Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA)
On OFSAAI 126.96.36.199.0 through 188.8.131.52, a data filter for a VARCHAR2 or CHAR flag triggers errors in the allocation and have attempted to update the Data Filter to include the single quotes around the value 'Y'. However, after doing this, the Data Filter will no longer open for edit. The following error is thrown in the allocation without the single quotes around the flag value in the Data Filter.
Logging OFS errors: (203105) Oracle drv_oci error: OCI Function:  - oexec(),
oexn() SQL Function:  - SQL function not found! Oracle
Error: ORA- 00904: "Y": invalid identifier Driver Function:
Checking the SQL generated in the log file shows the value of Y is missing the quotes causing the sql to fail:
where (((a.flag = Y)))
and a.as_of_date = to_date(''12/ 31/ 2014'', ''mm- dd- yyyy'')
After entering the single quotes to the flag for 'Y' in the Data Filter, the filter no longer opens in the UI with the hourglass continually spinning.
However, now the allocation runs successfully and generates the proper SQL.
where (((a.flag = 'Y')))
and a.as_of_date='12/ 31/ 2014'
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a data filter on a Flag field using Y or N.
2. Use the data filter in an allocation
3. Check the errors in the .err debug log file.
4. Edit the Data Filter and use single quotes ' ' around the value and Save
5. Rerun the allocation and recheck the Data Filter
