      Hi

      We are on 12.1.3 but what is Target Mini-pack/Family Pack/Release 12.1.4 as in readme, will this patch change the version from 12.1.3 to 12.1.4.
      Can we apply this pacth..?

          Hi 955685,

          Your release will remain at 12.1.3 level but for this products it looks they call it 12.1.4 (just only for this product also no version number will be mentioned in the Application).
          If you want to be 100% sure you need to create a topic in "Receivables (ar)" or create Service Request against this Team

          I have checked the patch and as long as you install all prereqs listed you are so 12.1.1, 12.1.2 or 12.1.3 and all Soft Prerequisites listed you are safe. As always be sure to test and have a valid backup.

          Regards,
          Ronald

            The patch will not change your application release and you will remain on 12.1.3
            Can we apply this pacth..?
            Yes you can.
            is this pacth to be applied .?
            Yes.

            This indicates that the patch will be included in the 12.1.4 release, however the next release of 12.1.3 would be 12.2

            Thanks,
            Hussein
