For each segment, you can define its prompt, the type of data it can contain, and the values a user can enter. You can provide a list or range of valid values. You also control the size and display characteristics of each segment and the order in which the segments appear.
You can define two types of descriptive flexfield segments:
Attention: Some descriptive flexfields appear in more than one window. For example, the Additional Evaluation Details flexfield appears in the Job Evaluation window and the Position Evaluation window.
Check all of the windows that use a descriptive flexfield before you define any of the segments. This is especially important if you intend to make the flexfield context sensitive to another field. You must ensure that the reference field is present in all of the windows that use the flexfield.
Refer to Table A - 1 for a full list of descriptive flexfields in Oracle HRMS.
Note: The process can only create database items for global segments. It does not create database items for context-sensitive segments.
