What are user item type item attributes?
The User Item Type item attribute is a Quick Code we use when we define an item. We can use the types provided by Oracle Inventory or create our own.
You cannot change the values in this field after saving them. To remove an obsolete Quick Code you can disable the code, enter an end date, or change the meaning and description to match a replacement code.
What are item templates?
Templates are defined sets of attributes that you can use over and over to create many similar items. Templates make initial item definition easier.
Copying Templates: To make defining templates easier, you can use the Copy From function on the Tools menu in the Item Templates window.
You can apply as many templates as you want to an existing item.
Indicate whether the template is restricted to use by only one
Organization. If you leave the organization code blank, you can use the template in any organization.
Why can’t we change the organization specific templates?
For organization specific templates, some attributes, such as the planner, may be tied to the organization. For this reason, you cannot change the organization specified in the template once the template has been defined.
Attention: If you enable a status attribute, its value will not be applied to the item if the status attribute is under status control.
What does Cross–Reference Types Define?

2. Select an item.

What are customer item commodity codes?

What is a category and category set?
A category is a logical classification of items that
have similar characteristics. A category set is a distinct grouping scheme and consists of categories.
How many structures can an item category flexfield have?
You can define multiple segment structures for the Item Categories Flexfield. Each segment structure may have its own display prompts and fields.
What are the two-category flexfield structures by default
When you install or upgrade Oracle Inventory or Oracle Purchasing?
Oracle provides two category flexfield structures by default: Item Categories and PO Item Category.
A category can belong to multiple category sets. You can assign a category to a category set either at the time you define a category set or at the time you assign an item to the category.
Attention: The categories assigned to a category set must have the same flexfield structure as the set itself. This is true even if you choose not to validate the category list.
Category sets: You can use categories and category sets to group items for various reports and programs.
Note: The category set Inventory is seeded when you install Oracle Inventory. The category set Purchasing is seeded when you install Oracle Purchasing.
