How you used to do migrations for the projects you have developed? 120. Asked a scenario, where we are migrating data from source to target and there is already some data in target related to presently migrating data. So, how can you delete the data in target which is not needed while migrating? 121. Have you worked with Workflows from scratch? 122. Explain about Workflows? 123. Briefly explain the implementation process for a workflow application along with the workflow application which you did in your present project . 124. Have you worked with PS-Query? 125. What are the different types of queries present and the queries you have worked with. 126. Given details of an effective dated table and asked to tell the query which gives the rows which are active as of today -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Explain your projects. 3. Did you write SQRs? 4. Did you write Application Engine programs and what are they. 5. In which area are you comfortable? 6. List out few People Code events. 7. I was given few scenarios and asked for the events in which to write the logic. 8.

What are the Record types and list them. 17. What is the use of Field Formula event? -- functions 18. Difference between SQL View, Dynamic View and Query View. – Query view is selected to define the Record definition as a view that is constructed using the PeopleSoft Query tool. 19. SQL statement to print “X reporting Y, Y reporting Z,..”. 20. How to change the table name dynamically in the run time? – Derived record, %Edit Table field.. 21.

If you are asked to print a report, which one do you choose (SQRs or App Engine) and why? – It depends on Time (if it is more critical then go for SQR else go for AE) and Cost issue. And also AE has certain limitations. 31. Difference between SQL View and Query View. 32. What is Temporary table? 33. What is Set Processing? (Difference between Row-by-Row and Set Processing). 34.

What events get fired when you try to save a Component? 41. When does Save post change event fire? And what kind of actions takes place in it? 42. Events for validations. 43. Difference between Prompt table with Edit and without Edit? – Prompt table with Edit will not accept values which are not defined in the Prompt table where as Prompt table without Edit will accept values (at run time) which were not defined in the Prompt table. 44. Difference between Exit0 and Exit1. – Exit0: immediate termination with no rollback. Exit1: immediate termination with rollback. 45. How many Sub Pages and how many Secondary Pages can be kept in a Page (in a level).

46. How can we restrict a Record level People Code from affecting on other Components that use the same record? – If %Component = “Particular Component name”. 47. Define STDAPI.sqc – Process Scheduler interface which is used to initiate and terminate some field values like Process_Instance and RuncontrolId 48. Difference between Get and Find Methods. 49. How to call a Secondary Page through People code? – Domodel. 50. How to trace an SQR? – using ‘-S’ flag, Show, Display. 51. In a level, when you enter a value in a field, the remaining fields should get hide. – Hide, Invisible, Visible = True / False. 52. Alternate to Win Message. – Message Box. 53. Calling CI through People Code. – GetCompIntfc. (e.g., &ciJOB = &session.GetCompIntfc(CompIntfc.SHEC_CI_JOB_DATA);< br/>). 54. Difference between SQL Server and Oracle Data Base. 55. Tell me about Expressions in PS Query. – we use Expressions to define anything manually like for calculation and concatenation purpose. (Reporting Tools, PS Query, Query Manager). 56. Types of Application Engine Programs, and explain them. – (Standard: normal entrypoint program, Upgrade only: used in PeopleSoft upgrade utilities, Import only: used by PeopleSoft import utilities, Daemon only: a type of program used as a daemon process, Transform only: a program type used to support Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT)). 57. How to send a mail through an SQR and also through People Code. – SQR: need to write a Procedure with To, From, Data, … e.g., let $cmd = 'uuencode ' || $file || ' ' || $file || ' | mailx -s ' || $subject || ' ' || $email call system using $cmd #status). People code: SendMail. (SendMail(&MAIL_FLAGS, &MAIL_TO, &MAIL_CC, &MAIL_BCC, &MAIL_SUBJECT, &MAIL_TEXT, &MAIL_FILES, &MAIL_TITLES, &MAIL_SENDER);) 58. File layout restrictions. – when we use long field, it will take the length as zero. 59. How to generate excel through CI? Excel To Component Interface Utility. (http://peoplesoft-toolbox.com/resources/PeopleSoft%20Toolbox%20ExcelToCI %20Overview.pdf) 60. Functions mostly used in Save Post Change event. – SQL Execute, … 61. Difference between Do Save and Do Save now. – Do Save: saves the component after the completion of all the events. Do Save now: saves the component immediately. 62. Alternative to Field Change. – Row Init. 63. When does Field Edit event get fired and when do Field Change event? If both get fired on changing a field, then why to use Field Edit, why not Field Change for validations. – Both get fired on changing a field (i.e., on Tab). And we use only Field Edit for validations because Field Change will not fire Errors and Warnings. 64. What is Differed Processing? – If the Page/Field is in Differed processing mode, then the trips to the Data Base server will be reduced. (Allow Differed Processing Check Box: uncheck this to make the system allow the changes to take place immediately after the Tab). 65. How to bypass the Search Page. –

1. You can write the code in the Search Init People Code Event. (Suppose Employee Id is the only key, then the code will look like, EMPLID = %EmployeeId; SetSearchDialogBehavior(0); 2. There is another method of using a record with no keys as the component search record. This will also bypass the search. 66. What are the required SQCs that must be added to an SQR in order to run it through Process Scheduler? – SETENV.sqc, SETUP32.sqc, STDAPI.sqc, RESET.sqc. (Optional – DATETIME.sqc, NUMBER.sqc). 67. Difference between field edit and save edit? -- In Field edit for each field change, a transition to the application server to the database is taken place. In Save edit for all the fields, only one transition to the application server to the Database is taken place. 68. Difference between Pre build and Post build. – Pre build can be used to validate your search data, discarding rows. Post build can be used to play with the pages (hide, unhide), filling up scrolls. 69. Difference between SQLEXEC and CREATESQL? – SQL Exec means it bypasses the component buffer and it is directly contacts database to retrieve data. But it retrieves the data row by row and not possible for bulk insert. – But in the case of Create SQL we can able insert the data in bulk. 70. Difference between SQR and SQC. – we cannot place Begin-Program Section in SQC, SQR can be Compiled and Executed which cannot be in SQC, we can call one SQC from other SQC and from other SQR, we cannot call one SQR from other SQR. 71. What are Properties and Collections – Properties: field to field mapping between Component and Component Interface. Collections: it contains fields and subordinate scroll as defined in underlying component. 72. Did you worked on Workflow? 73.
