Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a descriptive flexfield uses a reference field, referring to a :BLOCK.:FIELD value from a specific form, that flexfield will cause an error if it is displayed on a different form as well, where that :BLOCK.FIELD combination does not exist.
The error will be:
APP-FND-00676: The flexfield routine FDFGDC cannot read the default reference field specified for this descriptive flexfield. The developer specified a context field (via the Register Descriptive Flexfields form) that does not exist in this block of this form.
Action: Contact your system administrator, and choose another default reference field for this descriptive flexfield.
This note will propose a solution to this problem that allows the user to see the DFF on both forms without error. For clarity, a real case is presented, using the Additional Information for Agents (Service) Descriptive Flexfield. This DFF is used on several forms, such as the Service Request (CSXSRISR), Dispatch Center (CSFDCMAI) and Contact Center (CSCCCCRC). This method would be applicable to any area in E-Business Suite where a descriptive flexfield is used on multiple forms.
