FNDLOAD


FNDLOAD,AskHareesh Blog for OracleApps

The Generic Loader (FNDLOAD) is a concurrent program that can transfer Oracle Application entity data between database and text file. The loader reads a configuration file to determine which entity to access. In simple words FNDLOAD is used to transfer entity data from one instance/database to other. For example if you want to move a concurrent program/menu/value sets developed in DEVELOPMENT instance to PRODUCTION instance you can use this command.

Steps to Move a Concurrent program from one instance(Database) to other

  • Define your concurrent program and save it in first instance(for how to register a concurrent program click here)
  • Connect to your UNIX box on first instance and run the following command to download the .ldt file
    FNDLOAD apps/apps O Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct file_name.ldt PROGRAMAPPLICATION_SHORT_NAME=”Concurrent program application short name”CONCURRENT_PROGRAM_NAME=”concurrent program short name”
  • Move the downloaded .ldf file to new instance(Use FTP)
  • Connect to your UNIX box on second instance and run the following command to upload the .ldt file
    FNDLOAD apps/apps 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct file_name.ldt
Note: Make sure you are giving proper .lct file in the commands and don’t confuse with .lct and .ldt files
