Forms Data Loader (FDL) is a tool to load data into Oracle Apps through front end forms. It provides an easy to use and cost effective solution for loading test or legacy data into Oracle Applications. Although it is specially built for loading data into Oracle, It can be used to load data in any application running under Windows. Requires no special technical knowledge and can be used by any non technical end users as data is loaded through front end.
HTML Forms Data Loader (HDL) is a tool to load data from CSV / Delimited
Files into any HTML based Web Form. It can be particularly used to enter
data into latest Oracle EBS Suite R12, R12.2.x.
It is a supplement to Forms Data Loader Tool which uses Macros to enter data in Forms. Since, HTML forms usually does not provide any Alt Keys (Hot Keys) it is quite difficult to load data into HTML forms using Forms Data Loader through Macros and Forms Record and Playback is impossible in HTML form.
We used to get lot of feedback from users expressing difficulty in loading data using Macros and they wanted a easy solution to load data in HTML forms. HTML Forms Data Loader is an answer for all these demands.
