User Exits in Oracle Reports


User Exits in Oracle Reports

We can integrate Oracle reports with Oracle Application Object Library, and run them as concurrent programs from your forms or through standard request submission.

These are the user exits available in Oracle Reports that makes AOL integration.

FND SRWINIT
FND SRWEXIT
FND FORMAT_CURRENCY
FND FLEXIDVAL
FND FLEXSQL

FND SRWINIT

  • This is a User Exit which sets your profile option values and allows Oracle AOL user exits to detect that they have been called by oracle repots.
  • It must be included if one is using any ORACLE APPLICATION OBJECT LIBRARY features in his report (such as concurrent processing).
  • FND SRWINIT also allows your report to use the correct organization automatically.
  • Can be used in BEFORE-REPORT Trigger.
  • Syntax is : SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND SRWINIT’);

FND SRWEXIT

  • This user exit ensures that all the memory allocated for AOL user exits has been freed up properly.
  • Can be used in AFTER- REPORT Trigger.
  • Syntax is : SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND SRWEXIT’);

FND FORMAT_CURRENCY

  • To format the currency amount dynamically depending upon the precision of the actual currency value, standard precision, users profile values and location (country) of the site.
  • You obtain the currency value from the database into an Oracle Reports column.
  • Define another Oracle Reports column, a formula column of type CHAR, which executes the FORMAT_CURRENCY user exit to format the currency value.
  • A displayed field has this formula column as its source so that the formatted value is automatically copied into the field for display.

Syntax:


FND FORMAT_CURRENCY
CODE=:column containing currency
DISPLAY_WIDTH=field width for display
AMOUNT=:source column name
DISPLAY=:display column name
[MINIMUM_PRECISION=:P_MIN_PRECISION]
[PRECISION={STANDARD|EXTENDED}]
[DISPLAY_SCALING_FACTOR=:P_SCALING_FACTOR]

FND FLEXSQL

Call this user exit to create a SQL fragment usable by your report to tailor your SELECT statement that retrieves flexfield values. This fragment allows you to SELECT flexfield values or to create a WHERE, ORDER BY, GROUP BY, or HAVING clause to limit or sort the flexfield values returned by your SELECT statement. You call this user exit once for each fragment you need for your select statement. You define all flexfield columns in your report as type CHARACTER even though your table may use NUMBER or DATE or some other datatype.

Syntax:


FND FLEXSQL
CODE=”flexfield code”
APPL_SHORT_NAME=”application short name”
OUTPUT=”:output lexical parameter name”
MODE=”{ SELECT | WHERE | HAVING | ORDER BY}”
[DISPLAY=”{ALL | flexfield qualifier | segment number}”]
[SHOWDEPSEG=”{Y | N}”]
[NUM=”:structure defining lexical” | MULTINUM=”{Y | N}”]
[TABLEALIAS=”code combination table alias”]
[OPERATOR=”{ = | < | > | <= | >= | != | “||” | BETWEEN | QBE}”]
[OPERAND1=”:input parameter or value”]
[OPERAND2=”:input parameter or value”]

FND FLEXIDVAL

Call this user exit to populate fields for display. You pass the key flexfields data retrieved by the query into this exit from the formula column. With this exit you display values, descriptions and prompts by passing appropriate token (any one of VALUE, DESCRIPTION, APROMPT or LPROMPT).

Syntax:


FND FLEXIDVAL
CODE=”flexfield code”
APPL_SHORT_NAME=”application short name”
DATA=”:source column name”
[NUM=”:structure defining source column/lexical”]
[DISPLAY=”{ALL|flexfield qualifier|segment number}”]
[IDISPLAY=”{ALL|flexfield qualifier|segment
number}”]
[SHOWDEPSEG=”{Y | N}”]
[VALUE=”:output column name”]
[DESCRIPTION=”:output column name”]
[APROMPT=”:output column name”]
[LPROMPT=”:output column name”]
[PADDED_VALUE=”:output column name”]
[SECURITY=”:column name”]

    Hi ,

    All the standard and custom reports are failing with below error. Please help me to resolve the issues.

    REP-1416: ‘beforereport’: User exit ‘FND’. APP-FND-00005: Incorrect arguments were passed to user exit #FLEXSQL
    CODE=”GL#”
    APPL_SHORT_NAME=”SQLGL”
    OUTPUT=”:FLEXDATA”
    MODE=”SELECT”
    DISPLAY=”ALL”
    NUM=”:STRUCT_NUM”
    TABLEALIAS=”CC”.
    Please correct the user exit call in your form exit.

    In before report we are using :
    SRW.REFERENCE(:STRUCT_NUM);
    SRW.USER_EXIT(‘FND FLEXSQL
    CODE=”GL#”
    APPL_SHORT_NAME=”SQLGL”
    OUTPUT=”:FLEXDATA”
    MODE=”SELECT”
    DISPLAY=”ALL”
    NUM=”:STRUCT_NUM”
    TABLEALIAS=”CC”‘);

    Thanks,
    Sree.
