Fusion Application 12 BI Server returns nulls data type for all the NUMERIC data type columns while querying VO’s metadata using ADF query. This incorrect behavior results null data type for all the NUMERIC data type columns while generating VO’s metadata CSV files (.mdcsv extension) which is causing the BIAPPS Fusion adapter ODI load plan failure with FA 12 source csv files. Please note that the steps in this note are a temporary workaround in order to unblock BIAPPS customers in using FA 12 source. The permanent fix for this issue is sscheduled to be delivered by the FA OTBI teams most likely in FA PB6. So once the FA patch has been applied the workaround steps in this tech note will no longer be needed.

Below is the FA OTBI tracking bug, once the patch is ready and applied on FA PODS, these steps will need to be reverted.
