Detailed Description and Symptoms

?

The OAE_RPT file is the Name of the Oracle Applications Extension report file. The extension is .out.
 
For example:
/home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/out/o4447064.out
The OAE_OFILE is the Name of the Oracle Applications System output file. The exenstion is .req.
 
For example:
/home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/log/l4447064.req
In SP6, these variables are set correctly if you echo them in a SUCCESS script.
 
In SP7, the values are swapped.

 


Investigation

?The OAE_RPT file is the Name of the Oracle Applications Extension report file. The extension is .out. For example:
 /home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/out/o4447064.out
 
 The OAE_OFILE is the Name of the Oracle Applications System output file. The exenstion is .req. For example:
 /home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/log/l4447064.req
 
 In SP6, these variables are set correctly if you echo them in a SUCCESS script. In SP7, the values are swapped.
 
 Steps to reproduce in SP7:
 1. Create a SUCCESS.OAE script with:
 echo in success
 echo ofile is $OAE_OFILE
 echo rpt is $OAE_RPT_FILE
 
 2. Run FNDSCURS or any other OAE job.
 3. Look at your ofile.
 You will see:
 
 in success
 ofile is /home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/out/o4447064.out
 rpt is /home/oracle/VIS12/inst/apps/VIS12_teal/logs/appl/conc/log/l4447064.req
 
 These values are switched. ofile should be the .req value and rpt should be the out value.


Solution

?This will be addressed in SP8.
