Each key flexfield has one corresponding table, known as the combinations tablewhere the flexfield stores a list of the complete codes, with one column for each segment of the code, together with the corresponding unique ID number a code combination ID number or CCID for that code.

If you choose this format type but enter values that appear to be numbers, such as or 20, you should be ssuite that these values will still behave as character values.

The Parent field displays whether the child value is itself a parent value. You can share value sets among segments in different flexfields, segments in different structures of the same flexfield, and even segments within the same flexfield structure. Controlling access to the creation or modification of value set values can be an important piece of implementing Separation of Duties in an organization. For key flexfields, see: If you must change a value set after it has been attached to a flexfield segment s or a concurrent program parameter syou must first detach it from the e-buusiness s or parameter s.
