Setting Up Globalization Flexfields for Custom Responsibilities

Setting Up Globalization Flexfields

In Release 10.7 10SC Production 16, globalization flexfields were added into the setup and transaction windows of many Oracle Applications products. These new flexfields are used to enable country-specific and regional features that were built as a part of Oracle Applications' continuing effort to increase worldwide functional depth.

Adopt these examples as your standard when you create custom responsibilities and menus that provide access to globalization flexfield functionality.

This chapter shows examples of how to create custom menus and responsibilities when you use regional or country-specific features, and also demonstrates how to set the required profile variables at the responsibility level. The examples show the setup for a new Greek Receivables responsibility.

The examples apply to both Forms-based applications and Oracle Applications Framework applications.

Creating New Menus

You must include the JG Global Flexfield enabled flag form function in your Oracle Financials for Europe menu hierarchy to enable globalization flexfield features.

This table describes sample information to enter in the Menus window for a new Greek Receivables responsibility. You can add the JG Global Flexfield enabled flag form function, however, to any menu where you require globalization flexfields enabled.

Menu: JE_GR_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI

Seq Navigator Prompt Submenu Function Description
1 Receivable Localization JG_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI   Shared Receivables Localizations menu
2 Customer Turnover   Customer Turnover Exclusion Customer Turnover Data Exclusion Report
4 Other FND_OTHER 4.0   Other
10     JG Global Flexfield enabled  
11 Standard AR_NAVIGATE_GUI    

Note: You do not have to include the JG Global Flexfield enabled flag form function in the top menus for Oracle Financials for the Americas and Oracle Financials for Asia/Pacific, as the form function is already defined for these menus.

Creating New Responsibilities

For each custom responsibility that uses windows with country-specific or regional features, ensure that the application is set to your regional application.

This table describes sample information to enter in the Responsibilities window for the Greek Receivables responsibility.

Responsibility: Greek AR Localizations

Field Value
Responsibility Name Greek AR Localizations
Application European Localizations
Responsibility Key GREEK_AR_LOCALIZATIO-700221662
Description Greek AR Localizations
Available From Oracle Applications
Data Group Name Standard
Data Group Application European Localizations
Menu JE_GR_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI
Request Group Name Greek AR Reports
Request Group Application European Localizations

Setting Profile Options

For each custom responsibility that uses windows with country-specific or regional features, and that belongs to a non-Multi-Org product (such as Assets or General Ledger), you must set the JG: Application, JG: Product, and JG: Territory profile options.

Note: You do not need to set these profile options for Multi-Org products, such as Payables and Receivables. Multi-Org products make use of the Organization field.

JG: Application

JG: Application is used to determine which Oracle Applications product the responsibility is associated with. The list of values for this profile option consists of a complete list of Oracle Applications products.

For the Greek Receivables responsibility example, the Greek AR Localization responsibility is associated with Oracle Receivables.

JG: Territory

JG: Territory is used to determine which country the responsibility is associated with. The list of values for this profile option consists of a list of countries.

For the Greek Receivables responsibility example, the Greek AR Localization responsibility is associated with Greece.

JG: Product

JG: Product is used to determine which Global Financials product the responsibility is associated with. The list of values for this profile option consists of a list of Global Financials products.

For the Greek Receivables responsibility example, the Greek AR Localization responsibility is associated with European Localizations.

Using Globalization Flexfields

Oracle Global Financials use globalization flexfields to enter country-specific information into core windows.

To display globalization flexfields:

  1. Select Show Field in the Folders menu.

  2. Select ( ) from the list of fields.

    Oracle Financials displays the globalization flexfield window and adds the globalization flexfield column, labeled with ( ), to the core window.

    Once the globalization flexfield column is added to the core window, you can access the globalization flexfield window at any time by clicking in the column.
