to close the PO from back-end.
Plz give me the details with an example. I am confuse for

Please have a look at sample code from PACKAGE BODY PO_INTERFACE_S
To check the success, you need to check the boolean value returned.
Retur n code can be either STATE_FAILED or SUBMISSION_FAIL ED or perhaps other values.
When the API fails, you can get the details of the failure from table po_online_repor t_text after API Call

If you are running this API from SQL*Plus, then ensure that you have set your session using fnd_global.apps _initialize

x_doctype := 'PO';
IF NOT po_actions.clos e_po(interface. po_header_id,
x_doctype,
g_document_subt ype,
x_po_line_id,
x_line_location _id,
'CLOSE',
'',
'PO',
'N',
x_return_code,
'Y') then

po_message_s.sq l_error('CLOSE_ PO',l_progress, sqlcode);
END IF;

Thanks

Hi Anil,
As demonstrated by you, I created a CLAF and applied the same. The page rendering is all messed up after this. In my CLAF, I did not make any custom changes, just accepted the defaults. But when I launch the apps, the pages show all links concatenated, there are many line breaks which have gone missing, the entire skin seems out of place!

My question is, that if CLAF allows us to make selective changes to the STYLES, how can we retain the default page layout rendering? I was going through a document by Oracle and came across the style "GlobalButtonTe xt" which needs a property "Padding=5px" which solves the issue of the global navigation links concatenation. I applied this customization and it works and the global links are now showing up properly. But rest of the links and the page layout is still out of place.

But why this erratic behavior? If we are defining CLAF, only the selective modifications must be applied, and that is my understanding. Why is the entire page rendering being put out of place? Any leads???

Thank s.

Regards,
Sa nket.

Hi anil;

I created new custom look and feel by using ‚ÄúCustomizing Look and Feel Administrator‚ÄĚ responsibly but facing problem with train region. Train station text is appearing fine but station images are not appearing in page.

I seen few references in meta-link (Bug 6269963, 455216.1, 402463.1) but there is no useful points.

Any suggestions??

Hi anil,

i want to modify the subtab region using claf. however i dint get "subtab" in the component list. My requirement is, when i create UI for a model using subtab navigation, the tabs look and feel i need to change. In 11i, it comes in a single strip. In R12 look and feel for subtab region is better than 11i.

Please suggest.

Thank s,
veena

Hi Anil,

I am able to achive the custom header, footer. However I am facing an issue related to the text hint message '(defined in fnd_message IRC_VIS_REGISTE R_HDR2) which is displayed in the 'iRec-Registrat ion Page' under the heading 'Registration'.

Message: If you have already registered with iRec, then please login now.

I have used the pagelayout.uit as per your document. Do I need to add any additional line in the pagelayout.uit to get this message.

Thank s,
Sridhar
