FND_LOAD

Data Synchronization: Data Synchronization is a process in which some setup data would be synchronized, and this would be more important when you are working in oracle application
development/implementation project. The equally important that AOL data Migration takes place necessary to synchronize the data across databases instance during
• Installations (New desc. flex field creations etc)
• Upgrades (Apps upgrade etc)
• Maintenance (Value set changes etc)


FNDLOAD is one and only oracle solution. It can be defined as a concurrent program that can move Oracle Applications data between database and text file representations. Or this can be defined as
FNDLOAD can download data from an application entity into an editable text file, which can be uploaded to another database.

Working of FNDLOAD: Conversion between database format and text file format is specified by a configuration file. Oracle does provide configuation file and it is important to just pass the
configuration file name and then just call the loader and leave everything .


These are the extensive list which can be done through FNDLOAD
• Concurrent Programs, Executables
• Request Groups, Request Sets
• Profile Options
• Key and Descriptive Flexfields
• Menus and Responsibilities
• Forms and Form Functions
• Attachments
• Messages
• Value Sets and Values
• Lookup Types
• User Responsibilities
• Printer Definitions
• FND Dictionary
• Help Configuration
• Document Sequences
• Concurrent Manager Schedules


Advantages using FNDLOAD are :• Because downloaded data is stored in a text file, version      administration is possible
• No learning curve.
• Fully supported and recommended by Oracle
• Capture the migrations in a file and use it during installations, clones etc. to migrate in batch
• Pin-point when something happened and where (database) easily
• Your AOL data migration process is now simplified and streamlined.


Disadvantages:• Applications patching mechanisms use FNDLOAD heavily – possibility of negative impact is
not zero
• UPLOAD_MODE=REPLACE only for menus
• No validation against migrating database/instance sensitive data.


Syntax : To use FNDLOAD, the following syntax is needed.
FNDLOAD apps/appspwd 0 Y mode configfile datafile entity [parameter1…..]
• The mode is either DOWNLOAD or UPLOAD.
• The configfile is the file that Fndload needs to download on upload data.
• The data file is the output file, in which the downloaded data is written
• The entity is the entity you want to download,


Modes of Operation:Two modes - Upload and Download…
1. Example of download:
FNDLOADapps/pwd 0 Y DOWNLOAD ${FND_TOP}/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct myfile.ldt \
PROGRAM CONCURRENT_PROGRAM_NAME= concurrent_program_short_name>
APPLICATION_SHORT_NAME=

2. Example of Upload
FNDLOAD apps/pwd 0 Y UPLOAD ${FND_TOP}/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct myfile.ldt -
CUSTOM_MODE=FORCE undocumented parameter
