How to Migrate DFF from one instance to another instance

Run the below download command in home directory of Instance1, the ldt file descript_flex.ldt is created in the same directory.

FNDLOAD apps/<password> 0 Y DOWNLOAD @FND:patch/115/import/afffload.lct descript_flex.ldt desc_flex_application DESCRIPTIVE_FLEXFIELD_NAME=description_flexfield_name

desc_flex_application - is the shortname of the Application of the DFF.
