New Tables



I found some additional PeopleTools system tables that I am adding to my reference.

The PSPNLCNTRLDATA table stores additional settings for each field on the page.  For example, it holds the new fields PTGRDLAYOUT and GRIDROWS in PeopleTools 8.50 relating to scrollable grids.

The PSPNLFIELDEXT table also stores additional settings for the fields on the page.

The PSPTPNLRTEDITOR is a new table to PeopleTools 8.50 that stores settings related to the new rich-text editor on long character fields.

In the process of researching, I found a huge PeopleTools Tables Reference.

Here is another related tid-bit.  Here is how to decipher the bits in the UseEdit flag (for Oracle):

SELECT FIELDNAME, USEEDIT ,
BITAND(USEEDIT,1) BIT1,
BITAND(USEEDIT,2) BIT2,
BITAND(USEEDIT,4) BIT4,
BITAND(USEEDIT,8) BIT8,
BITAND(USEEDIT,16) BIT16,
BITAND(USEEDIT,32) BIT32,
BITAND(USEEDIT,64) BIT64,
BITAND(USEEDIT,128) BIT128,
BITAND(USEEDIT,256) BIT256,
BITAND(USEEDIT,512) BIT512,
BITAND(USEEDIT,1024) BIT1024,
BITAND(USEEDIT,2048) BIT2048,
BITAND(USEEDIT,4096) BIT4096,
BITAND(USEEDIT,8192) BIT8192,
BITAND(USEEDIT,16384) BIT16384,
BITAND(USEEDIT,32768) BIT32768,
BITAND(USEEDIT,65536) BIT65536,
BITAND(USEEDIT,131072) BIT131072,
BITAND(USEEDIT,262144) BIT262144,
BITAND(USEEDIT,524288) BIT524288,
BITAND(USEEDIT,1048576) BIT1048576,
BITAND(USEEDIT,2097152) BIT2097152,
BITAND(USEEDIT,4194304) BIT4194304,
BITAND(USEEDIT,8388608) BIT8388608,
BITAND(USEEDIT,16777216) BIT16777216,
BITAND(USEEDIT,33554432) BIT33554432,
BITAND(USEEDIT,67108864) BIT67108864,
BITAND(USEEDIT,134217728) BIT134217728,
BITAND(USEEDIT,268435456) BIT268435456
FROM PSRECFIELDALL
WHERE RECNAME = 'MIS_TEST_LONG'
AND FIELDNAME IN ('EMPLID', 'ACTION_TEXT');

For a reference on the UseEdit field, check out this link. I found that the second to last one is the new “Allow Search Events for Prompt Dialogs” option.  To find records that have this option selected, you can use this query:

SELECT * FROM PSRECFIELDALL 
WHERE BITAND(USEEDIT,134217728) <> 0;

    Also see these for 8.50, which are beyond the list from your link.

    * InTypeAhd
    o Indicates that the field is used as a Type Ahead field and appears in the type ahead window.
    o UseEdit – 536870912

    * EnTypeAhd
    o Specifies whether Type Ahead has been enabled in a search record.
    o UseEdit – 1073741824

    SELECT * FROM PSRECFIELDALL
    WHERE bitand(USEEDIT,536870912) 0
    OR bitand(USEEDIT,1073741824) 0;
