Hi all,

we have oracle EBS 11i (11.5.10.2) .
Now, I want to some doubt at personalization level.

With ref. to following setting ,

Actions:
=========
Type = menu

we are getting MENU 1 - 15 & SPECIAL 1 - 45 in MENU ENTRY .

Now, my query is what is the difference between MENU 1 - 15 & SPECIAL 1 - 45 ?

In which scenerio, they are used ?

Request assist me, if possible.

    MENU1 through MENU15 menu entries, available in the Tools pulldown menu. These are guaranteed not to be used by Oracle and are exclusively for customer use, therefore we strongly encourage you to use these entries as opposed to the SPECIAL menu entries in order to avoid collisions of code. When the user selects the entry, it will fire the corresponding MENU# trigger. You must also create another rule that traps this Trigger Event and performs the desired functionality.

    Forms Personalization:
    SPECIALn
    Populate tools menu (SPECIAL 1-15)
    Populate reports menu (SPECIAL 16-30)
    Populate actions menu (SPECIAL 31-45)
    MENUn
    Populate tools menu (MENU1-15)
    Use these before SPECIALn

    HTH,
