Re: Declining performance remote - why?

Thanks for your reply. It's running Oracle 11.2.0.1.0 on a Linux system. How do I specify an index when using se16? I don't understand how to tailor my query to use an index using se16. This problem happens only when remote - would an index be used only on-site but not when remote, or would a differ...

Declining performance remote - why?

In pulling the same data, the same columns weekly from the CATSDB using se16, over time the number of records has roughly doubled but the number of records I can pull before the 20-minute timeout kicks in has been cut almost fourfold. The CATSDB had about 2M records give or take at the start and I c...

Re: Totally clueless?

Deliberate harebrained design. Absolutely the poorest implementation I have seen in HR in over a dozen years and over a dozen systems. :shock:

Totally clueless?

If you saw in a large implementation of SAP HR, that in infotype 0006 all the emergency contact names had the relationship hard-coded such as Spouse_Smith, John ...wouldn't this strike you as prima facie evidence that the people who did the implementation didn't know what the f*** they were doing?

Re: Net due Date calculation based on baseline date and payment

You can look at the FM to see what parameters to pass. Also, I took 30 seconds out of my busy day to google DETERMINE_DUE_DATE and look at the first of a number of hits that explained it and how to use it, answers going back a few years - why don't you try that? :roll: I suggest you ignore the answe...

Re: Change code

How do I change the code to look nicer? or work better. To make your code look nicer, I would use a different font. Bookman Old Style is nice. I also like Modern Bodoni. Some people like to make it look even nicer by using the space bar and/or indenting. But that is all nonsense, I say. Make your c...

Re: Is Rick Perry Dumb?

Bush flew fighter jets. If you are competent enough to fly fighter jets, you may be arrogant, you may be boastful, you may swagger. But you are most certainly not dumb. Perry flew C-130s for 5 years. If you are competent enough to fly that beast, although not a fighter jet, you are still most certai...

Re: Seeking: User Exit after personnel action

Then go to the flow logic where the PBO and PAI modules are called, there are modules that should be called like post_input_checks or user_command_0001 that fall after the PAI. Usually I've done this only for a specific infotype - I don't know if there is a central place for *any* personnel action (...

Re: Split a string at a number

Actually I could do it using SPLIT, even recursively, but your suggestion Yuri is probably better... :P Something along the lines of: if the string contains any of <numbers 0-9> assign that number to var1 SPLIT at var1 ..and I'll leave the rest as an exercise to the reader, as the textbooks say! :ro...

Re: Split a string at a number

This sounds like a wonderful "Programming 101" exercise - it also sounds like something you should do for yourself and at least post YOUR efforts to solve it, before you ask US to spoon-feed you. You are aware of the SPLIT command? And of the various string comparison operators and other string comm...
