User Interface (Character, Smart Client, Internet/NCA)? l Application Perspective èEnd User / Business Analyst èTechnical (e.g. Developer, DBA, IT, System Support) èOther l Roles èCurrent - Technical Ability (Application, Tools, & Process) èFuture - Desire to become more Technical? l Role Perspective èConsultant / Implementation èOrganizational Setup / Support / Reporting / Developer Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 3
  • 4. Objectives, Assumptions, & Scope:u Presentation Objectives l Provide overview of technical roles, responsibilities, & tools - relating to Oracle GL (applies generically to all applications) l Provide understanding of major GL & FND application tables as they relate to application processes l Provide information about where to obtain more information & how to become “more technical”u Presentation Assumptions l Already Familiar w/ Rel 11.0 & General Ledger application l Commercial Installationu Presentation - Out Of Scope Topics l Average Balancing l Encumbrance & Budgetary Control (non-profit/govt) l How to use technical tools (e.g. SQL) l Database schema designu Presentation Expectations l Q&A - Please hold until end or ask during breakout session l Aggressive agenda - We will move quickly through the materials & will only scratch the surface Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 4
  • 5. Apps Tech Foundation Perspectives: u Application Super Users Perspective l Ad-hoc Reporting (e.g. Discoverer) l OLAP tools (e.g. Oracle Financial Analyzer) l Production Support (e.g. Fix problems, delete unwanted data, etc.) u Implementation Perspective l Programmatically Loading Apps Setups (e.g. COA values) l Interfaces & Extracts l Historical Data Conversion l Application Customizations u Application Development & Support Perspective l Custom Reports l Application Customizations & Enhancements l Oracle Alert l Oracle Discoverer - End User Layer / Business Areas l Data Warehouse / Data Mart Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 5
  • 6. Database Objects: l Database Object - something created and stored in a database. Tables, views, synonyms, indexes, sequences, clusters, and columns are all types of database objects. l Table - the basic storage structure in a relational database, which consists of one or more units of information (rows) each containing the same kinds of values (columns). l View - a database object that is a logical representation of a table, which is derived from a table but has no storage of its own and often may be used in the same manner as a table. l Synonym - a name assigned to a table or view that may thereafter be used to refer to it. l Index - an Oracle feature used primarily to speed execution and impose uniqueness upon certain data. Indexes provide a faster access method to a table’s data instead of being required to perform a full table scan. Works similar to a card catalog. l Sequence - a database object used to generate unique integers for use as primary keys. Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 6
  • 7. Technical Tools Introduction: u Data Dictionary (yellow pages for the database) l “DBA_” Tables l Views l Joins / Primary - Foreign key relationships l Table indexes & sequences l Etc. u Data Definition Language (DDL) l Creating / Changing database objects . . . l Create Table, Alter Table, Drop Table l Granting Database access & object privileges u Data Manipulation Language (DML) l Changing data w/i tables . . . l Select, Insert, Update, Delete Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 7
  • 8. Technical Tools: u SQL (Structured Query Language) - used to perform DDL & DML commands (SQL*Plus) u SQL*Loader - used to load data from flat files into Oracle database tables u PL/SQL - used to perform programming logic (e.g. “If . . . Then . . . Else”) u Developer 2000 - used to develop custom forms, reports, etc. u Designer 2000 - case tool used to design database schemas & generate custom tables u Discoverer 2000 - Adhoc query & reporting tool used to access data in database tables Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 8
  • 9. Technical Tools Cont’d: u Operating System: l Operating system commands & navigation(e.g. Unix) l Operating system file structure l Text Editor (e.g. Unix vi) u Connectivity Tools: l FTP (File Transfer Protocol) l Telnet u Understanding of server & database connectivity: l IP Address / Host Name l TNSNAMES.ORA file (c:orawinnetworkadmin directory) l IDs & Passwords (e.g. Operating System & Database) Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 9
  • 10. Database vs. Application Security:u Database Level Security: l Database Users (e.g. GL, AP, AR, APPLSYS, etc.) - own all database objects & have been granted privileges to access l Database IDs required for ALL tools which directly access Oracle database objects (e.g. SQL*Plus, Discoverer, Developer / Designer 2000, etc.)u Application Level Security: l System Administration application - controls application access (via forms, reports, programs, etc.) to database objects through “Data Groups”, which are assigned to User Responsibilities l End users sheltered from the database level of security when accessing via Oracle applications l “APPS” schema contains privileges to access ALL application objects owned by Oracle-defined database users (e.g. GL, AP, AR, APPLSYS, etc.) Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 10
  • 11. Linking Applications To Back-End:u From w/i Oracle applications, use the following menu command... “Help | About This Record”, which indicates the base table or view associated with the active formu Examine Utility . . . Accessed via Oracle application menu . . . “Help | Tools | Examine”. This utility can be secured via a profile option & requires knowledge of the “Apps” database password. Permits viewing of context- sensitive information associated w/ form (ties front end application to back end database)u Oracle Application Technical Reference Manuals (TRMs) - Learn about primary/foreign key relationships & tables impacted by various modulesu Oracle Application User Guides; Application Object Library & System Administrationu SQL Trace Utility . . . Accessed via Oracle application menu . . . “Help | Tools | Trace” - creates a log file of SQL calls Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 11
  • 12. Technical Education Resources: u Books such as . . . “ORACLE The Complete Reference” by George Koch & Kevin Loney u Oracle Education . . . Technical / Application Developer Tracks . . . “Introduction to Oracle” (5-day course on SQL*Plus & PL/SQL) u Computer Based Training (CBT) - l SQL l PL/SQL l SQL*Loader l UNIX u OAUG - conferences & white papers u Exploring - Using the tools / utilities & methods identified in “Linking Applications To Back End” Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 12

  • 15. GL Objects Trivia: u Oracle General Ledger - Release 11.0 contains . . . l 130 tables, excluding temporary processing tables l 70 forms l 140 concurrent programs / reports l Note: These counts do NOT reflect tables and forms, which are part of and accessible to the GL application, but are NOT owned by the GL user (e.g. FND objects owned by APPLSYS are NOT included). Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 15
  • 16. Applsys / Foundation Tables: u Database tables beginning with “FND_”, often referred to as “Foundation” are common across many applications (e.g. Key & Descriptive Flexfields) u Owner for “FND_” Database Objects . . . “APPLSYS” u In order to be recognized by Oracle Applications, all tables, forms, concurrent programs / executables, etc. must be “registered”; Registration occurs via the “Application Object Library” application using the responsibilities called “Application Developer” and “System Administrator” Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 16

  • 30. GL Technical Foundation - Tables : GL Open Interface Tables “GL_” Oracle General Ledger- Technical Foundation 30
  • 31. Application Open Interface Tables (GL) :GL_INTERFACE Used to import journal entry transactions (budget, actual, encumbrance, and statistical) from external sources. Also used to send transactions between sets of books (e.g. Consolidation, MRC, CENTRA, etc.). Notes: Requires calendar periods to be “Open” or “Future”. The “Journal Import” program transfers data from the Interface table into the Oracle base tables (e.g. GL_JE_BATCHES, GL_JE_HEADERS, and GL_JE_LINES). The “Journal Posting” program changes the posting status w/i the “GL_JE_” tables, updates the GL_BALANCES table, creates Intercompany Balancing transactions, Suspense Posting transactions, etc.GL_BUDGET_INTERFACE Used to import budget data directly into GL_BALANCES table without requiring accounting periods to be open or run the Journal Posting programGL_DAILY_RATES_INTERFACE Used to automates the loading of currency conversion rates into the GL_DAILY_RATES table.
