What is the difference between Fields and Flex Fields?
A field is a position on a form that one uses to enter, view, update, or delete information. A field prompt describes each field by telling what kind of information appears in the field, or alternatively, what kind of information should be entered in the field.

A flex field is an Oracle Applications field made up of segments. Each segment has an assigned name and a set of valid values. Oracle Applications uses flex fields to capture information about your organization. There are two types of flex fields: key flex fields and descriptive flex fields.
