Problem in Oracle HRMS Self Service

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Dear Experts

We had the following error in the Self Service screens related to SIT, however it works fine from the core application:

Error - Program error: Please inform your support representative that: FLEXFIELDS SERVER-SIDE VALIDATION Package reports error: call_userval() exception: ORA-01841: (full) year must be between -4713 and +9999, and not be 0

This error appears just after upgrading the DB to 10g version

I have not worked on HRMS but have worked on discrete manufactuing applications and i guess some setup/initialization is missing after the upgrade.

I also think the error is coming from flex fields for one of the fields in your page. i am not sure whether that field is a hidden field or a visible field. Also i am not really sure about the whether the error is related to KFF ( key flex field ) or DFF ( descriptive flex field ).

I think logging a tar/SR would be right but parallely you can look at other options on how to resolve this.
Hi Guys

As per the Note: 295208.1 (Dependencies in KFF (SIT)).

The database procedure "FND_FLEX_PLSQL.VALIDATE" can be used to add "user hook" routine you can use to implement dependencies in
KFF segments.

We found customization using a date conversion that seems it is not suppported by 10G.

The statement that may caused the problem was:
AND to_date(user_segment8, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS') >=
to_date(a.segment8, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS')
AND to_date(user_segment8, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS')<=
to_date(a.segment9, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH24:MI:SS')

I guess this was related to your first research:
Issue caused due to use of User Hooks

We commented it and the problem was solved.

Thanks guys and see you soon
