Creating User-Defined Text

Each self-service classic or fluid page has an area for additional explanatory text. The text resides in the message catalog. The system displays the message number to help you determine the text to include on a page. If you do not want a message on a particular page, you can delete the text in the message catalog or delete the message entirely. However, Oracle suggests that you delete only the text, not the reference number, so that you can add text as needed in the future.

You might add user-defined text to:

  • Explain why disbursed awards cannot be updated.

  • Explain why custom split awards cannot be updated.

  • Explain why subsidized and unsubsidized loans have automatic treatment.

  • Explain why loans in transit cannot be updated.

  • Provide general rules of navigation.

  • Provide specific information, such as instructing students not to increase awards.

Message numbers 500 and greater for Message Set 14409 are designated as user-definable. Oracle delivers some message numbers with defined message text and explanation as examples.

To define custom text for fluid interfaces, use the following message numbers in Message Set 14409.
