Question: What is '$flex$ and '$profile$, Waht is the use of '$flex$'?

Answer: $Flex$ is used when we need to return the Flex value contained by any AOL Vlauset or AOL object .

For Ex . $Flex$.<Valueset name> would return the value held by that valueset .

$profiles$. are used to get the values of environment variables like org_id or mfg_Organization_id etc which are related to the current apps environment.

Ex. $profiles$.org_id would return the operating unit which is active at that time for the user.

=======

create another value set by name JOB datatype CHAR(20)
validation type TABLE
click EDIT INFORMATION
table name (SELECT DISTINCT DEPTNO,JOB FROM EMP)
JOB CHAR 20
where/order by WHERE DEPTNO=:$FLEX$.DPTNO

and mention this valueset in the concurrent >program>define>parameter form.

first create an value set of DTNO of Table validation type
click EDIT INFORMATION
at table name (SELECT DISTINCT DEPTNO FROM EMP)
in the concurrent>program>define>parameter form

default type -SQL STATEMENT
default value - SELECT DISTINCT DEPTNO,JOB FROM EMP WHERE DEPTNO=:$FLEX$.DTNO
