Types of Projects a. Implementation Project: Client will be using another software to maintain the business solutions. Now the client wants to have Oracle Applications package to capture the data. That time we will start setups, data conversions, gap analysis, functions document preparation from the scratch. - first time
Old System Cobal Fox Pro New System Oracle Apps

b. Customization Project: Client was already using Oracle Applications, now the client would like to have few more modules to cover the business, for that we will customize new modules and integrate with existing modules.
Existing Ora Apps Few modules Financial Modules Migration Manufacturing Modules (Customization and Integration)

c. Migration or Up-gradation Project: Client was already using Oracle Applications older version now client would like to move new version of Oracle Applications that time we will migrate older version objects in to new version.
Existing Ora Apps Version 10.7 New Version 11.5.9 or 11.5.10

Version 10.7 11.0.3 11.5.3 11.5.4 11.5.5 11.5.6 11.5.7 11.5.8 11.5.9 11.5.10

d. Support or Maintenance: Once the implementation, customization and migration are over, then supporting project will be started where we will give supporting for the objects which were already developed, customized and migrated.



Types of Modules

Module: Module is nothing but one application it contains forms, reports and programs which are related for specific business functionality. Example: PO – Module – This will be used to capture purchasing information like suppliers, their contact details, supplying material, unit price and discounts and so on. ERP Financial AP – Accounts Payable AR – Accounts Receivables FA – Fixed Assets CM – Cash Management GL – General Ledger PA – Project Accounting Manufacturing PO – Purchase Order Inv – Invoicing WIP – Work in Process BOM – Bills of Materials OM – Order Management Production MRP Schedules Enquiring HRMS People CRM Customer Relationship and Management Tele Services Service Contract Mobile Process

Payroll Benefits OTL – Oracle Time & Labour


Modules Integration :

WIP Production Supplier Inventory BOM MRP Scheduling PO QA Testing AP GL HRMS FA CM AR OM Sales, Shipping


4) Types of Documents: The methodology of behind is AIM – Application Implementation Methodology developed by Oracle Corporation RICE Module Design Forms & Reports Conversions Interface Number MDO 50 MDO 70 MDO120 CVO40 CVO 60 Support CR Document Name Functional Design Document Technical Design Document Migration Document Conversion functional Design Document Conversion Technical Design Document Change Request Prepared by Functional Consultant Technical Consultant Technical Consultant Functional Consultant Technical Consultant Technical Consultant

NOTE: Migration Document is two types 1) Installation Process: Installation Stages or three types’ development, testing, production. If any of the form or report is developed, when it is moving from one instance to another instance, to be moved all the components of that. Example functions, procedure, packages etc. This process will be done by DBA. 2) Execution Process: In this the execution of the form or report with a screen shoot to be specified along with the functionality CR Document: The document tell about the request made by the client, it could be very small change like single filed to be added or deleted to the form or procedure to be deleted.

Custom_ TOP: Custom top will be created by customer (client) for the custom development and customizations. At least one custom top is required for every client. We can have multiple custom tops also as per the requirements NOTE: 1) We are not suppose to develop are customize the product tops like AP, AR, GL, PO 2) If oracle applies the patches (scripts) against the application the script will over right both developments and customization whatever we have done. That is the reason we will us custom top. Oracle will not touch the custom top and it will not provide any type of support. US Folder: This folder is language specific by default American English language will be implemented. If we want to have multiple languages we can implement in Oracle Applications by specifying different folders. This folder is only applicable for Forms and Reports because both are GUI objects.

APPS Schema: This one of the Schema in Oracle Applications database it contains only synonyms. It has got access other schema database objects PO Schema: It contains only PO Objects like PO Tables Indexes, Sequences, and views and materialized views and so on. It will connect to PO Schema we can access only PO objects. We can’t access other schema database objects. NOTE

We are not suppose to create tables in apps schema, we will create the tables in custom schema then we will provide grants to apps schema While development of forms, reports, programs we will always connect to apps schema in oracle applications. AOL – Application Object Library

After o development / customization n the objects to be registered with this. This has got the two responsibilities. 1) System Administrator: Which has got the functions like 1) users, 2) Responsibilities 3) Reports development / customization 4) Procedure 5) Printer Installation 6) Admin activities - Server Monitoring, Request submission 2) Application Developer: Which has got the functions like 1) Forms 2) Menus 3) Messages 4) Flexi fields 5) Profiles


After installation of Oracle Applications the default User details as follows User Name : OPERATIONS Password : WELCOME And connect and select System Administrator responsibility To create New User Security – User – Define – Enter To move in the form some shortcut keys 1) If you want to query all the record – Ctrl + F11 2) If you want to query few records for form a.

Concurrent Programe Is nothing but instances of execution file along with parameter and incompatible programs • We can register 11 types of executable as Concurrent Programe • Advantages o We can execute multi language programmes as Concurrent Programe o When we run Concurrent Programe we can utilize 100% local machine hardware capacity o We can change the Concurrent Programe output based on employee profile o We can submit only Request o We can schedule the Concurrent Programe as per client requirement. Report Registration 1) Develop the report (.rdf) as per client requirement by using Reports 6i Builder 2) Move the report from the local machine in to the server a. CUS_TOP\11.5.0\reports\US .rdf (or) b. PO_TOP\11.5.0\reports\US .rdf 3) Select System Administrator a. Create Executable b. Executable name c. Application Name d. Execution Method e. Report (.rdf) file name 4) Create Concurrent Programe and attach a. Executable b. Parameters c. Incompatibilities 5) Create Request group and attach Concurrent Programe 6) Create Responsibility a. Request Group – Concurrent Programe b. Data Group – Collection of User IDs c. Menu – Collection of forms 7) Create user attach Responsibility to the user 8) User will select the responsibility and go to SRS (Standard Request Submission) window submit the request Executable => Concurrent Programme => Request Group => User=> SRS Note: For Single Executable we can have different concurrent programs with different parameters To create simple report with below SQL statement Select User_ID, User_name, Trunc(creation_date) from fnd _user


Executable: After moving .rdf in to the server, we will crate executable by specifying execution name execution method and application name. Concurrent Programe: After creation of executable we will create concurrent Programe by attaching executable, if parameters are there we will attach parameter if incompatibility programs are there we will add those programs , for single executable we create multiple concurrent programs with different parameters. Request Group: After creation of concurrent program we must add the programme to the request group. Request Group is nothing but collection of Concurrent Programs and Reports. Responsibility: It is level of authority where we will combine Data Group, Request Group and Menu. Request Group is optional menu and data group is mandatory. Data Group: Data Group is nothing but collection of applications names and Oracle User Names based on this Username data will be retrieved from database. Menu: Menu is nothing but collection of functions (forms) and submenus. Create a simple report using below query Select * from PO_VENDORS Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name, Creation_Date Navigation Executable Window - Concurrent=>Programme=>Executable Concurrent Programem Window - Concurrent=>Programme=>Define Request Group – Security=>Responsibility=>Request Responsibility – Security=>Responsibility=>Define User – Security=>User=>Define SRS Window – View Menu => Requests To find out output file path and log file path we will write the below select statement Select logfile_name, outfile_name from fnd_concurrent_requests Where Request_ID = ‘ ‘;


Reports with Parameters Data Model Select * from FND_USER USER_ID, USER_NAME, CRATION_DATE Parameters From USER_ID, To USER_ID Layout Model Designing of layout User Parameters P_From P_To P_Title Data Model – Change the SQL Query Select * from FND_USER WHERE user_id between :P_From :P_To Compile and save To register the parameter with applications Concurrent Programe window to be opened.

Note: We can change the sequence based on the requirement.

If report is having the parameters then we have to register those parameters at the time of creation Concurrent Programe. Value Set: values set is nothing but list values. It will be used to validate values while entering the parameters. Token: Token is one the filed wile be used to map concurrent Programe parameters with report builder find variable. We will enter the find variable name in the toke field so that parameters will be passed to the find variable. Required check box: By using this check box we can’t make the parameters mandatory or optional Enabled Check Box: By using this we can enable or disable the parameter. Display Check Box: By using this we can hide or display the parameters in SRS window. Range Option: While defining the from and to parameters if we wanted to accept values in accession order menus from values is low and to value is high we will select the options called low and high. Default Types: If we are hiding the parameters user can’t enter the values that time we can pass default values by using default type and default value filed. SRS Window – Copy Button: This will be used to find out recent Concurrent Programe list with parameters in SRS Window.

Default Types


When we are hiding the parameter in SRS windows user can’t enter the values that time we can pass values internally by using defaults types. 1) Constant: If we want to pass constant values as default then we will select default type constant and we will specify the values in default value field. 2) Current Date: System Date 3) Current Time: System Time 4) Profile: By using the profile option we can pass user profile values as default 5) SQL Statement: When we want to pass select statement to rest as default values that time we will select default types as SQL statement and write the select statement in the default values filed. Select statement should not return more then one value. 6) Segment: When we wanted to pass previous parameter values as default to the next parameter then we will use segment, select default type as segment give the parameter name in the default values field. Report Builders Data Model Select User_ID, User_name, Trunc(creation_date) from fnd_user; Layout Model Object Navigator User Parameters 1) P_From_Date - Date - Input Mask 2) P_To_Date – Date –Input Mask 3) P_Title – Character – 100

Data Model Select User_ID, User_name, Trunc(creation_date) from fnd_user Where trunc (creation_date) between: P_From_Date and: P_To_Date Create a Summery Column Count of UserIDs Oracle Applications To register the parameter P_From_Date – Values Set – FND_DATE Default Values. P_From_Date – Current Date P_To_Date – Current Date


P_Title – Constant To hide parameter – To Uncheck the Display Check box in bottom of the form To write SQL Statement Min and Max creation Date Select MIN(TRUNC(CREATION_DATE)) FROM FND_USER Select MAX(TRUNC(CREATION_DATE)) FROM FND_USER Default values type – SQL Statement option Default Value field – SQL Statement Segment Default Type as – Segment Option Default Values – Specify the previous parameter VLUES SETS - Application – Validation – Set

Value set is nothing but list of values with validation. It will restrict the user to enter valid values. These are 8 types. 1) NONE : When we write maintain some format conditioning NO – LOV Emp NO: => Only nos. 0 – 9 => 35 to 7856 => 45 to 0045 2) INDEPENDENT: Yes – LOV – user must select values from the list 3) DEPENDENT: Yes – LOV – The value which will depend upon the previous parameter Country Code: City Code:

i.e. based on the selection of country code lov city code lov will change


4) TABLE: Combination functionality of Independent and Dependent to provide database table name and column name. 5) TRANSLATED: Independent – Multi language values 6) TRANSLATED DEPENDENT: Dependent – Multi language values 7) Special : To Display Flexi field data 8) Pair: To Display Flexi field data.

1) NONE a. When we want to restrict the user to enter the values based on some conditions then we will use NONE type. Here no list of values user manually will enter the value based on the conditions values will be accepted. b. Enter the values set name select format type enter the minimum size select validation type as NONE. c. Once the value set is created we can use it for any concurrent program either single time or multiple times. d. Once the value set is created we can’t delete if value if value set is being used by concurrent program if we want to delete release from the concurrent program then we can delete by using delete option.

2) INDEPENDENT – a. Provide the values to the user either number or character creates the independent value set to enter the values for the value set ApplicationValidation-Values b. If we want to provide list values to the user we will go for selecting independent values set type user must select the values from the list. c. Open the value set for an enter value set name select format type and select validation type as Independent.


d. Copy the value set name go to values screen enter the values set name and click Find enter the values in the values field save the transactions attach value set to concurrent program. e. Once the values are inserted in to the list we can’t delete instead of deletion we can disable by using enable check box or effective date from and to. 3) DEPENDENT a. Dependent value set is nothing but another LOV but values will be changing based on the previous Independent value set. b. When we are creating dependent we must have 2 parameters 1)Independent 2) Dependent c. Open the value set form create Independent value set go to values from enter the values. d. Open the values set form create dependent value set by selecting validation type as dependent. e. Select edit information button attach Independent value set what ever we have created. f. Copy the value set name go to values screen click on find button enter the values based on the Independent value. India Hyderabad Mumbai Chennai Bangalore Newyork Newjersy California London Paris



4) TABLE – Select user_name, user_id, creation_date From FND-USER Where row num < 20 Order by User_name desc a. If values are available in database table then we will go for using table value set, we will give the table name and column name system will retrieve the values from the database table. b. Open the value set form and give the value set name select validation type is table click edit information button. c. Enter the table name, column name in the value field. d. Enter the where clause order by clause in the text item called where order by. e. Use the additional column field to display extra columns data in LOV, we have to use alias name while specifying additional columns. f. Table Application : It is a optional field based on the table name we can find out table application name. g. Go to Application Developer Responsibility – Application=>Database=>Table query the records based on table name.


h. Select User_ID, USER_name from FND_USER – From front end user name should be available and internally user_id to be passed. i. Id Column in Value set form – If we want to display one column to the user in the front end and pass another column value internally we will use ID column. j. Meaning Column – This will be used to display the extra columns like additional columns it will work like a additional columns k. Display the values from multiple tables – i. At the time of giving the table name enter table names with alias name by specifying. ( , ) ii. AT the time of selecting give the column name by giving the alias name, column name. iii. Join condition is mandatory in where / orderby clause iv. PO_VENDORS, PO_VENDORS_SITE_ALL. Select pv.vendor_name, pvs.vendor_site_code From po_vendors pv, po_vendors_sites_all pvs Where pv.vendor_id = pvs.vendor_id. 5) TRANSLATED INDEPENDENT & TRANSLATED DEPENDENT a. These two value set will work like independent and dependent value set but these two value sets will be used to display translation values (other thane English language values) if application is installed for mlti language there we will create these two value sets. Select * from FND_LANGUAGES Installed_Flag – I - Installed languages B - Base language D - Disabled language

6) SPECIAL & PAIR – a. These two value sets will be used to display flexi filed data.

Standards to develop a report in Oracle Applications – 3 STANDARD STEPS. 1) Define the mandatory parameter called P_CONC_REQUEST_ID – This is one of the bind variable when ever we submit a request in SRS window that request ID will be passed to this bind variable, based on this request id we can execute concurrent request process. Without this find variable we can’t use userexits. 2) Call the userexit in Before Report Trigger • SRW.USEREXIT(FND SRWINIT) 3) Call the userexit in after report trigger • SRW.USEREXIT(FND SRWEXIT) Report Triggers 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Before Parameter Form Trigger After Parameter Form Trigger Before Report Trigger – Before retrieving the data from database Between Pages Trigger - when ever courser goes between pages at first time. After Report Trigger – After out is reached the destination i.e. printer, file, email.

Before going to start PO application we have to define following things 1. Items Creation 2. Suppliers creation 3. Buyer creation

1) Item Creation a. Open the user from in System Administrator Responsibility attach the responsibility called Inventory, Vision Operations(USA) b. Open the Items from - Items – Master Item – enter, system will show the organization list, select the organization vision operations, enter the item name and description. c. Go to Inventory tab check the check box called Inventory Item. d. Go to purchasing tab check the check box called purchased and save the transactions. e. We can assign the item to the multiple organization by selecting tool menu – Organization assignment option check the check box called assigned. Select * from ORG_ORGANIZATION_ DEFINETIONS - Organizatio_ID is primary key column Select * from MTL_SYSTEM_ITEM_S Where sgment1=’Keyboad’ - Inventory_item_ID - Organizatin_ID - Composite Primary Key Select MSI.SEGMENT ITEM OOD.ORGANIZATION_NAME From MTL_SYSTEM_ITEM_B MSI ORG_ORGANIZATION_DEFINETIONS OOD Where MSI.ORGANIZATION_ID = OOD.ORGANIZATION_ID And MSI.SEGMENT1 = ‘KEYBOARD’ 2) Supplier Creation a. Select the responsibility called Purchasing, Vision Operations(USA) b. Open the suppliers form - Supply Base – Suppliers press enter c. Enter the suppliers name and save the transaction and we will get supplier number select status button enter site address select contact tab – enter contact details and save Select * from PO_VENDORS where SEGMENT1=’5080’ - VENDOR_ID – Primary Key Select * from PO_VENDOR_SITESM_ALL where VENDOR_ID=’1010’ - VENDOR_SITE_ID – Primary Key Select * from PO_VENDOR_CONTACTS where VENDOR_SITE_ID= ‘2215’ - VENDOR_CONTACT_ID – Primary Key


3) Buyer Creation: a. Attach the Responsibility called HRMS Management; Open the Employee form (N) HRMS Manager – People – Enter and Maintain. b. Select new button enter employee name and Date of Birth, select action as creation employment chose the option called buyer and save the transaction. Select * from PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F Where EMPLOYEE_NUMBER = ‘893’ PERSON_ID is Primary Key column c. Go to system administrator create user name attach employee name in the filed called Person and save the transaction. Select FU. USER_NAME, PPF.FULL_NAME From FND_USER FU, PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F PPF Where FU.USER_NAME = ‘20USER’ And FU.EMPLOYEE_ID = PPF.PERSON_ID

d. Copy the employee name go to purchasing application open the Buyers form attach to the Buyers list - Setup – Personnel – Buyers and enter. Select * from PO_AGENTS This contains only Buyer list and primary key is AGEN_ID PO PROCESS 1) Requisition: It is one of the purchasing document will be crated by employers when ever they required goods or services or training, we will find 2 types of requisitions. a. Internal Requisition: This will be created, when we receiving the materials from other organizations(Branches) b. Purchase Requisition: This will be created, when we are receiving the materials from outside means suppliers. c. We will enter the requisition information at 3 levels i.e. Headers, Lines, Distributions. d. One header will be there at least one line multiple line we create for every line at least one distribution or multiple distributions will be there. e. Open the requisitions form – Requisitions – Requisitions and enter. f. Select the requisition type at header level enter item details at line level (item Name, quantity, price and need by date) select bistributions buttion enter distribution details like quantity and account details and save the transactions. g. Select approve button press OK system will send the document for approval. h. Go to requisition number select find button, it will show requisition approved status. Select * from PO_REQUISITON_HEADERS_ALL


WHERE SEGMENT1 = ‘1656’ Primary key - REQUISITION_HEAD_ID Select * from PO_REQUISTION_LINES_ALL WHERE REQUISITION_HEADER_ID = ‘11458’ Primary Key - REQUISITION_LINE_ID Select * from PO_REG_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL WHERE REQUISITION_LINE_ID= 9922 Primary Key - DISTRIBUTION_ID i. Cancel the Requisition: Open the requisition summery form enter requisition number select find button go to tools menu select option called ‘Control’ and chose the option as cancel requisition.

Select AUTHORIZATION_STATUS from PO_REQUISITION_HEADER_ALL j. We can find out requisition history by using tools menu option called view action history. Select * from PO-ACTION_HISTORY Where OBJECT_ID = REQUISITION_HEADER_ID Select PAH.ACTION_CODE PDF.FULL_NAME From PO_ACTION_HISTORY PAH PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F PPF Where OBJECT_ID = 11459 And PAH.EMPLOYEE_ID = PPF.PERSON_ID k. Enter manual requisition Number: Setup – Organization – Purchasing Options and enter - go to numbering tab select requisition number entry as manual type. 2) RFQ – REQUEST FOR QUOTATION: It is one of the purchasing document after requisition is approved. We will go for creation of RFQ we have 3 types of RFQs. a. Bid : If company is going to purchase large number of items which are expensive. We will create bid RFQ where we will specify Headers, lines and shipments, where we are not specify any price breaks in Bid RFQ. b. Catalog : If company is purchasing materials regularly fixed quantity location and date, then we will select regularly we can include price breaks at different levels. c. Standard : This will be created for items we need only once or not regularly, we can include price breaks at different quality levels. 3) QUOTATIONS : After creation of RFQ document we will send this document to the different suppliers who are going to supply the materials, next we will receive quotations from the suppliers either by email or fax or by phone, a. Again quotation are 3 types i.e. Bid, Catalog and Standard b. What ever the quotation we are received from the suppliers we will enter those quotation details in the system for future purpose. c. If we are sending bid RFQ to the suppliers we will receive the bid quotation for catalog RFQ we will receive catalog quotation for standard RFQ we will receive standard quotation.


d. RFQ – Terms and conditions. i. Payment Terms – At the time of creating RFQ document we will specifying the payment terms like due date, interest rates and so on. ii. Fright Terms: It is nothing by at transportation charges whether supplier will bear it or buyer. iii. FOB(Foot on Board) : It is responsibility of material damage or material missing during the transportation. iv. Carrier : We will give the transportation company name so that supplier will supply the materials by this transportation company. e.

4) Purchase Orders : It is one of the purchasing document at the time of purchasing from the supplier we will create this document by specifying terms and conditions and shipping details distribution details and so on. We have 4 types of Purchase Orders a. b. c. d. Standard Planned Blanket Contract

Purchase Order Types Summery

Standard Purchase Order When we require the materials from suppliers we will cerate standard PO by specifying terms and conditions price, quantity and so on. Select * from PO_HEADERS_ALL where segment1=’3445’ and type_lookup_id = ‘STANDARD’ Select * from Po_lines_all where PO_Header_id = 11858 Select * from PO_Line_locations_all where Po_line_id=12216 Primary Key – LINE_LOCATION_ID Select * from po_distributions_all where line_location_id Primary Key – PO_DISTRIBUTION_ID

Select approve button system will submit the document for approvals. Copy the PO number and go to purchase or summary form enter PO number select find button. To cancel the purchase order go the tools menu – control option. Tools menu copy document to create the same document. Auto Create o By using Auto Create option we can create purchase orders automatically from approved requisition by selecting document type as Purchase order.




Blanket Purchase Order

• • •

When ever company would like to have the agreement with supplier that time first we will create Blanket Agreement, when ever we require materials we will go for releasing the purchase orders. Open the purchase order form select Blanket Purchase agreement and enter the details and approve the purchase order. Select releases form either blanket PO Number and Item quantity details select distributions button enter distribution details, select approve button for approvals.

Retcode: It returns the status of concurrent program either 0-Normal, 1-Warnining, 2-Error API – Application Programe Interface – FND_FILE: API is nothing but Application Programming Interface, instead of DBMS_OUTPUT package we will use FND_FILE.LOG to write in the log file, FND_FILE.OUTPUT to write in the output file. NOTE: We can register procedure or package procedure as concurrent Programe to do some DML validation and some other programming logic, we can’t register function as concurrent Programe.


Registration Steps

• • • • • • •

Develop the procedure and compile, specification of the procedure will be stored in the Database. Select System Administrator Responsibility - Crate executable with execution method as ‘PL/SQL Stored Procedure” Create concurrent Programe and attach – Executable, Parameters, and Incompatibilities. Create the Request Group and the Concurrent Programe Attach the Request Group to the Responsibility Attach Responsibility to the User User submit Request from SRS window

Simple Example Create or Replace Procedure EX20( Errorbuf out Varchar2, Retcode out Varchar2) as L_no number(8) default 1000, L_Name Varchar2(100) Default ‘Mr. Rajan Bhatnagar, Begin FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.LOG, ‘Write message’ || L_no) FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.OUTPUT, ‘Write message’ || L-Name) Exception When Other then FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.LOG, ‘Error has occurred during the execution’) End EX20 Procedure with parameters Develop a Procedure which will take two parameters 1. Vendor ID 2. New Vendor Name System should find weather vendor ID is exist or not if it exists it should update the Vendor Name. Create or Replace Procedure VEN_UPDATE20( Errorbuf OUT Varchar2, Retcode OUT Varchar2, V_ID IN Number, V_Name IN Varchar2) as

SQL * LOADER - Oracle Tool It is one of the Oracles tool will be used to upload the data from flat files in to oracle database tables. 1. Flat file or Data file: It contains the data in specific format it will be either text file (.txt) or excel sheet. (.txt, .dat, .csv – Comma Separated Value) 2. Control File: It contains SQL * Loader program contains data file path, database table name and column mapping and soon, once we develop the control file we will execute this, that time data will be transfer from file to Oracle Database Table, during this data transfer, the following files will be created. The extension of the control files is .ctl. 3. Badfile: It contains the rejected records which are rejected by SQL*Loader, because of bad format or data type mismatch and so on. The extension of the bad file .bad. 4. Discard file: It contains the rejected records which are rejected by control file if we have specified any condition in the control file if record is not satisfying the condition the complete record will be inserted in the discard file. The extension of file is .dis. 5. Log file: It contains information about control file execution like, execution start time and end time, successful records count, bad records count, if there are any errors in the control file, those error messages will be available in segments, the extension of file .log. The Syntax of the control file is as follows: Load Data Infile ‘Data file Path’ Insert into table <Oracle Database Table Name> Fields terminated by ‘,’ or ’$’ ( Column1, Column2, Column3, , , , , ,, ); And save as .ctl file For execution Command for .ctl file. SQLLDER username/password@hoststring Control = <Control file Patch> Class Exercise

Connect to Scott Schema and create temporary table


Create table emp_details


empno Ename JDate Deptno Sale Comm Tax

Number(8), Varchar2(100), Date, Number(8), Number(8), Number(8), Number(8) );

Select * from emp_details

• •

Prepare data file and save in the local machine. Develop the control file like as follows and save it with extension .ctl Load Data Infile ‘C:\20\load\emp.txt’ Insert into table emp_details Fields terminated by ‘,’ ( Empno, Ename, JDate, Deptno, Sale, Comm, Tax ); Go to Command Prompt select following path o D:\Oracle\proddb\8.1.7\bin> Execute the control file with SQLLDR Command SQLLDER SCOTT/TIGER@PROD Control = C:\20\LOAD\EMP.CTL

• •

To find path to execute the SQLLDR command is HOST Command from SQL prompt which will shows the path where we can execute control file o Select * from v$parameter.

Control File INSERT - Table should be empty – New records will be inserted. APPEND – New records will be add for existing records TRUNCATE – It will delete existing records and inserts new records from the file. .csv file (Comma Separated Valu) If data in excel sheet we can save that file as .csv file. If any string contains commas we will enclosed this will in double quotation in the control file we will specify the following statement syntax


Fields Terminated by ‘ , ‘ optionally enclosed by ‘ ” ’ If one of the field is missing for the database column we can generate sequences and also we can use the some functions like to_char, NVL, Decode, Instr, Rtrim, Trim and so on Training Nullcols – Inserts NULL columns if no data is there, we can not use any DDL, DML or TCL command in control file. LOAD DATA Infile ‘C:\20\load\emp.txt.’ Truncate into Table emp_details Fields Terminated by ‘ , ‘ optionally enclosed ‘ “ ‘ Trailing Nullcols ( Empno ‘emp_seq.nextval’, Ename ‘upper(:ename)’, Jdate Sysdate, Deptno, Sal, Commn, Tax ) Fixed format control file exampled Sometimes data may found in fixed format - for example Empno - 5, Ename – 10, Jdate – 11, Deptno – 2, Sal – 5, Comm – 3, Tax -3 If data is in the fixed format the control file will be developed in different format LOAD DATA Infile ‘C:\20\LOAD\FIXED.TXT Truncate Into table emp_details ( Empno position(1:5), Ename position(6:15), Jdate position(16:26), Deptno position(27:28), Sal position(29:33), Commn position(34:36), Tax position(37:39))

In control file itself we can specify the data and at the time of insertion we specify the specify the condition and we can also specify the discard file pat in control file it self - for example LOAD DATA Infile * Discardfile ‘C:\emp_rejected.dis’ Truncate Into table emp_details When deptno=’20’ ( Empno position(1:5), Ename position(6:15),


Jdate Deptno Sal Commn Tax

position(16:26), position(27:28), position(29:33), position(34:36), position(37:39))

Begin Data Fsfsd fgdfdsf Fsfsfsf fdfdsfsd gsfsdfg gdgd

Along with the SQLLDR command we can also use the few commands like as bellow LOAD – Will be used to load the first ‘N’ records SQLLDER username/password@Hoststring Load=10 SKIP – TO skip the first ‘n’ records SQLLDER username/password@Hoststring skip=10 ROWS – It will be used to issue the commit after insert ’N’records for every 10 records internally auto commit will happen SQLLDER username/password@Hoststring rows=10

INIT.ORA file contains the default values for the commit point

Data Uplaoding in to two tables Create Table emp1 ( Empno Number(5), Ename Varchar2(30), Job Varchar2(30)); Create Table dept1( Deptno Number(2), Dname Varchar2(30)); Positions of the data in datafile Empno 5, Ename 10, Job1, Deptno2, dname 7 DECODE Statement to be used to Code the ‘A” for Analyst ‘M’ for Manager and Multiple data files can also be called in single control file Example control file Load data Infile ‘C:\20load\multiple.txt Truncate Into table emp1 (Empno Position(1:5), Ename Position(6:15), Job Position(16:16) “Decode (:Job ,‘A’, ‘Analyst’,’M’,”Manager’)”) Insert Into table dept1

Move the .ctl file in the Inventory top i.e. BIN Directory And register the control file with applications. Go to System Administrator and register with the applications and concurrent program and method should be SQL * Loader Data file pat can changed dynamically o Infile ‘&1’ o We muse use the ‘1` degit



We are allowed to submit only one parameter that should be data file path

SQL * Loader with Parameters At the time of defining concurrent programe select parameter butiton define the parameter specify the ‘&1’ in the control file so that what ever the values we have passed that will be replaced in the control file. Interview Questions 1. How to issue the commit in the control file a. By suing ROWS Command 2. What are the types loading we have a. Direct Method Load b. Conventional method load (Default) 3. How to upload the data in to multiple table at with time a. By using WHEN command 4. Can we have the data in Fixed format and how to upload a. Yes, we can have fixed format that time we will use POSITION keyword 5. What is the difference between Bad file and Discard file a. Both file contains rejected records – Bad file contains records which are rejected by SQL*Loader and Discard file contains which are rejected by Control file. 6. What are the SQL functions we can use in the control file a. TO_CAHR, TO_DATE, INSTER, SUBSTER, RTRIM, LTRIM, DECODE, NVL and so on. 7. can we use user defined functions a. NO We can’t user defined functions 8. If control file rejected more than 10 records error the I would like to stop the process how to do it a. We have a file called INIT.ORA file where we will set parent called maximum errors allowed and max auto commit other parameter also. 9. How to skip specific field data a. By using FILLER command – In this position column will not accept the data and it inserts the NULL values. For example ( Empno, Ename , JDate FILLER, Deptno);

SQL * Plus


1. Develop the SQL Program (.sql) 2. Move the file form local machine to server in to respective path a. CUST_TOP\11.5.0\SQL\ .sql 3. Create executable execution method as “SQL*PLUS” 4. Crate concurrent program and attach executable and parameters 5. Attach concurrent program to the request group 6. Attach request group to the responsibility 7. Attach responsibility to the user. 8.

Scheduling the Concurrent program We can submit the Concurrent program future date or date by using the schedule button in SRS window


1. As soon as possible: This is default option whenever we submit the request it will submit the as soon as possible 2. Once: It will submit the rest only once for future date. 3. Periodically: WE can specify the from_date and to_date to submit program periodically no of. Days months, hours, minutes and so on. 4. Specific Days: If we want submit concurrent program in the specific days we write select this option 5. Save this Schedule: This check box will be used to save the schedule and apply same schedule to other concurrent programs by selecting the button called ‘Apply save schedule’ NOTE: After schedule the Concurrent program we can also cancel by selecting the cancel button.

PROFILES Profile is one the changeable option it will change the way of application execution, when we crate user in oracle applications we will design the profile values for ever user by selecting any of this level. Profile levels User Responsibility Application Site

1. Site Level: Site is the lowest profile level when we install Oracle Applications by default values will be assigned at this level, site level values will be applicable for all the users. 2. Application Level: If we want to assign profile value to the specific application users then we will select this level specify the application name and assign the value, application level profile value will over write site level values. 3. Responsibility Level: We will select the responsibility name assign the profile value, this is applicable only for the users, who are having access to the specified responsibility. Responsibility will overwrite the both application and site level values. Most of the profile will setup at responsibility level because it will be creating responsibility for ever position in the organization we will also assign the profile values based on position. 4. User Level: We will select the user name and assign the profit value this is only for specific user which we have specified at will over write responsibility, application and site level values. Definition Application: It is collection of forms, reports and programs which are related for specific business functionality


Responsibility: It is also collection of forms, reports and programs which are related for specific position in the organization. Navigation Application Developer – Profile - press enter

Important Profiles: 1. GL Set of Books Name: It is one of the GL application profile, set of books is nothing but collection of currency, calendar, and chart of accounts. We will assign this profile values at responsibility level based on this currency and calendar and accounts will get change. 2. MO: Operating Unit: This will be used to setup user operating unit name which operating unit user is working, when ever user login to the system by using this profile. System will understand the user operating unit (Branch Name) 3. HR: Business Group: This profile will give the user business group which group user is working. 4. HR: User_Type: This profile will give the user employment type which user is Permanent, Contract or consultant will be identified.

Multi Org Multi Org is nothing but implementing multiple organization under single oracle APPS implementation. We will define the multi org levels like follows: Business Group Top level org where employee will be define

Set of Books


Currency, Calendar, Chart of accounts – Financial Entities

Legal Entity


Where company is going to create Income Tax Documents to Government

Operating Unit


Where Company will procure, sell, pay, receive, stock

Inventory Organization


Where company will store the product

Sub inventories

Stock Locations


Under the Inventory it will come


Business Group: It represents the highest level in the organization structure, it can be a major division or operating company or consolidated enterprises, Business Group secure human recourses information. Example: When we request list of employees assigned to the business group where organization is a part Set Of Books: It is a financial reporting entity it uses particular functional currency, chart of accounts and accounting calendar, Oracle General Ledger application secures this transaction information like, journal entries, balances, we will use the Set of Books to capture these financial information. Legal Entity: it is a legal company for which we prepare physical or tax reports and we will submit company flanking sheet to Government. Operating Unit: It is an organization where company is going to do the main business operations like sales, purchasing payments, receiving and son, it may be a sales office or


division or department, operating unit information will be secured by following applications like PO, AP, AR, OM, CM Inventory Organization: It is an organization for which we will track Inventory transactions and balances, Inventory Organization means warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing plants and sales offices, the following application secures information by Inventory organization Oracle Inventory Bills of Material Work in process Enginering Capacity MRP and so on

Again we will define Inventory Organization as 2 levels 1) sub Inventory 2) Stock location – inside of this location we will keep the items.

Advantages or Major functions

Data Secure: We can assign users to the particular organization when ever user logon to the application then we can get the data access, which is related to their organization Multiple Organizations Reporting: We can setup Oracle applications implementation to allow the reporting across operating units we can allow the reports either at SOB level or legal entities level or operating unit level We can sell the products from one legal entity and ship the products from another level entity – that time we can easily create financial transactions. We can receive the good from the suppliers in any Inventory organization. Example: A branch employee will create the PO then we can rece4ive the material in B branch Inventory organization but these two organization should be defined under same set of books. When employee creates internal requisitions in one organization thesewe can ship the materials from another organization with corrent inter company inventory.

Multi Org table contains multiples organization data. This table names are goint to end with _all and this table contains common column called org_id Whenever user login to the systems by using MO:OPERATING UNIT profile, systems will understand user operating unit code (ORG_ID) Multi Org views – These are created based on, multi org table having the where clause like “where org_id=client_info”. If we are using multi org views in the RICE components, we will get the data from the database which is related for the user organization. Ex: PO_HEADERS, PO_LINES, AP_INVOICES, AP_CHECKS, OE_ORDER_HEADERS CLIENT_INFO: It is one of the RDBMS variable, it contains user operating unit code (org_id) whenever user login to the application o Select * from hr_operating_units (you can get all the branch codes) To create Operating units navigation o HRMS Responsibility – Work Structures - Organization – Description In before report trigger we will write SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND SRWINIT’) – it will initialize the user profile values (MO:OPERATING UNIT)

Create 3 users, assign to them different branches by using MO:Operating Unit profile and develop the report, use the multi org tables and register it as concurrent program and submit from SRS window form 3 users we will get all the operating units data in the output instead of multi table, use multi org view. Submit request from SRS. It will display the output which is related for user organization. If we are not using the user exit (FND SRWINIT) system will not initialize user profile values including MO operating Unit profile that time, client_info variable values is null. In SQL & PL/SQL – We need to use API SQL> select count(*) from PO_HEADERS_ALL 2777 POs are created form multiple organizations


SQL> select count(*) from PO_HEADERS – output ‘0’ becoz system doesnot know the branch working for which branch SQL> Begin FND_CLIENT_INFO.SET_ORG_CONTEXT(204) END; SQL> select count(*) from PO_HEADERS - Now it is showing the 1645 Pos fro branch 204 Begin FND_CLIENT_INFO.SET_ORG_CONTEXT(FND_PROFILE.VALUE(‘ORG_ID’) END It will retrieve User ORG_ID value Table shows details about the Multi Org structure table Organization Name Table Profile Business Group HRFV_BUSINESS_GROUPS HR:Business Group ID Set Of Books GL_SET_OF_BOOKS GL:Set of Books Name Legal Entity HR_LEGAL_ENTITIES Operating Unit HR_OPERATING_UNITS MO:Operating Unit Inventory Organization SubInventory Stock Locations Items ORG_ORGANIZATION_ DEFINITIONS MTL_SECONDARY_ INVENTORIES MTL_ITEM_LOCATIONSQ MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS

While developing or customizing the RICE component we will be using Multiorg views. We are not supposed to use the Multi org tables. By suing the following select statement we can find whether multi org is implemented successfully or not o Select multi_org_flag, release name from fnd_product_groups Multi_org_flag Releasename Y 11.5.7 Y – Implemeted successfully (Business Group, I.E., Set of Books, operating Unit, Inventory organziaiton)


BUSINESS_GROUP_ID: This at Business group level we can find them common column in all the table, which are in HRMS tables like o PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F o PER_JOBS o PER_GRADES o PER_POSITIONS ORG_ID: It is at operating unit level it we will find this common column in all the table at operating unit level like o PO_REQUESITION_HEADERS_ALL o PO_HEADERS_ALL o PO_DISTRIBUTION_ALL NOTE: But PO receipts functionality will come at Inventory organization level. Because we are crating receipt means we are receiving the goods from supplier. We will be receiving the material at Inventories (stories, gowdans ) only. Example: RCV_SHIPMENT_HEADERS table is not having the _ALL it is not having ORG_ID column ORGANIZATION_ID: It is at Inventory Organization level we will find all the manufacturing tables column this ORGANIZATION_ID column including PO Receipts Tables o MTL_SYSTEM_ITESM_B o WIP_ENTITITES o BOM_RESOURCES o BOM_DEPARTMENT

PO_VENDORS is not having _ALL PO_VENDORS_SITES_ALL is having _ALL Supplier is global we can access from any organization Supplier site is organization specific and we create site based on the user ORG_ID sites will retrieved. FAQs 1. What is application hierarchy or Multi org flow? 2. What is Business Group? 3. What is legal entity and operating unit 4. What is meant by multi org table 5. What are module will come at operating unit level 6. Will PO Receipt will come tat Operating Unit level or Inventory Organization level? 7. What is difference between OR_ID and ORGANIZATION_ID? 8. Why there is no _ALL for PO_VENDORS table? 9. How to implement multi org in reports? 10. How to populate ORG_ID from SQL prompt? 11. What is meant by Client_info? 12. When user login in to the system how the system will identify user operating unit?


Flex Fields Flex Field is nothing but a normal field but it is a ore flexible in the application either to extend the form functionality or to capture the key information We have 2 types of flex fields in oracle applications 1. Descriptive Flex Fields , 2. Key Flex Fields 1. Descriptive Flex Fields: DFF will be used to capture extra information from the end user without changing form code and without altering database table a. We will use the attribute column while working with DFF b. We will find all the DFF in Application Developer Responsibility i. N – Flex Filed – Descriptive – Register c. To find DFF in form – PO Requisition Form d. Customization of DFF i. Open the form in application (PO, AP…) we will find the fields which are enclosed with [ ] it is nothing but a DFF we can enable this DFF by using Application Developer Responsibility ii. Find the DFF title from following navigation 1. Help Menu – Diagnostics – Examine and enter password as apps and Block name $Descriptive Flex field$ we will find the list of DFFs in the fields select Field: PO_REQ_HDR_DESCRIPTIVE_F4 we will find the DFF in the value fields Value: Requisition Header (Oracle Purchasing) iii. Copy the value go to Application Developer 1. N – Flex field – Descriptive – Segments and enter and press F11 enter the title Ctrl + F11 iv. Un check the checkbox called Freeze Flex field definition select segments button enter the column names select attribute column and value set and save the transactions. v. Check the check box called Freeze Flex Field Definition click on compile button internally system will submit concurrent program (Flex field view Generation) to compile flex field it will generate one flex field view to capture the data. vi. The view name will be database table name _DFV vii. Go to the form where DFF is attached, place the cursor, it will open DFF form enter the data save it go to backend query the records. Select Attribute3 Buyertype, Attribute9 Buyerlocaton, Attribute13 Last Date From PO_REQUISITION_HEADER_ALL Where segment1=’15467’ viii. Create the value set in system administrator; attach the value set at the time of creating DFF column name in the value set field. ix. We can make the DFF column is optional or mandatory by selecting required check box in the segments form.


x. Context Field: While creation of DFF we can define multiple structures based on the user selection we can change the DFF structure. While defining the context field we will enter context field values for every context value there will be a structure here we can use the entire attribute column from attribute 1 to 15. 1. NOTE: One we use the attributes in one structure we can use the same attributes in another structure, because user can enter only one structure details at a time. 2. NOTE: Once we enter the value in the context field it will be stored in the Database column called Attribute Category
Inventory Sub Inventory Item Location Stock Location Available Qty Item Details Item Quantity Reserved Qty Purchasable Item Item Attributes Inventory Item Customer Item Production Item

xi. Global Data Elements: While defining the context field we will enter the context field values based on the value we can change the DFF structure if we want to define any field globally we will select option called Global Data elements, select se4gments enter the details. 1. Once we use the attribute column in Global Data elements it will not be available for the context field values.

2. Key Flex Field : These will be used capture key information which is in the code language for every code there will be a specific meaning in the application we will find all the KFF s in the Application Developer Responsibility. Navigation – Flex field – Key – Register and enter we can find the structure in the segments form Navigation Flex Field – Key – Segments and press enter when we enter the data in KFF it will be stored in segments columns we will find segments column around 30 based on the requirement. Differences between DFF and KFF


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

DFF DFF will be used to capture EXTRA 1. Information Attribute columns will be used 2. We can register MAX DFF 3. DFF will be accept what ever Data we 4. enter WE have context field 5. DFF data will be stored in Attribute 6. Columns

KFF KFF will be used to capture KEY Information Segment columns will be used We have 29 built in KFF we are not suppose to create new KFF KFF we can define rules to capture valid data WE have no Context field DFF codes will be stored in segments KFF description will be stored in FND_FLEX_VALUES tables.

To find a table of DFF – go to the segment form of DFF System Last Query Value - Quary will get KFF_List.xls file contains all the important KFF to study Application KFF name Table Name Accounting Flexfield GL GL_CODE_COMBINATIONS Assets KFF FA FA_ASSET_KEYWORDS Category Flexfield FA FA_CATEGORIES_B Location Flexfield FA FA_LOCATIONS Sales Tax Location Flexfield AR AR_LOCATION_COMBINATIONS Territory Flexfield AR RA_TERRITORIES Item Catalogs INV MTL_ITEM_CATALOG_GROUPS Item Categories INV MTL_CATEGORIES_B Stock Locators INV MTL_ITEM_LOCATIONS System Items INV MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS_B

To Capture the Key Information We can query the Information at any level Data entry to the user will be very easy System will accept valid accounting transactions GL_CODE_COMBINATION – All Codes GLFV_CHARTS_OF_ACCOUNTS – Structure Details

Accounting Key Flex Field: • This is one of the built in KFF available in GL application to capture accounting transactions.


Accounting KFF is nothing but Chart of accounts in the set of books when ever we assign the profile (GL: Set of Books Name) to the user based on the this profile system will assign Accounting KFF to the User.

Structure Column • While defining the KFF we will find structure column field if it is null value then KFF has got only one structure, if there is a structure column that will find multiple structure, open the segments form query the records based on KFF title, we will find structure details • For Accounting KFF structure column is CHART_OF_ACCOUNTS_ID • And we will get all the structure details from this table – GL_CHARTS_OF_ACCOUNTS. • All the accounting KFF transaction will be stored in the data based table called GL_CODE_COMBINATIONS Developing the Reports on KFF - Process 1) Call the user ext from before report trigger SRW.USER_EXIT ( 'FND SRWINIT'); 2) Call another User Exit from After Report Trigger SRW.USER_EXIT ('FND SRWEXIT'); 3) Define the following parameters 1) P_CONC_REQUEST_ID 2) P_FLEXDATA 3) P_STRUCT_NUM segment1||'\n'||segment2||'\n'||segment3||'\n'||.......||'\n'||segment30

4) Call another User exit from before report trigger SRW.USER_EXIT ('FND FLEXSQL CODE NUM

= "GL#" = ":P_STRUCT_NUM"




5) Define the Query like follows SELECT &P_FLEXDATA FROM KFF Table WHERE KFF Structure Column = :P_STRUCT_NUM; 6) Define Formula Column and CALL another User Exit from formula column SRW.USER_EXIT ('FND FLEXIDVAL CODE = "GL#" NUM = ":P_STRUCT_NUM" APPL_SHORT_NAME = "SQLGL" DATA = "Column Name where the data is available" VALUE = "to get KFF Values we will give formula column Name" MODE = "SELECT" DISPLAY = "ALL");

Flex Fields Reports development P_FLEXDATA: It is one of the lexical parameter having the default value it is a contribution of all the segment columns, we will use this lexical parameter in the select statement to retrieve the data from database P_STRUCT_NUM: This is a bind variable will be used to capture KFF structure number FND FLEX SQL: It is one of the User Exit we will define in the before report trigger to retrieve KFF segments data FND FLEXIDVAL: This is another user exit will called from formula column to display the KFF data in the output 1) Call the user ext from before report trigger SRW.USER_EXIT ( 'FND SRWINIT'); 2) Call another User Exit from After Report Trigger SRW.USER_EXIT ('FND SRWEXIT'); 3) Define the following parameters 1) P_CONC_REQUEST_ID 2) P_FLEXDATA 3) P_STRUCT_NUM 4) Before Report Trigger function BeforeReport return boolean is L_NAME VARCHAR2(100); begin






= ":CF_DESC" = "SELECT" = "ALL" = "ALL"');

7) Go to layout model design the report and register with Oracle Applications and submit from the user SRS form SRW.REFERENCE( ) : It we are using bind variable in source column the user exit we will refer to get the latest values for variable and source column Changing the structure number dynamically: • KFF structure number is nothing but chat of accounts ID, if we know the user set of books name we can find out chart of Accounts ID. • Set of books name is one of the user profile by using FND profile API we can get from report triggers • Go to before report trigger declare the local variable write the following API o L_name varchar2 (100) o L_name:=fnd_profile.value(‘GL_SET_OFBKS_NAME’); • Write the following select statement to get the structure number based on the set of books name Select INTO From Where Chart_of_account_id :P-STRUCT_NUM GL_SET_OF_BOOKS name=L_name;

Descriptive Flex Field Form Development Process

• • • • • • •

Table should contain attribute column and also it should be registered Go to application developer open the DFF register form navigation Flex Field – Descriptive – Register and enter Create New DFF by giving database table name. Copy the DFF table go to segments form query based on table, select segments button, enter DFF structure details. Open the template.fmb select all the attribute column at the time of data block creation Define the field in the Canvas change the field property database items as "no"

Define the Package like follows. Package Specification: ---------------------PACKAGE DFF_PKG IS PROCEDURE DFF_PROC(EVENT VARCHAR2); END; Package Body: -------------




'WIP_ITEMS10', => 'DFF_TEXT', => 'WIP', => 'WIPDFF' );

• •

Call this Package from WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE Trigger o Packagename.Procedure name('WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE'); o DFF_PKG.DFF_PROC('WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE'); Call another API from WHEN-NEW-ITEM-ISNATCE Trigger o fnd_flex.event('WHEN-NEW-ITEM-INSTANCE'); o It will Populate the DFF in the Form.

Note: FNDSQF library will support for all the flex field APIS like FND_DESC_FLEX.DEFINE FND_FLEX.EVENT FND_KEY_FLEX Function Security:

• • • •

For single form creation of multiple functions at the time of creation function passing the parameter which will change the form functionality. Develop a form register in application developer at the time of creation function pass the parameter called QUERYONLY=”YES” Attach the functions to menu and menu to responsibility and responsibility to the user. NOTE: At the time of crating function select form tab pass the parameter in the field called parameter

Calling another form from the existing form. Form 6i feature APPS – Call_Form, New_form, Open_form FND_FUNCTION.EXECUTE( )

OPEN_FORM built-in Opens the indicated form. Use OPEN_FORM to create multiple-form applications, that is, applications that open more than one form at the same time.


NEW_FORM built-in Exits the current form and enters the indicated form. The calling form is terminated as the parent form. If the calling form had been called by a higher form, Form Builder keeps the higher call active and treats it as a call to the new form. Form Builder releases memory (such as database cursors) that the terminated form was using. Form Builder runs the new form with the same Runform options as the parent form. If the parent form was a called form, Form Builder runs the new form with the same options as the parent form.

CALL_FORM built-in Runs an indicated form while keeping the parent form active. Form Builder runs the called form with the same Runform preferences as the parent form. When the called form is exited Form Builder processing resumes in the calling form at the point from which you initiated the call to CALL_FORM.

1) Develop both forms and register in application. 2) Place the Button in first form 3) Write the following code in WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED Trigger. Fnd_FunCtion.execute ( function_name open_flag OTHER_PARAMS

=> 'Second from function Name', => 'Y' , => 'P1 = '||:PO_VENDORS.VENDOR_ID);

P1 is Second form parameter 4) Open the Second form and define the Parmaeter called P1 5) Go to PRE-QUERY trigger and write the following code to change the query dynamically. :PO_VENDOR_SITES_ALL.VENDOR_ID := :PARAMETER.P1; --:Blockname .fieldname := :PARAMETER.Parametername 6) Goto the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE Trigger at from level. write the following code: GO_BLOCK('PO_VENDOR_SITES_ALL'); EXECUTE_QUERY; Sub Menus Sub menu is nothing but is collection of function and menus we will create the submenus just like menus, then we will attach to main menu by using the field called submenu. Calling the SRS window from Menu

• •

Go to the function form in application developer (N) Application - funcatoin Create new function for the user form called Run Reports, copy user function name attach to menu.


Adding Multiple Request Groups to the Responsibility

• • •

Create Request Group in System Administrator Copy Request Group name application short name and Request group code. Go to application developer create function for the form called “Run Report” and pass the following parameters in the parameter field o REQUEST_GORUP_CODE = “20SUPPLIER_CODE” o REQUEST_GROUP_APPL_SHORT_NAME=”PO” o TITLE = “20SUPPLIERS”

Hide the menus and function at responsibility level (Menu Exclusions)

At the time of creating responsibility we will attach menu by default all the submenus and functions will be available if we want to hid we will go to Menu Exclusion tab in Responsibility form select type as function or menu and give the function name or menu name in the name field.

Forms Customization Two Ways 1) Download .fmb from au_top\11.5.0\Forms\resource\US 2) Custom.pll a. When_new_form_instance b. When-new-block-instance c. When-new-record-instance d. When-new-item-instance e. When-Validate-record f. Special g. Zoom If we want to customize standard oracle forms will going to use custom.pll by using this we can customize few events in the form. This custom.pll is available in the au_top – resource folder 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Hiding the fields Chane the promplt Change visual attributes Make field is mandatory Attaching the menu options.

Before going to customization the form should know following details • Form Name : • Block Name : • Field Name : • What Customization : • When we would like to do Data capture


• • • • •

Form Name : Help About Oracle Applications Block Name : Help Diagnostics – examine Minimum : Amount Hide the filed When form is opened (When-new-form-instance)

Forms Customization Steps: 1) Download the CUSTOM.pll from AU_TOP\11.5.0\Resource folder. 2) Open with Forms 6i. 3) Write the Following Code in the place of 'Real Code Starts Here' form_name block_name begin varchar2(30) := name_in('system.current_form'); varchar2(30) := name_in('system.cursor_block');


4) Compile the Library we can get .pll (Program link Library) Execute the Library we will get .plx (Program Link Executable) (File ->Administration->Compile File) 5) Transfer both .pll and .plx files into the Resource folder in the AU top. (Note: before going to copy into the server close the complete Application)

Zoom Trigger Zoom event will be used to call the another forms from Oracle standard forms, by default zoom will be disabled for the form, first we have to enable, the \we will go for execution.


Open the Custom.pll got the function call zoom available and creat the following code in the place of “Real Code Starts here” form_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.current_form'); block_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.cursor_block'); begin if (form_name = 'POXRQERQ' and block_name = 'PO_REQ_HDR') then return TRUE; else return FALSE; end if;

• •

Go to the event procedure and write the following code in the place of “Real Code Starts Here” form_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.current_form'); block_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.cursor_block'); Begin if (event_name = 'ZOOM') then if (form_name = 'POXRQERQ' and block_name = 'PO_REQ_HDR') then fnd_function.execute(function_name=>'PO_POXRQVRQ', open_flag => 'Y'); end if; end if; Ave the custom.pll and compile this execute the custom.pll Copy both .pll and .plx in to the resource folder (Close the applications before copying in to the respective top)

Special Trigger: - Total 45 are available. We will use the special trigger to attach the menu options to the forms.

FAQs: 1) What are the steps we will follow for the form development 2) What are the libraries are available in TEMPLETE.FMB? 3) How to register table and primary key? 4) Why do we need to register the table 5) How t o implement who columns? 6) How to attach a calendar? 7) How to call another form from the standard forms? 8) How to implement DFF in the forms? 9) What are the events we can use in custom.pll? 10) What is meant by zoom? 11) We can’t copy the CUSTOM.PLL in to the server when applications is opened? a. In oracle applications all the forms are developed by TEMPLETE.FMB including Navigator. So that, that time CUSTOM.PLL IS being used by the application we can not update the library. 12) When we are working in the project we are not able to close all the users application that time how to copy in to server.


a. We will be having the link file (crated by DBA), we will copy in to that path only we have to logout and login then we can find the customization effects. 13) How to generate .fmx and .plx in LINIX operating system a. In windows we will use CTRL + T b. In linix we will use F60GEN command F60GEN MODULE=TEST.FMB USERNAME/PASSWORD@HOST F60GEN MODULE=CUSTOM.PLL TYPE=LIBRARY USERNAME/PASSWORD@HOST 14) In which top we will execute this F60GEN command a. IN AU_TOP\11.5.0\FORMS\US

INTERFACES Interface is nothing but a program will be used to transfer the data from flat files to database table or from database table to flat files with validations. WE have two types of Interfaces like Inbound Interface Outbound Interface. Inbound Interface It will be used to upload the data from legacy system into Oracle Applications base table Note: Legacy system is nothing but other applications which is used by client like SAP, JAVA, Mainframe so on. Example: In implementation project we can implement forms and report so that users can enter the data after implementation but the previous data will be available in the legacy system we need to bring that data in to Oracle Applicatoins with validations. Usage: SQL*Loader, .txt, .ctl, .dis, .bad, .log

Outbound Interface It will be used to extract the data from Oracle Applications base tables in to flat files Example: Client is using to applications one is for financial and another one is for manufacturing, we have to transfer manufacture data in to financial applications, so that we can generate the Invoices in financial applications. Usage: UTL_FILE_PACKAGE UTL_FILE.FOPEN() - Crate / Open file UTL_FILE.PUT_LINE() - Transfer the data in to file UTL_FILE.FCLOSE() - Close file Exercise – OUTBOUND INTERFACE We can generate flat file only in specified directory - to find directory list Select * from V$PARAMETER Where NAME like ‘%UTL_% Or “INIT.ORA” file contains the information about active directory list.

Inbound interface will be used to upload the data from legacy system in to Oracle applications base tables. We will receive the flat file from the client then we will create staging table upload the data from flat file in to stage table. Develop the PL/SQL program to validate the data weather it is valid or not, if it is valid we will insert in to interface table, if it is not valid we will insert in to error table. Once the data is available in interface table submit the standard program from SRS window, and we will transfer the data from interface table to base tables. Note o o

Staging table is required because the flat file structure may or may not be compatibles with base table structure. Interface table is required to make the pre validation and populate dynamic records. PO AP AR OM
