Symptoms

On R12.0.x, and 12.1.x, when adding an attachment, the table FND_LOBS shows a record for it, but with the columns PROGRAM_NAME, and UPLOAD_DATE stay as NULL.

When querying the table FND_LOBS, it shows that it is missing the entry FNDATTCH for the program name for uploaded attachments. This results in the impossibility of identifying where the records in the table come from, or if they can be purged or not.

When using the following query, the program name FNDATTCH is never returned:

select distinct program_name from fnd_lobs;
