|Oracle Financials Country-Specific Installation Supplement|
Part Number E13663-03
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.
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.
|1||Receivable Localization||JG_AR_NAVIGATE_GUI||Shared Receivables Localizations menu|
|2||Customer Turnover||Customer Turnover Exclusion||Customer Turnover Data Exclusion Report|
|10||JG Global Flexfield enabled|
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.
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 Name||Greek AR Localizations|
|Description||Greek AR Localizations|
|Available From||Oracle Applications|
|Data Group Name||Standard|
|Data Group Application||European Localizations|
|Request Group Name||Greek AR Reports|
|Request Group Application||European Localizations|
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 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 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 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.
Oracle Global Financials use globalization flexfields to enter country-specific information into core windows.
To display globalization flexfields:
Select Show Field in the Folders menu.
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.
