How is lookups different from Value sets ?
What does FND stand for ?
How do we validate 2 parameters in a Concurrent Program without using Value Sets ?
How do we optain paramater 2 based on the parameter 1 value in the above Concurrent Program (for a Report) ?

Thanks in advance

Hi

I know a little bit in your question.

fnd means foundation. All foundation tables start with fnd_ as prefix.

Lachmi,

Value sets are used in flexfields whereas lookups are used in predefined columns. Lookups are always just a smallish list of possible values, whereas value sets also can be free text, dates, values in a specific table and a lot of other things.

Apparently, Oracle originally intended to name the Application Object Library "Foundation" and used the short name "FND". For trademark reasons they had to rename it, but they kept the short name in order to not have to perform massive changes in what had been developed.

If you want to validate the parameters passed to a concurrent program in the form where you start concurrent programs, you have to use value sets. You also can (and should) perform validation on the parameters in the concurrent program itself. If they are invalid, a descriptive error message should be printed in the log and the concurrent program should exit with an error.

As to your last question, I am not sure what you mean.
