Oracle Financials for India

This chapter covers the following topics:

Replacement of the Descriptive-Flexfield-Based Approach

In the earlier releases, Oracle Financials for India used the following Descriptive Flexfields (DFFs):

In Release 12, these DFFs have been replaced with alternate approaches.

Indian customers can leverage the DFF facility provided by E-Business suite. At the same time, the customers can use the enhanced Oracle Financials for India features.

There are no data migration assumptions that have been made. Customers, however, may have added their own attributes to the contexts used by Oracle Financials for India. These attributes will not be migrated by Oracle Financials for India. Customers should have a separate plan to migrate data related to these additional attributes.

This table illustrates how data is migrated in case of India Items DFF:
