Environment Sourcing of Oracle apps in Windows

As most of the DBA’s prefer Linux Environment for Oracle apps. However some due to other support may go to windows. So as a developer perspective they have to navigate to different application which are called as tops for example $AU_TOP. However in windows to access this we have to do a step called Environment Sourcing in windows command to access the top.

So in order to do it. First we have to find out the environment variable file which will be installed during Installation and configuration time.

cd E:\test\testappl

Now once invoked the “envshell.cmd” code then we will be able to access the Application top.

Now try to go to AU_TOP by giving the below command

E:\test\testappl>cd %AU_TOP%

E:\test\testappl>cd %FND_TOP%

Salary Management rollback the proposed Salary

To rollback the proposed salary which has been uploaded by webadi in Salary Management we have to use API to delete the uploaded Records.

So first query the records that has been uploaded in the backend by the below Query

select * from per_pay_proposals where change_date = :p_date;

Once you are sure to remove the records use the below

CURSOR fetch_det
FROM   per_pay_proposals
WHERE   TRUNC (change_date) = trunc(sysdate-73);

l_salary_warning   BOOLEAN;
l_err_msg          VARCHAR2 (500);
FOR i IN fetch_det
hr_maintain_proposal_api.delete_salary_proposal (
p_pay_proposal_id         => i.pay_proposal_id,
p_business_group_id       => i.business_group_id,
p_object_version_number   => i.object_version_number,
p_validate                => FALSE,

DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line (
‘Proposal has been Deleted: ‘ || i.pay_proposal_id

l_err_msg := SQLERRM;
DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line (‘Inner Exception: ‘ || l_err_msg);
l_err_msg := SQLERRM
DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line (‘Main Exception: ‘ || l_err_msg);

Scheduling Failed. Unable to find a calendar date

As I got this Error while placing a Sales order I just searched and got thsi Document from Oracle (Doc ID 1265873.1) As Mentioned I have Setup the Workday Calendar and then when I checked the Issue was resolved.

Below is the solution provided by Oracle

Set up the Workday Calendar.

The Workday Calendar must be setup correctly and rebuilt any time modifications are made to the Calendar.

Navigation paths: Bill of Materials/Setup/Calendars

Once you have made your modifications, you need to rebuild the calendar by selecting the special option on the top tool bar. On the drop down list, click ‘Build’.

Then run data collections to collect this information, then try to schedule the order.

If this still fails then review Note 563072.1 – ‘Unable To Find A Calendar Date’ While Scheduling a Sales Order
— this details other errors in setup that can cause this issue to occur.
