Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Lists of Values

A List of Values (LOV) is a reusable list that can be built dynamically with a SQL select statement or with a static set of values typed in by the developer.  The two types of LOV’s are Static and Dynamic.

Static LOV

To create a static LOV, navigate to the Shared Components page.

1.       On the Shared Components page, click the Lists of Values link.

2.       Click the Create button.

3.       On the Source page, choose the From Scratch option.

4.       On the Name and Type page:

  • Enter the name for the LOV.  The example is named GENDER.

  • Type: Choose Dynamic or Static.  The example is Static.

  • Click Next. 

5.       On the Query or Static Values page, enter values for the LOV.  The Display Value can be whatever the developer decides, but the Return Value should match any referential integrity in the database.  Figure 10.20 shows the values entered for the example.

6.       Finally, click the Create List of Values button.
