FLEX FIELD

What is the difference between key flexfield and Descriptive flexfield?

Key Flexfield is used to describe unique identifiers that will have a better meaning than using number IDs. e.g a part number, a cost centre etc
Desc Flex is used to just capture extra information.
Key Flexfields have qualifiers whereas Desc Flexfields do not.
Desc Flexfields can have context sensitive segments while Key flexfields cannot.
And one more differenct that KFF displays like text item but DFF displays like [ ] .

Which procedure should be called to enable a DFF in a form?
FND_DESCR_FLEX.DEFINE
(BLOCK                                 => 'BLOCK_NAME'
                ,FIELD                                    => 'FORM_FIELD_NAME'
               ,APPL_SHORT_NAME      => 'APP_NAME'
               ,DESC_FLEX_NAME         => 'DFF_NAME'
               );

In Brief,
We need to follow the following steps in your form:
a) Create a displayed field to hold your concatenated segment values (the [ ] field).
b) Create fields (normally hidden) for each of the flexfield columns in your table (the
      one used for your flex).
c) In the form-level WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE,
call FND_DESCR_FLEX.DEFINE,
setting BLOCK parameter to the name of the block containing your [ ] field,
the FIELD parameter to the name of your [ ] field,
the APPL_SHORT_NAME parameter to the short name of your application and the DESC_FLEX_NAME parameter to the name of your descriptive flex.

In the form-level WHEN-NEW-ITEM-INSTANCE,
WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM,
PRE-INSERT,
PRE-UPDATE,
POST-QUERY and
PRE-QUERY triggers place a call to FND_FLEX.EVENT as follows:
         FND_FLEX.EVENT ( 'TRIGGER_NAME');
where TRIGGER_NAME is the name of the trigger,
e.g. in the PRE-QUERY trigger .... FND_FLEX.EVENT('PRE-QUERY');
Which procedure should be used to make the DFF read only at run time?
FND_DESCR_FLEX.UPDATE_DEFINITION()

What is the difference between flexfield qualifier and segment qualifier?
Flexfiled qualifier identifies segement in a flexfield and segment qualifier identifies value in a segment.
There are four types of flexfiled qualifier
1)     Balancing segment qualifier
2)     cost center
3)     natural account and
4)     intercompnay
segemtn qualifier :-
1)     allow budgeting
2)     allow posting
3)     account type
4)     contral account and
5)     reconciliation flag

What are the components of DFF (like structure, segment)?
Howmany Key flexfiels are there in Inventory?
What is Value Set?
Value Sets define and store the valid items of data, which may be entered into a field. Key Flexfields, Descriptive Flexfields and many standard fields use Value Sets. Oracle already comes with hundreds of Value Sets. We define additional Value Sets to support our own user-defined Key and Descriptive Flexfields (although we may use any existing standard Value Sets if they suit our purpose). In defining a new Value Set, we are defining the physical format of valid data, which can reside in that Value Set. Data in a Value Set can be of several types: 
  •  Independently loaded into a Value Set (through a standard form). 
  •  Resident in a table (to which we direct the Value Set definition). 
  •  There could be No Validation (any data can go into the field, but still subject to the formatting rules.) 
  •  Dependent on the value of data in a preceding Independent segment (loaded through a standard form). 
Ex: For Supplies & Accessories CC in ATP, we define GEMS_GPO_ASSIGN_SET value set for the assignment set associated with that OU.

Introduction:
DataLoad is powerful tool used by non-technical and technical users alike to load data and configuration in to ERP, CRM and operational systems such as Oracle E-Business Suite. These help pages are the primary source of information about DataLoad and how to use it. Follow the section links above and the menu links on the left to find more information about using DataLoad.
The latest version has many additional features upgraded to the earlier version
  • Sophisticated Load Control
  • Browser Control: Loads data into browser based applications too
  • Scripting: Now scripting language also given as feature to control the data using PHP codes (but you have to buy the professional version for this)
  • Data Validation: This feature will help people more who are going to deal with complex set of data and where validation is more important.
  • Header and Footer Grid: New Header and Footer grids enable one-off Macro load activities at the start and end of loads
  • Macro Recorder: Records and encodes keystrokes and mouse clicks, making it easier to create new Macro loads

Disadvantage:
  • Not interactive
  • During the Dataload process, you canot do anything in your machine
  • No log files generated
  • If system works slower than the mentioned delays then, it will not throw any error and dataload will continue. So there might be chance, dataload will be wrong or wrong data will be loaded in -wrong fields. So need to monitor the process.

Note: One important feature which we need to use as per the application speed is Delay. You might have realized, sometimes after entering data in Oracle application when you hit TAB or down key or up key as per your requirement, it takes bit time to process and then the cursor moves to the next field. Exactly the same thing we need to define in the dataload too. Because the dataload application will execute all command and data as mentioned in the data sheet without any time gap. So suppose your application need 0.5 second to process after hitting TAB but in dataload , its 0 second, then what will happen, data load will copy the data of the field and try to paste and take the data from the next field and try to execute in the window but as your application takes bit time to execute the commands, data canot be loaded properly. So to avoid this situation, dataload provides the option of giving manual delay times.
Here you can mention the delays.
Navigation is
Tools à Delays

Steps to Execute Dataload:

  1. Select the command group from the command group drop down
  2. Enter the data along with commands as per your need in the Main Load  data window
  3. Mention the Delays
  4. Select the window where you need to upload the data in the Window drop down
  5. Select the data from where to where you need to upload
  6. Then Hit the Dataload button or from tools select Start Dataload

We will demonstrate a simple use of this tool

Creating 3 locators in a an organization subinventory
Requirement to load data is
Locator, Description, Type, Status, Subinventory
Field Types in oracle are
Locator: Text validated in LOV
Description: Text
Type: Value from Drop down
Status:  Text Validated in LOV
Subinventory: Text Validated in LOV
Dataload data window

Follow the steps as mentioned above after preparation of the dataload


Set the delays
Then Hit Start Load button 

After data load

Now your data load is success.
