R12 General Ledger Journal Sources Form (GLXSTSRC) - Cannot Navigate Using Keyboard Exclusively to Access Descriptive Flexfields Field

(Doc ID 2294402.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Enable a descriptive flexfield segment on the Journal Sources flexfield.

Then once this is compiled,  navigate to the Journal Sources form (GLXSTSRC). Note it is not possible to access/enter flexfield data without using the mouse - which means this is not available to anyone who cannot use the mouse and therefore does not meet Oracle's Accessibility Standards.


Steps performed to identify the issue:

1. enabled a descriptive flexfield segment for application general ledger and title journal sources;

       prompt = TESTDFF
       Displayed = ENABLED

2. added context field value = TST with description TST2;

3. went to segments;

4 added on column = ATRRIBUTE1 value set 15 Number ENABLED and DISPLAYED;

5 went to Journal sources press TAB and the DFF field was jumped.

DFF values are accessible only using mouse.
