Defining Working Directories for File Objects

When you are assigned a file object, Quest® Stat® places a copy of that object in one of your predefined working directories. These working directories are defined either by a system administrator in a maintenance table, or you can define them yourself in the User Default Directories tab of the Stat User Options window.

The User Default Directories tab displays a list of the active file types defined in Stat for Oracle® Applications environments. From here you can define your default working directory and a separate working file directory for each file type. Defining a working directory for a file type is optional. If a file type working directory is not defined, Stat places copies of the migrated file objects in your default working directory.

1
Select User Options | Stat Options. Then open the User Default Directories tab of the Stat User Options window.
2
In the Module field, select Oracle Applications.
3
In the Default Working File Server field, select the server for the default working directory.
4
In the Default Working File Path field, enter the path of the default working file location starting after the file server’s root or home path.
5
Click Apply or OK.
1
Select User Options | Stat Options. Then click the User Default Directories tab of the Stat User Options window.
2
In the Module field, select Oracle Applications.
6
Click either Apply or OK.

Associating Objects from Other CSRs

You can use the Read CSR Wizard to add objects that are associated with another CSR.

1
On the Objects tab, click Read CSR.... Stat opens the CSR Read Wizard.
Quest® Stat® closes the Search CSR Engine and displays all the objects associated with the CSR in the bottom portion of the Read CSR Wizard.

Creating File Objects

With proper security rights, you can create a new file object, add it to a CSR, and move it to the assigned working directory of the developer. When creating a file object, you can use a file template, or base it on an existing object.

In Quest® Stat®, file templates are associated with particular file types. They help standardize development by defining in a reusable format the basic characteristics and structure of new file objects. This way, when you need to create a file object of a particular type, you can use an associated template as a starting point. This saves time and helps enforce adherence to development standards.

When new Oracle® file objects are created from an existing object, Stat remembers the new objects association with the source object. When the source object is identified during a patch impact analysis, Stat indicates the source object was used to create a new object. This alerts you that a patch may impact this custom object.

2
Click New Object.
3
(Optional) In the Assigned To field select a different developer.
4
In the Source field, do one of the following:
Select Existing Object if you want to base the new file object on an existing object
Select Template if you want to base the new file object on a template
5
(Optional) In the File Type field select a different file type.
If basing the new file object on a template and your system administrator has defined more than one template for the selected file type, select the file template you want to use in the Template field. Then select the language and product you want to associate with the object in the New object Language and Product fields.
If basing the new file object on an existing object, select the active environment in which the object resides in the Environment field. At this point, if the object you are basing the new object on is a predefined (i.e. non-custom) Oracle file type, Stat prompts you to select the product and language the existing object is associated with. Select the product and language and click Fetch. Stat queries the environment and retrieves all the objects of the selected type, product, and language. Select the object you want and, if applicable, then select the language and product you want to associate with the new object in the New object Language and Product fields.]
IMPORTANT: If the Oracle Agent is not running when you click Fetch, Stat is unable to process the request and displays a warning message. When this is the case, re-start the agent and click Fetch again. Also, if you are basing the new object on an existing, custom Oracle file type object, you are not prompted to specify a product or language for either the existing object or the new object. After you select an environment, Stat queries that environment and retrieves all the objects of the custom file type you selected.
7
In the New Object Name field, enter a name for the new object.
8
Click Create.
9
Click Yes for each instance of the object that you want to add to the CSR. Click No for each instance of the object that you do not want to add.

Stat adds each instance of the new object that you selected to the CSR. At this point, the file object exists only in the working directory of the assigned developer but is not yet archived. For more information on archiving, see Creating Archive Sets (Oracle Applications) .

Editing File Objects

You can open file objects directly from Quest® Stat® for editing purposes. Stat opens the object in whichever program your operating system uses to open files of that type.

It is important to remember that when you edit an object, you are editing only the version of the object that exists in the particular environment you selected. The same object may exist in other environments, and these versions are not affected by any changes you make to the edited version. Because you can edit only one version of the object at a time, the changes you make to the object in one environment do not affect the version in the other environment. If you want all your environments to contain the same version of an object, you have to migrate that object to each environment. For more information on migrating, see Documenting Migrations and Process Requests (Oracle Applications) .

If you want to edit a file object associated with a CSR, you can open it directly from Stat with whichever program your operating system uses to open files of that type. When selecting a file object to edit, remember that you can choose from different versions of the same object. These include the versions that exist in users’ working directories as well as all the source file locations defined for any of the environments on the migration path of the CSR. However, because source file locations do not include drive information, Stat cannot open a file object from the same location in which it resides for a selected environment. Instead, Stat copies the file to the file download directory. For Windows 7/8 it is C:\Program Data\Quest Software\Stat\temp.
