Need of a flexfield qualifier

Explain the need of a flexfield qualifier.

A flexfield qualifier identifies a particular segment of a key flexfield. For eg: an application needs some method of identifying a particular segment for some application purpose such as security or computations. However, since the key flexfield can be customized so that segments appear in any order with any prompts, the application needs a mechanism other than the segment name or segment order to use for segment identification. Flexfield qualifiers serve this purpose. We can think of a flexfield qualifier as an”identification tag” for a segment.
