What is FNDLOAD

What is FNDLOAD
==============


The Generic Loader is a concurrent program named FNDLOAD. The concurrent executable takes the following parameters:
FNDLOAD apps/pwd 0 Y mode configfile datafile entity [ param ... ]

where

The APPS schema and password in the form
username/password[@connect_string]. If connect_string is omitted, it is taken in a
platform–specific manner from the environment using the name TWO_TASK.

<> Concurrent program flags

mode UPLOAD or DOWNLOAD. UPLOAD causes the datafile to be uploaded to the
database. DOWNLOAD causes the loader to fetch rows and write them to the datafile.

The configuration file to use (usually with a suffix of .lct, but not enforced or
supplied by the loader).

The data file to write (usually with a suffix of .ldt, but not enforced or supplied by
the loader). If the data file already exists, it will be overwritten.

The entity(ies) to upload or download. When uploading, you should always upload
all entities, so specify a ”–” to upload all entities.

< [param] > Zero or more additional parameters are used to provide bind values in the access
SQL (both UPLOAD and DOWNLOAD). Each parameter is in the form
NAME=VALUE. NAME should not conflict with an attribute name for the
entities being loaded.



Syntax
=======

An example of downloading is:
----------------------------

FNDLOAD apps/apps@TEST 0 Y DOWNLOAD testcfg.lct out.ldt FND_APPLICATION_TL APPSNAME=FND

This command does the following:

connects to apps/apps@devd
downloads data using the configuration file testcfg.lct
writes data to data file out.ldt
downloads the FND_APPLICATION_TL entity with APPSNAME parameter defined as value FND’


An example of uploading is:
--------------------------

FNDLOAD apps/apps@custdb 0 Y UPLOAD fndapp.lct fnd_exmpl.ldt

This command does the following:
connects to apps/apps@custdb
uploads data using the configuration file in fndapp.lct from datafile in fnd_exmpl
The contents of the entire data file is uploaded.
