Defining Descriptive Flexfield Structures


   To define a descriptive flexfield:

The default value for this field is No.

Warning: Do not modify a frozen flexfield definition if existing data could be invalidated. An alteration of the flexfield structure can create data inconsistencies.

Warning: Some Oracle Applications tables store the segment separator as part of your flexfield values. Changing your separator once you have data in such tables may invalidate that data and cause application errors.

Suggestion: You should specify No only if the context field value derives from a reference field or a default value that you specify using this zone. If you do derive your context field value from a reference field, however, we recommend that you do not allow your user to override that value.
