<pre>order by 2

6] Identifying all PO’s which does not have any PR’s
>>LIST ALL PURCHASE REQUISITION WITHOUT A PURCHASE ORDER THAT MEANS A PR HAS NOT BEEN AUTOCREATED TO PO. 1]

 

 select prh.segment1 "PR NUM", trunc(prh.creation_date) "CREATED ON", trunc(prl.creation_date) "Line Creation Date" , prl.line_num "Seq #", msi.segment1 "Item Num", prl.item_description "Description", prl.quantity "Qty", trunc(prl.need_by_date) "Required By", ppf1.full_name "REQUESTOR", ppf2.agent_name "BUYER" from po.po_requisition_headers_all prh, po.po_requisition_lines_all prl, apps.per_people_f ppf1, (select distinct agent_id,agent_name from apps.po_agents_v ) ppf2, po.po_req_distributions_all prd, inv.mtl_system_items_b msi, po.po_line_locations_all pll, po.po_lines_all pl, po.po_headers_all ph WHERE prh.requisition_header_id = prl.requisition_header_id and prl.requisition_line_id = prd.requisition_line_id and ppf1.person_id = prh.preparer_id and prh.creation_date between ppf1.effective_start_date and ppf1.effective_end_date and ppf2.agent_id(+) = msi.buyer_id and msi.inventory_item_id = prl.item_id and msi.organization_id = prl.destination_organization_id and pll.line_location_id(+) = prl.line_location_id and pll.po_header_id = ph.po_header_id(+) AND PLL.PO_LINE_ID = PL.PO_LINE_ID(+) AND PRH.AUTHORIZATION_STATUS = 'APPROVED' AND PLL.LINE_LOCATION_ID IS NULL AND PRL.CLOSED_CODE IS NULL AND NVL(PRL.CANCEL_FLAG,'N') <> 'Y' ORDER BY 1,2

>>Here is link:
PO_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL =>PO_HEADER_ID, REQ_DISTRIBUTION_IDPO_HEADERS_ALL=>PO_HEADER_ID, SEGMENT1PO_REQ_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL =>DISTRIBUTION_ID, REQUISITION_LINE_IDPO_REQUISITION_LINES_ALL =>REQUISITION_LINE_ID)PO_REQUISITION_HEADERS_ALL =>REQUISITION_HEADER_ID, REQUISITION_LINE_ID, SEGMENT1
What you have to make a join on PO_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL (REQ_DISTRIBUTION_ID) and PO_REQ_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL (DISTRIBUTION_ID) to see if there is a PO for the req.
–You need to find table which hold PO Approval path…
These two table keeps the data:
PO_APPROVAL_LIST_HEADERS
PO_APPROVAL_LIST_LINES
8] List all the PO’s with there approval ,invoice and Payment Details
>>LIST AND PO WITH THERE APPROVAL , INVOICE AND PAYMENT DETAILS 1]

<pre>and d.type_lookup_code != 'BLANKET'

10] To know the link to GL_JE_LINES table for purchasing accrual and budgetary control actions..
The budgetary (encumbrance) and accrual actions in the purchasing module generate records that will be imported into GL for the corresponding accrual and budgetary journals.
The following reference fields are used to capture and keep PO information in the GL_JE_LINES table.
These reference fields are populated when the Journal source (JE_SOURCE in GL_JE_HEADERS) isPurchasing.
Budgetary Records from PO (These include reservations, reversals and cancellations):
REFERENCE_1- Source (PO or REQ)
REFERENCE_2- PO Header ID or Requisition Header ID (from po_headers_all.po_header_id orpo_requisition_headers_all.requisition_header_id)
REFERENCE_3- Distribution ID (from po_distributions_all.po_distribution_id orpo_req_distributions_all.distribution_id)
REFERENCE_4- Purchase Order or Requisition number (from po_headers_all.segment1 orpo_requisition_headers_all.segment1)
REFERENCE_5- (Autocreated Purchase Orders only) Backing requisition number (from po_requisition_headers_all.segment1)
Accrual Records from PO:
REFERENCE_1- Source (PO)
REFERENCE_2- PO Header ID (from po_headers_all.po_header_id)
REFERENCE_3- Distribution ID (from po_distributions_all.po_distribution_id
REFERENCE_4- Purchase Order number (from po_headers_all.segment1)
REFERENCE_5- (ON LINE ACCRUALS ONLY) Receiving Transaction ID (from rcv_receiving_sub_ledger.rcv_transaction_id)
Take a note for Period end accruals, the REFERENCE_5 column is not used.
11] List all open PO’S

 

select h.segment1 "PO NUM", h.authorization_status "STATUS", l.line_num "SEQ NUM", ll.line_location_id, d.po_distribution_id , h.type_lookup_code "TYPE" from po.po_headers_all h, po.po_lines_all l, po.po_line_locations_all ll, po.po_distributions_all d where h.po_header_id = l.po_header_id and ll.po_line_id = l.po_Line_id and ll.line_location_id = d.line_location_id and h.closed_date is null
and h.type_lookup_code not in ('QUOTATION')

12] There are different authorization_status can a requisition have.
Approved
Cancelled
In Process
Incomplete
Pre-Approved
Rejected
and you should note: When we finally close the requisition from Requisition Summary form the authorization_status of the requisition does not change. Instead it’s closed_code becomes ‘FINALLY CLOSED’.
13] A standard Quotations one that you can tie back to a PO.Navigate to RFQ -> Auto create -> enter a PO and reference it back.
14] To debug for a PO , where should I start.
Thats is possible, your PO get stuck somewhere, so what you have to do is to analyze which stage it stucked.Get po_header_id first and run each query and then analyze the data.For better understanding this is splited into 5 major stages.
Stage 1: PO Creation :
PO_HEADERS_ALL
select po_header_id from po_headers_all where segment1 =;
select * from po_headers_all where po_header_id =;
po_lines_all
select * from po_lines_all where po_header_id =;
po_line_locations_all
select * from po_line_locations_all where po_header_id =;
po_distributions_all
select * from po_distributions_all where po_header_id =;
po_releases_all
SELECT * FROM po_releases_all WHERE po_header_id =;
Stage 2: Once PO is received data is moved to respective receving tables and inventory tables
RCV_SHIPMENT_HEADERS
select * from rcv_shipment_headers where shipment_header_id in(select shipment_header_id from rcv_shipment_lineswhere po_header_id =);
RCV_SHIPMENT_LINES
select * from rcv_shipment_lines where po_header_id =;
RCV_TRANSACTIONS
select * from rcv_transactions where po_header_id =;
RCV_ACCOUNTING_EVENTS
SELECT * FROM rcv_Accounting_Events WHERE rcv_transaction_id IN(select transaction_id from rcv_transactionswhere po_header_id =);
RCV_RECEIVING_SUB_LEDGER
select * from rcv_receiving_sub_ledger where rcv_transaction_id in (select transaction_id from rcv_transactions where po_header_id =);
RCV_SUB_LEDGER_DETAILS
select * from rcv_sub_ledger_detailswhere rcv_transaction_id in (select transaction_id from rcv_transactions where po_header_id =);
MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS
select * from mtl_material_transactions where transaction_source_id =;
MTL_TRANSACTION_ACCOUNTS
select * from mtl_transaction_accounts where transaction_id in ( select transaction_id from mtl_material_transactions where transaction_source_id = =);
Stage 3: Invoicing details
AP_INVOICE_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL
select * from ap_invoice_distributions_all where po_distribution_id in ( select po_distribution_id from po_distributions_all where po_header_id =);
AP_INVOICES_ALL
select * from ap_invoices_all where invoice_id in(select invoice_id from ap_invoice_distributions_all where po_distribution_id in( select po_distribution_id from po_distributions_all where po_header_id =));
Stage 4 : Many Time there is tie up with Project related PO
PA_EXPENDITURE_ITEMS_ALL
select * from pa_expenditure_items_all peia where peia.orig_transaction_reference in( select to_char(transaction_id) from mtl_material_transactionswhere transaction_source_id = );
Stage 5 : General Ledger
Prompt 17. GL_BC_PACKETS ..This is for encumbrances
SELECT * FROM gl_bc_packets WHERE reference2 IN (’‘);
GL_INTERFACE
SELECT *FROM GL_INTERFACE GLIWHERE user_je_source_name =’Purchasing’AND gl_sl_link_table =’RSL’AND reference21=’PO’AND EXISTS( SELECT 1FROM rcv_receiving_sub_ledger RRSLWHERE GLI.reference22 =RRSL.reference2AND GLI.reference23 =RRSL.reference3AND GLI.reference24 =RRSL.reference4AND RRSL.rcv_transaction_id in(select transaction_id from rcv_transactionswhere po_header_id ));
GL_IMPORT_REFERENCES

SELECT *FROM gl_import_references GLIRWHERE reference_1=’PO’AND gl_sl_link_table =’RSL’AND EXISTS( SELECT 1FROM rcv_receiving_sub_ledger RRSLWHERE GLIR.reference_2 =RRSL.reference2AND GLIR.reference_3 =RRSL.reference3AND GLIR.reference_4 =RRSL.reference4AND RRSL.rcv_transaction_id in(select transaction_id from rcv_transactions where po_header_id =))

 

Oracle OAF Personalization – Self Service – Migration – Export/Import


After spending time personalizing and testing framework pages in a Development instance, you may wish to automate the transfer of these changes to another instance, rather than manually re-doing them all again.

This objective can be achieved by exporting the personalizations from the Development instance, then importing them to a different instance or instances

You can either use the GUI interface in “Functional Administrator”  (Personalization tab) to transfer personalizations, or can invoke the XMLImporter/XMLExporter commands directly from the command line

This note provides detailed steps how to transfer personalizations from one instance to others using the XMLImporter/XMLExporter tool, this way you can automate it also using shell script

1. Get Document Name. —Go to the page you want to copy the personalization from and click the “about this Page” link at the bottom of the page. You will see the page name with full path which starts with /oracle/apps/<prod>.

2. Get the Personalization Document info — Run the following command at SQLPlus as APPS user

<br /><br />SQL&gt; set serveroutput on<br />SQL&gt; exec jdr_utils.listCustomizations('&amp;lt;full document name from step 1&amp;gt;')<br />

3. Use XMLExporter to export personalization document

<br />java oracle.jrad.tools.xml.importer.XMLImporter \<br />\<br />-username "" -password ""  \<br />-dbconnection "(description=(address_list=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=)(port=)))(connect_data=(sid=)))"<br />-rootdir "" \<br />-rootPackage "/oracle/apps/"<br />

4. Use XMLImporter to import personalization document

java oracle.jrad.tools.xml.importer.XMLImporter \
\
-username "" -password ""  \
-dbconnection "(description=(address_list=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=)(port=)))(connect_data=(sid=)))"
-rootdir "" \
-rootPackage "/oracle/apps/"

Example

Here is a step-by-step guide showing how to use XMLImporter/XMLExporter to transfer a SITE level personalization for the PreferencesPG page ($FND_TOP/mds/preferences/webui/PreferencesPG.xml)

1. List the personalization document to be exported

SQL> set serveroutput on
SQL> exec jdr_utils.listcustomizations('/oracle/apps/fnd/preferences/webui/PreferencesPG');

Returns:
/oracle/apps/fnd/preferences/webui/customizations/site/0/PreferencesPG
2. Export the above personalization file to /tmp/mytest from the DEV instance

Before exporting, check the directory /tmp/mytest is valid and writable.

java oracle.jrad.tools.xml.exporter.XMLExporter \
/oracle/apps/fnd/preferences/webui/customizations/site/0/PreferencesPG \
-username apps -password appsdevpass \
-dbconnection "(description=(address_list=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=myhost)(port=1523)))(connect_data=(sid=DEV)))" \
-rootdir "/tmp/mytest"

3. Import the above exported file into the UAT instance:

java oracle.jrad.tools.xml.importer.XMLImporter \ /tmp/mytest/oracle/apps/fnd/preferences/webui/customizations/site/0/PreferencesPG.xml
\ -usernameapp -password appsuatpass \
-dbconnection "(description=(address_list=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=myhost)(port=1522)))(connect_data=(sid=UAT)))" \
-rootdir "/tmp/mytest" -rootPackage "/oracle/apps/fnd"

Oracle Fusion – Application – Intro- Overview –


A very useful overview on Fusion Applications by Mani Kumar Manda from  Rhapsody Technologies

What is “Fusion Applications” • Fusion Applications is neither “Fusion Technology” nor “Fusion Middleware”, rather it is a new generation of business application (just like existing EBS, PeopleSoft, or Siebel) that is built using Fusion Middleware from ground up, only better

Fusion applications is – Not any of the current applications; and – It is all of the current applications • mashed up along with usability and business process optimization giving birth to a new set of better applications

Fusion Middleware technology • SOA Suite (BPEL, BPM) – Application Integration Architecture (AIA) • JDeveloper • Web Center • Applications Development Framework (ADF) – ADFui, ADFbc, ADFdi • Applications Server • BI Publisher • Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) • Content Management • Collaboration • Oracle Database 11g • Essbase • Enterprise Manager • Identity Management

Presentation here —

 

Whitepaper here —

Fusion Applications – How is it built? Fusion Application revolves around business processes. Entire application is architected to run around processes within the users business. To be able to accomplish this, Oracle has leveraged several technologies such as User Interface Shell (UI Shell), Business Process Management (BPM), Business Activity Monitoring (BAM), Enterprise Scheduler Service (ESS), Application Integration Architecture (AIA), etc.

I am sure you wanna soft copy of ppt and white paper , and lots of question , shouldn’t be good to reach the author directly , here you go
