Identifying Descriptive Flexfield in the Form

Descriptive Flexfield are used to gather additional information about the business entity beyond the information required by the Oracle application

Or we can also define the descriptive flexfield as the configurable fields which we can used to capture the additional information

Descriptive flexfield appears on a form as a field enclosed within Brackets

Many time I get the question from my functional users how they will be able to identify the descriptive flexfield name in the form.

There is an easy way to find this

Navigate the the Form where you want to find the Descriotive flexfield
The select the following Menu

Help > Examine

In the field select the Form in which you are looking for example “ PERSON.DF’. The Value field will display the Descriptive flexfield that you are looking for.
