                                                 Oracle Assets Invoice Description API

You can use the Invoice Description API to modify asset descriptions directly via PL/SQL rather than through the normal Oracle Assets interfaces. The Invoice Description API uses the FA_ASSET_DESC_PUB.UPDATE_INVOICE_DESC() procedure. You can use this API if you have a custom interface that makes it difficult to use with the existing interfaces in Oracle Assets. You can also update invoice descriptions using the Asset Workbench.
Updating Values
When populating structures, you only need to populate the values that are changing. Also, you do not need to pass the values that are not changing.

Attention: For columns which are being changed from a populated value to NULL. For example, if you are removing the PO_NUMBER, you must pass either FND_API.G_MISS_NUM, G_MISS_DATE, or G_MISS_CHAR depending on the data type. This tells the API to null out the current value. Remember, the API will treat null values as meaning no change.


 This document covers use of the Invoice Description API.
