.but in Independent value set whatever value u give automatically the translated value will be the same. 21.. register all the forms reports in the concerned modules. What is the table column link between PO and AP ? Ans. (You can refer Oracle Apps. standard forms then you can develop a new form to satisfy this wont allow you to cahnge. If the extension is larger then go for a complete custom module. If the Iinvoice Distribution is matched to a Purchase Order then ap_invoice_distributions_all.PO_DISTRIBUTION_ID is the link to po_distributions_all table .the advantage is like you want user to see the value ICICI HDFC HSBC(for example) where as you are actually passing values like 001 002 003 etc. Create new tables forms and other database objects as per requirements. and amount in AR which is not present in Apps.

Record Jounal entries in the General Ledger and Report to the Financial Managers using reporting tools such as hyperion.fmb a standard look and feel but also make it easier to develop forms with consistent and standard functionality. It contains some special libraries and triggers that render the application using the template form some standard characteristics. 4. 24. How do you configure the system to send notifications to the userid instead of email Ans. This form is the starting point of all development involving forms. Below modules come under R2R cycle 1) General Ledger and below could be part of R2R cycle as well. What is R2R Cycle in Apps? Ans. a requision is raised 2. 2) Financial Consolidation Hub 3) Enterprise Planning and Budgeting. p2p cycle (procure to pay cycle) there r certain steps involved in p2p cycle 1. Hence the template form comes along with many attachments predefined program units and defined visual attributes as well as examples that not only give the forms that are developed using the template. what is the interface error table for order management Ans.22. R2R stands for Record 2 Report i. 25.e.then the rfq is send to the list of suppiers.then p. the quotation comes in and the best quotation is selected 5. Explian about p 2 p cycle Ans.o is generated against that quotation 6. NO ANSWER AVAILABLE 26. oe_interface_errors_all 23. What will happen if we dont get template.fmb when developing a form? Ans. rfq i.then the product is been supplied by the supplier .e request for quotation is made 3.

NO ANSWER AVAILABLE 27. when we customize an existing workflow and when we develop a new workflow? Ans. then recieving reciepts r done. You can click in the . After you have saved your segment qualifier values the values for your segment qualifiers appear in the Qualifiers field in the main window. Any custom development should be done at level 100 or above 30.then the invoice is been made 8. What access levels should be used. What is a segment qualifier and how is it set for the segments of a KFF ? Ans.7. Segment qualifiers contain information about a value rather than the segment that uses the value. 29. and RETCODE : ERRCODE. the actual setup steps for the total flow of the PA Ans. Common values passed by procedures in variable (ERRBUFF and RETCODE) are: ERRBUFF : SQLERRM. Cost allocation is a flex field in payroll 28. later all the transaction r done in general ledger in the new books of accounts 26. Explain about functional flow of the project accounting. 9. Existing Workflows are generally protected at level 20 so you have to level 20 to customize existing workflow process. What is cost allocation in HRMS? Ans. What are the common values passed by a procedure in varialbles ERRBUF. RETCODE? Ans.

Qualifiers field to bring up the Segment Qualifiers window and see the qualifiers. cursor c2(v_variable number) is select b from dummy2 where a v_variable I hope it is clear. The Allow Budgeting Allow Posting and Account Type fields are segment qualifiers for the Accounting Flexfield. Where do you use parameterized cursor in oracle apps? Explain with real-time example? Ans. 31. Parameterized Cursors are frequently used when picking the data from master -detail tables . If the invoice approval matching is set to the 2-way matching then the PO will close as soon as it approved 33. . Ans. The information setup in the Purchasing Options form is not defaulting on to my purchase order form? give me the possible reasons. Eg:-For the Accounting Flexfield.(Generally in interfaces) Or the same table with header as well as line information cursor c1 is select a from dummy1.. 32.. Why is my Purchase Order closing before a receipt is processed? Ans. 34. What is the purpose of CV10 document? Ans. CV010 documents contain Data Conversion Requirements and Strategy information.

How to call one concurrent program from another concurrent program? Ans. What is the difference between sales order and invoice? Ans. We can define concurrent program with application developer responsibility also. 36. What is the difference between parameter passing by reference and passing by value. 37. Invoice is defined as bill for any purchase. Go to concurrent program define window and see the output style if its text means character mode or it's in PDF means bitmap. Maximum 100 parameters for PLSQL procedure executable concurrent programs. when we call an API first of all it will check the validations for the data(validations u can see in the API) that u are inserted through API if the validations are successful the n it will insert data into the base tables. Sales order is list of material that a customer is buying from a comapny having useful information as such order no customer information. API is nothing but application program interface.35.submit_request api 38.How to create concurrent program with out system administrator responsibility from front end. 39. We can all another conc prog from one prog using fnd_request. How many max parameters are allowed in concurrent program? Ans. 36. 1. . How do you find the output of a concurrent program is in character mode or in bitmap mode? Ans. IN parameter and IN OUT Parameter are the parameters can be passed by reference or Valur whereas OUT parameters are passed by value.? 2. What is an API & what is the sequence of events that happens after calling API ? Ans. Ans.

list all interface programs for all modules? Why we are creating interface programs even there are inbuilt interface programs? Ans.Make the payment against invoice in AP(Acount Payables).AP. What are the standard programs for Oracle GL. Procure . 41. What is the difference between standard and open interfaces? Ans.. No it is not mandatory to use SRW Exits or User Exits for reports or forms in Apps the main intention of using User Exits is when we want to do the computation or calculations or perform some functions apart from oracle say suppose we have a DLL coded in VB or VC then we need to use the .(May i know the functionality) Ans.Journal Import AP. If so why. What is the function of TOKEN in concurrent program window? Ans. Procure and Pay2.40. Pay .PR(Purchase Requisation) > approval PR > PO(Purchase Order) > Approval PO > generated PO goes to approved Supplier > get the item into the INV (Inventory). What is procure-to-pay cycle in oracle applications? Ans.4. Is it mandatory to use the user exist in Apps. Standard and Open interfaces are same. Hi all Procure 2 Pay -> 1. PO.PO modules open interfaces? Ans. This is a cycle starts with Procure and ends with Pay 3. Interfaces can be classified as standard or open and custom interface. that is why we combine with token . 43. Report bulider parameters are not in sequence.Import Standard purchase Orders GL. Is there any inbuilt interface programs in the Oracle financials? If the answer is yes . 42. Token is nothing but a interface between report builder parameters and concurrent program parameter.Pyables invoice Import 45. 44.

here we call the srw exit for FND FLEXSQL and FND FLEXIDVAL both these functions are AOL functions are are specifically used to pass the control out of the current report go to the chart of accounts of the Buisiness group level and find the relevant entires against the account code of present in the chart of accounts present in the SOB of that organisation unit. What is meant by ERP? Ans. What are the ways of creating multi-org views apart from using adaadmin utility Ans.register_column to register columns of that table we can also use ad_dd. one of the best functionality used is while preparing reports based on account codes or reports where we print chart of accounts along with individual entries of accounts. 49. How to register a table or view or synonym from backend? Ans. How to run a report in a multi org environment for all orgs at one stroke Typically.user exits. the main intention is to pass the control while still keeping the session alive to outside third party tool other than or to any other oracle functions. 48. What if the report at a single run has to generate data for all offices.delete_table to unregister tables. 47. to run for a single org. in the before report trigger. ERP Stands for Enterprise Resource Planning . 46. . other wise we do have normal reports where we donot use user exits. ad_dd. it is a customized s/w whcih is develop as per requirement of organization. use ad_dd.register_table to regiseter tables. user_exit FND GETPROFILE is used.

We use it by running the concurrent program.. Very much web enabled. What is the difference between D2K Reports and Oracle Apps Reports? Ans. Differences between D2k Report and Apps Report (1) in D2k Report there is no fecility to schedule the program where as in Apps report we have that fecility (2) in D2k Report we can't use User-Exits where as we can use in Apps Report. executable as one of the concerned API.9? Ans.9 Extra Forms are added to the modules for the ease understanding for the users Many DFF's are enabled in the updated version New KFF's are added to the existing list List of standard reports are added to the exiting. What is API? How we use it? Ans. to add dff values and diff currencies. Attachments concept is introduced.5. 51. What are the changes 10. 50. Navigation Changed for all the modules Feel & look is chnaged. 52. Mean to say.. ..5.Application Program Interface It is an inbuilt PL/SQL coding which explains the particular functionality which interfaces legacy to Apps..7 to 11.Ans. use AP_INVOICEs_All instead of AP_INVOICE(view) as AP_INVOICE is multi-org view and it fetch rows based on org_id. Use Base table instead of multi-org table. Email notification is enabled in 11. API .

WF (workflow ) 54..(3) when Compare to D2k Report in Apps report we can have more fecility to give out put in Fonts and formats.. ASO (Order Capture) 6. BOM 2 Inventory 3. . What is quote to cash cycle in oracle? what are the modules that are covered here? Ans. Order Managemnet (ONT) 5. Quote to cash cycle will essentially have 1. Customers . Order entry (OE) 4. 53. 1.They sell us their goods (PO & iProc) and we pay their Payables invoices in Oracle 3. TCA API's brought a fresh approach to standardise DML's in Oracle Apps. Tell me about TCA(Trading Community Architecture)? Ans.These can be special customers or pseudo vendor if they even sue you as you make them payment. Suppliers .. I think this is one of Oracle's best written modules in APPS but the flaws that exist are primarily because Oracle developed TCA a bit too late after the other modules like Payables Receivables etc. With whom can we possibly trade with in Oracle Applications? To name a few. Employees .We sell our products/services & bill customers using Order Management & Receivables 2. As the name suggests any business with which a company does or did trading or can potentially do trading in future can be in Oracle TCA. What is TCA TCA stands fortrading community architecture.

PA. Once records are inserted into ra_interface_lines_all. Sure we can use the independent vlaue set to the DFF 56. If any errors occur.can be paying us interest or charging penalties or selling us products. First the Master program fires which intern kicks of Import Program. Accounting distribution of each invoice.This is Interesting. run the Autoinvoice interface from AR. Banks Banks .4. Ra_interface_distributions_all. 1) ra_customer_trx_all (Invoice Header Info) . Can anyone give the entire life cycle of CRM? Ans. data is inserted into the following tables. Insurance Company .Even more interesting than 5 above. AutoInvoice is the interface where Customer Invoices are generated. Complete Auto invoice interface information? Ans. Source of Invoices is Order Management. 5. The concurrent has 2 stages. Students . 6. They are your customers as you would bill them. Even more they can become your student again (for post-grad) after resigning as an employee. it can be found in ra_interface_errors_all table. 55. Table stores Invoice Line level details. Once this is completed. However when you make a claim they become your customer (as you get paid). Or they can become your vendor if they become independent contractor latter by selling their services to you. No Answer Available 57. When you buy their policy you become their customer. Interface tables: ra_interface_lines_all. They can become your staff latter. Can we add independent value set to the DFF? Ans.

Data Conversion is receiving data from a legacy system or receiving data from another module ( e.g. But My Question How to Use Structure2 in KFF? Can I use the Same KFF .10. In a Structure u can have 30 segments.What is the difference between Quick Pick and Quick Codes? Ans. Here map your KFF and the structure to use. 60. Segments is Collection of Value Set.2) ra_customer_trx_lines_all (Invoice Line Level Info) 3) ra_cust_trx_line_gl_dist_all (Accounting Info.

Freight etc) 4) ar_payment_schedules_all (All Payment related info) 58. Data Migration is upgrading from one version to another version fro e. Ans.If you wanna create a new structure and use that structure for your KFF follow the following steps.Structure is Collection of Segments.5. from 11. 61. What is Data Migration and what is Conversion?Whats the difference between both? Ans. create a new structure for your KFF.9 to 11. then where and how I can see that concurrent manager is stopped or not?? Ans..  Quick Code is static & it selects values from system table called FND_LOOKUPS. Receivable. One record for each Account Type is inserted into this. Click on that and select others>*Business Group Info. If I stopped the concurrent manager.Code No in Structure2. PA) validating it and converting it to ur our the target module using the standard . Tax. Quick Code is faster then Quick Pick because it uses internal CACHE.mgr Oracle Apps DBA Xpert 59.1.. You can create any number of structure for a KFF. Quick Pick is variable because it selects values from user-defined tables. 3. On Concurrent Manager node type ps -ef | grep FNDLIBR to see if any concurrent request still running or all finished or check in $APPLCSF/$APPLOG/_DD_MM.. Revenue.structure2. ex.5.4.g.. KFF is Collection of Structure1. How to create Structure2 in KFF? But Already Structure1 is Used.2.

How can we tell the difference between seeded tables.Tables that link the trasactions between modules (Eg: PO & AP) or Tables in which a transaction data gets stored. conversion means one time activity interface means periodic activity example:. static tables and the main transaction tables? Ans.Give example? Ans. I want to know what is the column link between OM and AR and also the link between AR and GL? Ans. 62. Can someone give an example of loading data from a control file for AR Lockbox.. 63.using these mentioned columns we can link. Transactions tables . Ans.Static tables are one that are updated using some scripts or triggers.. Can I delete an employee from a table? c. 65.. What is the difference between APIs and DataPumps? d. 64. 66.C olumn link between OM and AR You have customer_id in AR table and sales_to_org_id in transfer the data old version to new version it is called conversion to transfer the data from staging table to interface table it is called interface it is process on every day or every hour .. No Answer Available. a.Fnd_table name are the seeded tables in apps Static Tables .import program... Can someone please tell me what is the date tracked option and how to use it? b. Seeded Tables .. What are user hooks? . Tell me the difference between Conversions and Interfaces.

b. Can I delete an employee from a table? you can but this is will end ur support licence.. if he is still an employee then effective_end_date 01-Dec-4712 for tht employee.g. e. Give me the details of Positive pay file for bank report? Ans. d. tht concept is not used in Apps. 68. When form builder open which trigger will fire first and last? Ans. c. BEWARE. its never practised by developers at all. a.sorry. When first open the form the first trigger going to be fired is PRE-FORM TRIGGER and last . What are user hooks? No Idea. What is the difference between APIs and DataPumps? API are plsql procedures which insert data based on some validations.Donno abt data pumps in detail. Can someone please tell me what is the date tracked option and how to use it? If the table had effective_start_date and effective_end_date columns then its called date tracked table.. never do this. Can we see the time stamp also with the "from" and "to" dates? Ans.API's also do a host of other activities. Oracle suggest that u never touch these shipped tables.e. e. Only DD-MON-YYYY is available 67. No Answer Available. in a person table per_all_people_f it tells us when the person started and ended his employent with a company. Can we see the time stamp also with the from and to dates? No u cant see time stamps...

GL is the perfect answer GL Operates at Set of Books level and not at the operating unit level. Can Any body explain me how to use the following user_exits in apps reports which have flex fields as display/query columns. This is purely dependent on set_of_books_id and not the org_id.trigger is POST-FORM TRIGGER 69. Ans. 70. Which module is not a multiorg? Ans. Where as AP PO AR etc operates at Operating Unit Level and are purely based on org_id. You define all flexfield columns in your report as type CHARACTER even though your table may use NUMBER or DATE or some other datatype. FND FLEXSQL .This user exits allows you to use Flex fields in Reports Call this user exit to create a SQL fragment usable by your report to tailor your SELECT statement that retrieves flexfield values. You call this user exit once for each fragment you need for your select statement. 71. This fragment allows you to SELECT flexfield values or to create a WHERE ORDER BY GROUP BY or HAVING clause to limit or sort the flexfield values returned by your SELECT statement. fnd_request. How to submit concurrent program through pl/sql? Ans.submit_request(parameters) by using this we can submit the concurrent program thru pl/sql.

Ans. make the status of the item "inactive" on the main region of the Item Define form INVIDITM in 'Item Status' field. we can use normal tables also as staging table but we need to truncate table for each insert. How do you setup Unit of Measure for an item? . Interview Questions for Oracle 11i Apps (Manufacturing)?Item Setup FAQs Once an item is assigned to an organization. is it possible to remove this association at a later time? A. See the Oracle Inventory User's Guide. This will prevent users from transacting against the item although the item will continue to be included in LOV's. --Q. If it has been transacted against youcannot delete the item from the organization. so we need data to be erased after inserting into acutal tables. 16. You can. If you have assigned an item to an organization. moreover these staging tables are used to do some primray validations before inserting data into actual tables. so we go for staging tables. these staging tables are used to hold temporary data i.e data with in the temporary table will be automatically get deleted when we issue commit or when we close oracle session that depends on how we create table eg: create global temporary table eg1(name varchar2(20) num number(10)) on commit delete rows. thats why we go for temporary tables. this will delete the rows on temporary table when we issue a commit at sql prompt.

A. When transacting an item, it will always default to the defined Primary Unit of Measure, so if you need to use another UOM, you must select it from the List of Values when you transact it. This implies that you want the Primary Unit of Measure to be that which is used most often and which is likely to be the smallest unit of that type of item. Once you have set the primary UOM for an item, it CANNOT be changed. --- Q. How do I change an item's locator control method once I have transacted against it, for example from No Control to Prespecified? A. You cannot change this attribute if there is onhand quantity for the item. You must first perform a miscellaneous issue of all quantity. Then the attribute can be changed and once the locator(s) are set up, you can perform a miscellaneous receipt to receive the quantity back into a specified subinventory/locator. --- Q. How do I change an item's Unit of Measure? A. You CANNOT change the UOM for an item once the UOM is assigned to the item. The suggested solution is as follows: If the item has not been transacted you can delete the item and then re-add it with the correct UOM. If the item has been transacted and has no outstanding orders, purchase orders or WIP jobs you can do the following if approved by your management. 1. Rename the existing item '123' to '123-Bad UOM' and save the item. Any prior history for item '123' will now be associated with item '123-Bad UOM'. 2. Add a new item '123' with the correct UOM. --- Q. How do I delete an Item Template I no longer use? A. Suggested steps to follow to delete unwanted Item Templates: 1. Navigate Setup: Items: Templates - Find Item Templates form appears. 2. Click on the LOV, and select the Item Template that is to be removed. 3. Click the [Find] button on the Find Item Templates form. The Item Templates Summary form appears, with the Item Template selected. 4. Click the [Open] button on the Item Templates Summary form, and the Item Templates form appears. 5. From the menu, select Edit | Delete Record, then select Action | Save and Proceed. 6. Close the Item Templates Summary form. Be careful not to delete Item Templates you may need again as they are not retrievable once deleted.

--- Q. Is there a way to create custom item attributes? A. No but you can create and define the descriptive flexfield for this form. This will allows you to associate additional data with an item such as an attribute. See theOracle System Administrators Users Guide and the Oracle Flexfields Manual for information on creating Descriptive Flexfields. --- Q. Why does the application prompt you for Organization when you enter the Master Item form for the very first time even though you have only one Master Organization. A. Once you setup a Multi-Org environment and you enter the form for the first time, there is the possibility there can be more than one MasterOrganization. The application therefore prompts you for an organization which is then used to determine the Master Organization associated with it. In other words, you are choosing the Master Organization by choosing one of the Orgs that belongs to it. --- Q. How do you change the control level for item attributes from master level to organization level for example. When I try to change this in the Attribute Control Form, I get the message: frm-40200: field protected against update. A. First change value of the field called "status" to "not used". You should then be able to change the control level of the attribute from master level to org level. Make sure and change tostatus back to what it was before the change and save the record. --- Q. How do I inactivate an item? A. On the Master Item Form (Inventory->Items->Master Items), change the item status field to "Inactive" or any another defined status which disables all attributes that make an item usable (stockable, shippable, orderable, etc.). The "Inactivate" status comes pre-seeded with the Application and is for this purpose. --- Q. What characters can I use in an item name (including special characters)? A0. The only hard fast rule is not to use the character designated in the segment delimiter for the System Item Flexfield. Also, you will not be able to enter any characters not allowed by the valueset associate with the flexfield. It is recommended that you avoid the use of any char that can be used as a delimiter to avoid future problems. It is best to not use special characters like #@%& if at all possible as these may have a negative impact down the road. Some characters,

like percent (%), underscore (_), and pound(#), have special meaning when performing queries by form as do the query operator characters (=!><). --- Q. Can you change the costing enabled and inventory asset flags on an item that has already been transacted against even if there is no on-hand quantities for the item? A. Yes, you can change the flags. If you are changing the flags from checked to unchecked you will receive a warning that the associated cost records will be deleted alerting you that the Cost of Goods will not be calculated any longer for transactions of this item. In effect what you are doing is changing the item from an asset item to an expense item. If you are changing the flags from being unchecked to checked then a database trigger will fire and cause cost records to be added for this item. There is no warning that is given. --- Q. When I create a new item, and choose to assign to All orgs, the application allows me to even though some of those organizations are restricted to my responsibility. Is this the way it is supposed to work? If I assign in anOrganization by Organization fashion, I am not allowed to assign to the restricted organizations. A. The situation described is standard functionality. Even if a responsibility has limited access to a certain number of organizations, the "Assign to All Organizations" check box will assign the item to all orgs, not just the ones limited to the user's responsibility. --- Q. How do you tell that an item is an expense item or asset item? A. Navigate to the Organization Items form: Inventory->Items->Organization Items. Query up the item in question. Change to the "Costing" alternative region. The value of the "Inventory Asset Value" flag determines this. If checked, the item is an asset item. --- Q. Is there a way to delete or disable an item revision once entered? A. There is no way to delete a revision nor is there a way to disable it. It must remain there for historical data. The suggested workaround is to create a new item, transfer any Quantity onhand from the old item to new item and delete the old item. The only down side is you will lose some transaction history.

Furthermore. · Add the concurrent program to the request group of the responsibility 43. do SQL operations. · Define the concurrent program for the executable registered. Triggers are used in forms for event this form there is a one button click and register your report parameter. an autonomous transaction is fully independent. They allow parallel queries. you can log events. the main transaction. The different type of triggers available in forms are : · Key-triggers · Navigational-triggers · Transaction-triggers · Message-triggers · Error-triggers · Query based-trigger 45. The steps to register concurrent programs in apps are as follows : · Register the program as concurrent executable. That makes autonomous transactions less error-prone than regular transactions and easier to use. and so on. 42. reusable software components. What is the use of triggers in Forms ? Ans. and all the transaction control statements including SET TRANSACTION. So. Temporary tables are used in Interface programs to hold the intermediate data. commit or roll back those operations. and the procedure need not know about the application's transaction context. The data is loaded into temporary tables first and then. More important. distributed processing. It shares no locks. What are Autonomous transactions ? Give a scenario where you have used Autonomous transaction in your reports ? Ans. stored procedures can start and finish autonomous transactions on their own. Scenario : You can use autonomous transaction in your report for writing error messages in . increment retry counters. You can write PL/SQL code in triggers to respond to a particular event occurred in your forms like when user presses a button or when he commits the form. autonomous transactions have all the functionality of regular transactions. A calling application need not know about a procedure's autonomousoperations . the data is loaded into the interface tables. then resume the main transaction.

How to attach reports in Oracle Applications ? Ans.. Design your report put your file into product_top>version>language>file. The cursor are used to handle multiple row query in PL/SQL. 47. Oracle uses implicit cursors to handle all it’s queries. Key Flexfield: Key flexfield are flexible enough to let any organization use the code scheme they want wothout programming. Oracle uses unnamed memory spaces to store data used in implicit cursors.Key flexfield can be used to represent codes that is made up of meaningful segment to identify GL a/c Part no. The record group can contain static data as well it can access data from database tables thru sql queries.. Descriptive Flexfield: They provide customizable expansion space on ur . 49. with REF cursors you can define a cursor variable which will point to that memory space and can be used like pointers in our 3GLs. A flexfield appers on ur form as a pop-up window that contains a prompt for each segment. and other business entities. 50.. There are five report trigger : · Before Report · After Report · Before Parameter Form · After Parameter Form · Between Pages The Firing sequence for report triggers is  Before Parameter Form  After Parameter Form  Before Report  Between Pages  After Report. 46.Oracle app store these codes in key flexfields.your database tables.

A flexfield is a placeholder set of fields that can be configured by customers for use by their view-only label/data pair text box date picker choice list LOV field 54. What are global segments? What is flex field? Ans. Once configured. which are configured as a set of fields that are indistinguishable from core (default) . Global and context-sensitive segments may consist of the following widgets: http://www. What is segment qualifier? Ans. Segment qualifiers hold extra information about individual segments such as if the account is an Asset Liability or Expense if you can post to the account and more. segment qualifier are used to identify a particular segement within key flexfield (the controlling field) See below for more details. the customer-defined fields (label/widget pairs) may appear in either form or tabular layouts. There are two main types of flexfields: Descriptive flexfields. When we define a segment value in the Segment Values window we must also assign qualifiers which determine the account type (asset liability or expense) whether budgeting is allowed whether posting is allowed and other information specific to the segment value. Global segment is a type of decsriptive flex field.html#global_descriptive 55. Global Segment: always appears on the customer's application page regardless of the context please refer to note Allow Budgeting Allow Posting Account Type Control Account Reconciliation Flag.

for Oracle Reports the rdf file must be in the srw an Oracle Report. 57. Reports? Ans. which consist of multiple segments for entry of codes. Step 2: Define the concurrent program Navigate to the Define Concurrent Program form (AOL Reference manual pg 9-87) This form links a concurrent program to the executable you just defined. 5. It should show a Report Group name. application and execution method. 2. put the name of the stored procedure. as well as defines the programs parameters. Check Standard Submission if you want to be able to submit this program from the Standard Report Submission form. such as a product serial numbers or bank account numbers. Query this name in Security->Responsibility->Report Add your new program to the list of available programs. Save the FORM and move it to UNIX. you will be able to submit your custom program. the file must be in the bin directory. The concurrent manager will look in the appropriate directory under the application's top directory. fill in just the filename. short name and description.application fields. Define FORM as FUNCTION. How to register Form . Fill in the executable name. Develop the form in Developer 2000. Now when you go to submit a request with this responsibility. [Form to be moved to $CUSTOM_TOP/forms/US] 3. For spawned programs. For the Execution File.

What is the difference in Quick pick & quick code? Ans.. How can u see the global parameter values in the form without coding? Ans.5.Define the corresponding flexfield in the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger of your form..EVENT procedure. 10. 9..Activate the event like WHEN-NEW-ITEM-INSTANCE and WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM in the created non-database field item by using FND_FLEX. 8. for testing purpose 63. One way of viewing parameter values at run-time in Apps is by Navigating to Tool->Examine menu. The necessary step we have to follow to implement Flexfield in forms: 1.Insert few data into the table.. name the triggers & user exits? Ans.Nevigate to Oracle System Administrator Responsibility->Corresponding flexfield Segment. What is balancing segment? Ans. NO ANSWER 65. Host resource is located under AU_TOP/11. 62. Enter the block name as parameter and then give the parameter name in the item field and then press tab.Nevigate to Oracle System Administrator Responsibility->Corresponding flexfield Register.6. Quick codes form is used to predefine a list of values for a particular field. How to implement Flex fields in forms .. 6.Copy the above MENU and go to Application Developer and query on MENU tab 58. 2. 3. Run your form and text it.. 60.examine 64. Where you will keep the host source code? Ans.0/bin Ans might be C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. Create a table through which we are going to create the flex field. 7.Registered the column of the table. 59.Create a non-database field in your form where you are going to implement the flexfield.debug('message string'). How will u display message for testing the form u modified? Ans.. No special trigger created in the form when it is registered. Balancing segment is the level for balancing the accounting entries. What was the structure of the accounting flexfield in previous project? Ans. 61. For example the accounting flexfield structure is company-costcenter-project. .fire a commit statement after inserting the data.Registered the table.the triggers mentioned is created only when one creates the master detail relation ship between two data blocks. What are special triggers created in the form when u register it? Ans. 11. You can use fnd_message. 4. 5.

Order Management also provides the option of not using any reference source and entering return line information without defaults. but most of the companies include this segment in the accounting flexfield to post the assets and expenses costcenter wise and get the report accordingly. Having 2 different Accounting Flexfield structure implies that they should correspong to 2 different SoB's because if any of the 3 C's chage (Currency Chart of Accounts and Currency) SoB differs. It is one of the segment in the accounting flexfield. It is interfaced to AR 71. What is customer merging? Ans. No. You can create on account credits in the Transaction window or through AutoInvoice. The header information about transactions are stored in this view(RA_CUSTOMER_TRX_ALLtable). 66. If you create an on-account credit from a return sales credits are reduced according to the sales credit information you enter on the return. What all things are stored in RA_CUSTOMER_TRX? Ans. If the item is returned and the order flow for your return includes the Invoicing Activity and if you use a reference source for a return line you can populate the Credit Invoice field. By definition credits you assign to your customer s account that are not related to a specific invoice. Can you have two accounting Flexfields in AR? Ans. Accounting Flexfield defines a Chart of Accounts. This results in the creation of a single return line and an on-account credit. What are on-account sales credits? Ans. 69. In this case Oracle Receivables creates an applied credit memo and the sales credits from your original invoices are reduced accordingly regardless of the sales credits you enter on the return. 67. You cannot have more than one Accounting Flexfields for a Set of Books in AR. Customer merging is done to avoid the Customer Duplication For Ex: You can Create Same Customer: ABC Limited as 1) ABC Limited 2) ABC LTD So You can merge ABC LTD to ABC Limited and Maintain ABC Limited going forward 70. What happens when u complete an invoice? Ans. It is not necessary that this segment should always be there in the accounting flexfield. What is cost center segment? Ans. One can have >1 Accounting flexfield if he has >1 SoB created.If you define the balancing segment as company then both debit and credit should be balanced at the company level when the transactions are posted to GL. The RA_CUSTOMER_TRX_ALL table stores invoice debit memo commitment bills receivable and . 68.
