-->Note that
-->---------
--> Oracle Menus are not attached to applications. Hence no need to include application short name
--> ICX_POR_SSP_HOME is the menu name. This can be validated via below SQL
--> select user_menu_name from fnd_menus_vl where menu_name = 'ICX_POR_SSP_HOME' ;

--> This will download all the lookup codes within the defined lookup

--> To upload
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD aflvmlu.lct XX_TRX_BATCH_STATUS.ldt

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-->To FNDLOAD User definitions from FND_USER
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscursp.lct ./XX_FND_USER_PASSI.ldt FND_USER USER_NAME='ANILPASSI'

To upload the FND_USER using FNDLOAD command use
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscursp.lct ./XX_FND_USER_PASSI.ldt

Notes for using FNDLOAD against FND_USER:-
1. After uploading using FNDLOAD, user will be promoted to change their password again during their next signon attempt.
2. All the responsibilities will be extracted by FNDLOAD alongwith User Definition in FND_USER
3. In the Target Environment , make sure that you have done FNDLOAD for new responsibilities prior to running FNDLOAD on users.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-->To FNDLOAD profile Option
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD O Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscprof.lct POR_ENABLE_REQ_HEADER_CUST.ldt PROFILE PROFILE_NAME="POR_ENABLE_REQ_HEADER_CUST" APPLICATION_SHORT_NAME="ICX"
--> Note that
--> POR_ENABLE_REQ_HEADER_CUST is the short name of profile option
--> We aren't passing the user profile option name in this case. Validate using ...
----->select application_id, PROFILE_OPTION_NAME || '==>' || profile_option_id || '==>' ||
----->USER_PROFILE_OPTION_NAME
----->from FND_PROFILE_OPTIONS_VL
----->where PROFILE_OPTION_NAME like '%' || upper('&profile_option_name') || '%'
----->order by PROFILE_OPTION_NAME
----->/

--> Now to upload
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD O Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscprof.lct POR_ENABLE_REQ_HEADER_CUST.ldt

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-->To FNDLOAD Request sets that contain the stages and links for underlying concurrent programs
--> For this you will be firstly required to download the request set definition.
--> Next you will be required to download the Sets Linkage definition
--> Well, lets be clear here, the above sequence is more important while uploading
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcprset.lct XX_GL_MY_INTERFACE_SET.ldt REQ_SET REQUEST_SET_NAME="FNDRSSUB4610101_Will_look_like_this"
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcprset.lct XX_GL_MY_INTERFACE_SET_LINK.ldt REQ_SET_LINKS REQUEST_SET_NAME="FNDRSSUB4610101_Will_look_like_this"
--> Note that FNDRSSUB4610101 can be found by doing an examine on the
----->select request_set_name from fnd_request_sets_vl
----->where user_request_set_name = 'User visible name for the request set here'

--> Now for uploading the request set, execute the below commands
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcprset.lct XX_GL_MY_INTERFACE_SET.ldt
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcprset.lct XX_GL_MY_INTERFACE_SET_LINK.ldt

-->To FNDLOAD Responsibility
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD O Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscursp.lct XX_PERSON_RESPY.ldt FND_RESPONSIBILITY RESP_KEY="XX_PERSON_RESPY"
--> note that XX_PERSON_RESPY is the responsibility key

--> Now to upload
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD O Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afscursp.lct XX_PERSON_RESPY.ldt

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-->To FNDLOAD Forms personalizations
--> For the forms personalizations, I have given three examples as below.
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_PERWSHRG.ldt FND_FORM_CUSTOM_RULES function_name="PERWSHRG-404"
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_HZ_ARXCUDCI_STD.ldt FND_FORM_CUSTOM_RULES function_name="HZ_ARXCUDCI_STD"
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_AP_APXVDMVD.ldt FND_FORM_CUSTOM_RULES function_name="AP_APXVDMVD"
--> Note that the function name above is the function short name as seen in the Function Definition Screen

-->To FNDLOAD Forms personalizations that are defined against these forms functions....
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_PERWSHRG.ldt
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_HZ_ARXCUDCI_STD.ldt
FNDLOAD apps/$CLIENT_APPS_PWD 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/affrmcus.lct XX_AP_APXVDMVD.ldt

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes :
1. Give special attention when downloading Menus or Responsibilities.
In case your client has several developers modifying Responsibilities and Menus, then be ultra carefull. Not being carefull will mean that untested Forms and Functions will become available in your clients Production environment besides your tested forms, functions and menus.

2. Be very careful when downloading flexfields that reference value sets with independent values for GL Segment Codes.
By doing so, you will download and extract all the test data in GL Codes that might not be applicable for production.

3. There are several variations possible for FNDLOAD, for example you can restrict the download and uploads to specific segments within Descriptive Flex Fields. Please amend the above examples as desired for applying appropriate filterations.

4. The list of examples by no mean cover all possible FNDLOAD entities.

5. FNDLOAD is very reliable and stable, if used properly. This happens to by one of my favourite Oracle utilities.

4. Last but not the least, please test your FNDLOAD properly, so as to ensure that you do not get any unexpected data. In past I have noticed undesired results when the Lookup gets modified manually directly on production, and then the FNDLOAD is run for similar changes. If possible, try to follow a good practice of modifying FNDLOADable data only by FNDLOAD on production environment.

5. As the name suggests, FNDLOAD is useful for FND Related objects. However in any implementation, you will be required to migrate the Setups in Financials and Oracle HRMS from one environment to another. For this you can use iSetup. "Oracle iSetup".
Some of the things that can be migrated using Oracle iSetup are
GL Set of Books, HR Organization Structures, HRMS Employees, Profile Options Setup, Suppliers, Customers,  Tax Codes
& Tax Rates, Financials Setup, Accounting Calendars, Chart of Accounts, GL Currencies.
