How is the LOCATION_ID value on Table HR_LOCATIONS_ALL Generated? (Doc ID 2022473.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

After upgrade from 11i to R12 noticed that LOCATION_ID changed from 7 characters to 15, as a result of which our existing functionality breaks.

Why is there an increase of number (data size) what drives that number change?
