Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (PFT) 5.x, users are having trouble defining new Allocations because the Column Name drop down lists in the Source and Outputs screens are not in alphabetical order.  The incorrect order makes it difficult to find the column needed for the Allocation.  The process is time consuming.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Profitability Management
  2. Go to Rule specification > Allocation Specification
  3. Create a new Allocation
  4. Go to the Source screen
  5. Select an Instrument table in the Table Name list
  6. Review the Column Name drop down list

The columns are not sorted by column name.
