R12: Processes Unable To Recognize Profile Option (Doc ID 1079948.6)

Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Project Foundation - Version 11.5.2 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When running the PRC: Distribute Labor Costs, PALDLC (for example) in Oracle Projects, you find the following warnings in the log file:

                  "Using default of 500 expenditure items per set"
                   This is because profile PA_NUM_EXP_ITEMS_PER_SET ("PA: Selective Flexfield Segment for AutoAccounting") is not defined.

                  "Defaulting key segment"
                   This is because profile PA_SELECTIVE_FLEX_SEG ("PA: Expenditure Items Per Set") is not defined.

But, your profile options in System Administrator are showing as defined at the Application Level (Projects) which is appropriate.
                   1. Responsibility: System Administrator. 
                   2. Navigate to Profile -> System.
                   3. Check box at Site.
                   4. Check box at Application and enter Oracle Projects.

The system still does not recognize the profile options that were defined for Oracle Projects.


Run the following select to see if there is more than just the standard installed Projects application:

     Select fa.application_id, application_short_name, application_name
     from fnd_application fa,
             fnd_application_tl ft
     where application_short_name like '%PA%'
     and fa.application_id = ft.application_id;
