Flexfields in Oracle apps

As the name suggests, a flexfield is a flexible field. It is made up of various subfields or segments. Each segment in a flexfield will have a name and optionally a set of values. A segment is validated using a different value set. You can assign a single value set to more than one segment, and you can even share value sets among different flexfields. This means you can have two segments having the same value but different prompts.
