Oracle Forms Record and Play - Creating a Load Part 1

Having completed the Oracle E-Business Suite Setup to enable forms recording and playback you are ready to create your load. Before doing so it is worth reviewing the Overview page so you understand the whole process.

You create a new load by following these steps:

As soon as you start an Oracle session in recording mode all your actions are recorded to a file. Plan your recording sessions in advance and perform the navigation and data entry with care to avoid mistakes.

During a recording, each record entered must use the same navigation and commands in the same fields and in the same order. However, at the end of the final record you may want to alter the commands entered. For instance, instead of saving at the end of every record you may wish to do so only at the end of the load. DataLoad fully supports this and where a different sequence of commands was entered after the last field on the final record these commands will be used at the end of every load in place of the navigation and commands otherwise used at the end of every record.

Once you have exited E-Business Suite when recording a file you should retrieve the file from the application server and open it using DataLoad. If the server is running Windows then you may be able to map a drive from your PC, otherwise you should use file transfer software such as FTP or create a Samba share to access the server from your PC. Your DBA or system administrator may be required to help you do this.

Further important information relating to the recording of loads can be found in Create a Load Part 2 and The Rules. Please read these pages before recording loads.
