Announcing my upcoming Book on Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Concepts (1Z0-146 Preparation handbook)

Hello,

It gives me great pleasure and honour to announce my upcoming book Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Professional Guide with Pact Publishers. The book 'Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Professional Guide' is focussed on the preparation of OCP (1Z0-146) examination. The book doesn't restricts its scope to the examination but aims to strengthen the advanced concepts in Oracle 11g PL/SQL.

The book has been reviewed by Oracle ACEs Kamran Agayev, Ronald Rood and Mohan Dutta. It is under production and is expected to be released by May, 2012.

Basics of Partition Tables in Oracle

Basics of Partition Tables

Partitioning is a method of splitting an object (a table or index) into separate parts (called partitions) based on some criterion that is assigned to the partition. The criterion might be a date range, a number range, or any other possible value. Imagine, for example, that you have a huge table that is driving you crazy because queries on it are really slow. You get so mad at this table that you take a logical hatchet and begin to slice the table up into many smaller tables is a partition.

Please use ANSI join syntax

The old Oracle join syntax really should be consigned to history.

R12 - XLA / FAH - After running Validate AAD program, why the XLA dynamic package becomes invalid?

vamsi kasina's picture

Subledger Accounting / Financials Accounting Hub uses dynamic package to generate the journal entries.
Depending on the rules (AMB Setup and Event Model) the dynamic package will be created, when the Validate Application Accounting Definition program has been run.
The package will be generated with the naming convension XLA_{5DIGIT_APPL_ID}_AAD_{SEED_CUSTOM}_{6DIGIT_AAD_HASH}_PKG.
AAD_HASH value will be found in xla_product_rules_b.product_rule_hash_id.

   SELECT 'XLA_' || lpad(application_id,5,'0') || '_AAD_' || 
          product_rule_type_code || '_' || lpad(product_rule_hash_id,6,'0') || '_PKG'
   FROM xla_product_rules_b
   WHERE application_id = &p_appl_id
   AND amb_context_code = NVL('&amb_context_code','DEFAULT')
   AND product_rule_code = '&aad_code';
Examples for dynamic pakcages:
XLA_00555_AAD_C_011117_PKG
XLA_00200_AAD_S_000012_PKG

vamsi kasina's picture

There are three levels of reporting currencies.
Subledger, Journal and Balance.

The data will be create for those ledgers, when the following processes have been run.
Create Accounting - Journals will be created in SLA.
Transfer to GL & Journal Import - Journals will be created in GL.
Post to GL - Balances will be created / updated in GL.

Subledger Level - It maintains data in SLA for ALC also, you can view the accounting in SLA OA pages and other reports.
