What are Steps for Report Development in Apps?

What are Steps for Report Development in Apps?

Steps for Report Development....

1. Develop the report as per client requirement using the Report-6i tool.

2. Move the report (.rdf) file from local machine to respective path in the server. If client have the CUST_TOP then move into Cust_Top else move it to the related Standard Top.Custom Top - CUST_TOP/ 11.5.0/ Report/ US/ .rdf Standard Top - PO_TOP/ 11.5.0/ Report/ US/ .rdf (For PO report)

3. Create “Executable” for that report (After log on to Oracle Applications and Select “System Administrator” responsibility)

4. Create “Concurrent Program” and attach Executable to Conc. Prgm. and define Parameters and Incompatibles if any.Concurrent Program: It is an instance of the executable file along with parameters & incompatible.

5. Create “Request Group” and attach Conc. Prgm. to Request Group.Request Group is nothing but a collection of Conc. Prgms.

6. Create “Responsibility” and attach the Request Group to Responsibility.

7. Create “User” attach Responsibility to User”
             so that the user can run this Conc. Prgm. form the “SRS Window” (Standard Request Submission).

Note: All the Conc. Prgms. should run from the SRS window (Even if we run from Back-End)By default the user has the rights of System Administrator or Application Developer responsibilities

Every form in Oracle Applications contains 3-Types of Fields.
    1. Yellow color – Mandatory2. Green Color – Read-Only3. White Color – Optional

How to Create New User in Oracle Apps?
User Creation: Open IE and type path of Oracle Application in address bar enter User Name and Password

User Name: OPERATIONS  Password: WELCOME

Select System Administrator Responsibility
Select Security / User / Define  Give the required information and Save.
 Switch the user to newly created  User.
 Note: When we create any User, the User stored at FND_USER.

How we can find the Table names of Apps Screen?
We can find through Help => Record-History => FND_USER

How to find Column Name from front end Apps Screen :
To find all column names: Help => Diagnostics => Examine

What is WHO Columns and How many WHO Columns in Oracle Apps?
Ans : 4 types of who columns for each table in Oracle Applications
Created By  Creation Date  Updated By  Updated Date

What is Multi Org?

Q. What is Multi Org Architecture?
A. The Multiorg Architecture is meant to allow multiple companies
or subsidiaries to store their records within a single database.
The multiple Organization architecture allows this by partitioning data
through views in the APPS schema. Multiorg also allows you to maintain
multiple sets of books. Implementation of multiorg generally includes
defining more than one Business Group.

Q. How can I know if I am using Multi Org?
A. Run the SQL statement:
select multi_org_flag
from fnd_product_groups;
The result 'Y' means your database is setup for multiorg.

Q. What are the relationships I can define in a multi org environment?
A. You define the relationships among inventory organizations,
operating units, legal entities, Business Groups, and sets of books to
create a multilevel company structure:
. Business Groups separate major segments of a business. Each can have
it's own set of books. Each Group will also have a structure of other
organizations classifications assigned to it.
· Legal Entities post to a Set of Books
· Operating Units are part of a Legal Entity
· Inventory Organizations are part of an Operating Unit
· Inventory Organizations define and maintain items used by other
manufacturing modules (Order Entry, Purchasing, MRP, etc.). They also
collect and pass data to the Financials modules.

Q. I want to Setup Additional Organizations, do I have to setup Multiorg?
A. No, you do not need to setup multiorg. You do not have to be
multi-org to have multiple organizations only if you intend to have multiple
sets of books.

Q. Is there any documentation on how to setup an organization?
A. · Refer to "Oracle Manufacturing Implementation Manual" part#A50765.
· Refer to "Multiple Organizations in Oracle Applications"
part#A58478 for Release 11 and part#50771 for Release 10.
· Also refer to note 76440.1 for Organization setup steps.

Q. When my organization hierarchy changes, can I move an organization from
one set of books or legal entity to another?
A. No, you should not try to move an organization from one set of books
or legal entity to another because your data may not be valid for the
new set of books or legal entity. Instead, you should disable the old
organization and create a new organization for the appropriate set of
books or legal entity. The new organization will contain your new data,
and the disabled organization will act as an "old" or "history" entity
that stores past transactions.

Q. How can I setup a child org to be its own costing organization?
A. Steps:
· Change the attribute control for "default category set" to organization level
· Change the attribute control for "costing enabled" to organization level
· Change the attribute control for "inventory asset value" to organization control
Then you can make a child organization it's own costing organization by
entering the organization name in the column labeled "Costing Organization"

Q. How can I define organization restriction?
A. Use the Organization Access form (INVSDORA) to restrict the list of organizations
displayed for each responsibility level.
Refer to Oracle Inventory User's Guide for steps and important notes.
*WARNING* If you populate any rows in this form, you MUST populate a row for
EACH responsibility that you wish to have access to that Organization.

Q. What responsibility do I need to use to setup organization?
A. Use the General Ledger responsibility to define the Set of Books
Use the Inventory Responsibility to define Organizations and other related
information such as Inventory Key Flexfields, Locations, Workday calendar,
other Organization Classifications, and other inventory information.

Q. What are the main profile options relating to Organization setup and
what are they used for?
A. · HR:User Type = HR User
This is necessary to allow the Inventory responsibility to complete
the organization setup. Setting the profile to a value of 'User' as
opposed to 'Payroll & User' will restrict the Inventory user from
accessing any Payroll information if Oracle Payroll is installed.
· HR: Business Group = {the users Business Group name}
This points the responsibility to the appropriate Business Group.
When multiple Business Groups are defined, you must associate
each responsibility with one and only one Business Group.
A responsibility can not see organization data from more than
one Business Group.
· MO: Operating Unit = {the users Operating Unit name}
Used primarily in a multiorg environment.
This points the responsibility to the appropriate Operating Unit.
Set the site level to the desired default operating unit.
If there is more than 1 Operating Unit Defined,
this profile option must be set at the responsibility level
for each responsibility.

Which are Concurrent Executables in Oracle Apps? How many Types of Concurrent Programs?

There are 11 types of executables

1. Reports - .rdf

2. SQL * Plus - .SQL

3. PL/SQL Procedures - .pkb / .pks

4. SQL * Loader file - .ctl

5. Java Structured Procedure - .java / .class

6. Host(UNIX) - .sb

7. Spawned

8. Immediate

9. Java Concurrent Program

10. Request set stage Function

11. Multi-Language Function.

Note: Once moving are programs to Oracle Applications they will be convert to “CONCURRENT PROGRAM”.

Concurrent Process: Simultaneously executes program running in the background with online operations to fully utilize the hardware capacity.

Concurrent Program: Can write a program that runs as a concurrent process. Use concurrent program for long running, data-intensive tasks.

Major features: On-line requests
Automatic scheduling
Concurrent processing
Online request review
Concurrent manager
Simultaneous queuing

On-line Request: You and end-user can submit requests from forms to start any concurrent program.

Automatic Scheduling: Oracle Application Object Library automatically schedules requests based on when they were submitted, their priority, and their compatibility with programs those are already running.

Concurrent Manager: Cocurrent Managers are components of concurrent processing that monitors and run, time-consuming, non-interactive tasks without tying up your terminal.

Concurrent manager processes requests and does the work in the background, giving the ability to run multiple tasks simultaneously.

Internal Concurrent Manager starts up, verifies the status of, resets, and shuts down the individual managers.

Simultaneous Queuing: It lets requests wait in many queues at once to ensure that the first available concurrent manager starts the request.

Concurrent Program Executable: Links an execution file and the method used to execute it with defined concurrent program. This mathod may be a program written in standard language, a reporting tool, or an operating system language.

A Concurrent program execution file is an operating system file or database stored procedure.

Concurrent Program Definition: A concurrent program is an instance of an execution file, along with parameter definitions and incompatibilities. Concurrent programs use concurrent program executables to locate the correct execution file.

Concurrent Program written in: Oracle reports, PL/SQL package procedures, SQL *Loader, SQL *Plus, Host script.

Parent request: A parent request is a concurrent request that submits another concurrent request.

Child request: A child request is a concurrent request submitted by another concurrent request.

Concurrent Manager: Concurrent Managers are components of Concurrent Processing that monitor and run, time-consuming,non-interactive tasks without tying up terminal.

Whenever request submits to run a task, a concurrent manager processes that request and does the work in background, giving the ability to run multiple tasks simultaneously.
