There are three types of flexfields that exist in Fusion Applications:
- Key Flexfields (KFF) – used for standardized data that has a fixed structure. Each elemental value (known as a segment) is meaningful and are combined into a usable group.
- Descriptive Flexfields (DFF) – represent the basic option for adding custom fields to a business object or transaction. Descriptive flexfields can have one or more segments and support the option to add specified contexts against which they offer users a set of input values.
- Extensible Flexfields (EFF) – are similar to DFF’s however are stored in their own tables allowing unlimited numbers of segments, the support for groups of multiple records per parent record, and additional context configuration options. These were new for Fusion Applications.
